The trainer brainer: Use webinars to your advantage on the path towards career development
Webinars will give you tools, models, questionnaires and worksheet appropriate to your requirements. Webinars are being conducted on digital platforms on a daily basis now amid the COVID-19 crisis
The virtual world is here to stay for long and will be part of several avenues of your personal, professional and social life. If you can find a way to manipulate the merits to your own benefit, then you will stand to gain. One such area that youngsters, particularly the graduates who are on the path towards career development, must be sensitised to is the ‘world of webinars’.
Webinars are being conducted on digital platforms on a daily basis as an effective tool that combines the world of ‘web’ and a ‘seminar’, offered either on a free or a paid basis. The webinars are a focused online activity in which a presenter can share his expertise or knowledge in a particular field on a real-time basis. Webinars offer you the flexibility to choose the particular area or field that you want to get oriented or trained in and give you the satisfaction of being able to be interactive, apart from helping you learn quickly.
Today, as a human resource mentor, I can see the growth of webinars in the field of human resource mentoring and career counselling, offered by seasoned professionals and reputed agencies/organisations. Webinars come as a great resource for the youth to sit at home and get access to recent trends and practices that are followed by organisations in the field of recruitment and training. Moreover, the educational courses that they are attending might be limited in terms of providing them with hands-on experience and industry-related simulations that are a requisite for placement opportunities. The unprecedented lockdown is another factor that prevents the youth from having physical connectivity to career guidance seminars and workshops in the normal course of the academic calendar.
An insight into how to make use of the webinars for career development would be of immense use and value to you, as you prepare yourself for the same. You need not be bothered if you aren’t technologically experienced. It is very sequentially structured to make you independently operate any system.
