Identify Your Skill Gaps

One of the key aspects of building a career is developing our skills and capabilities. This is because our knowledge, skills, and abilities are what enable us to take on more challenging work and help us perform more complex roles.

One way to ensure we are taking the right steps to create a great career is to build a strong career plan. A solid career plan will help guide us, keep us focused, and ensure we are taking the right steps to achieve the career we want. Even though plans should be flexible and may change, a thoughtful plan is essential to help anyone achieve his or her desired career goals.

The more talent you have, the greater the chance you’ll have of being selected for a new position.

Building a Personal Network

Career moves happen through people. Sometimes you know the person offering you the job, sometimes you don’t. Yet it’s certainly true that the more people you know, the greater the chance you’ll have of uncovering future opportunities, and the greater the chance you’ll know the person interviewing you, which can certainly give you a better shot at getting the job you want.

Branding Yourself

Just like a company must brand its products and services to ensure success, we too must brand ourselves to ensure our own success. Branding yourself helps others in the company get to know your expertise and value. As a result, you may uncover new and exciting work opportunities and strengthen your career.

This course will help you create two branding statements. One that describes the type of work you do, and one that describes your accomplishments and expertise. Although you’ll be able to come up with your answers quickly, the purpose of this action is to take the extra time to really edit and improve your responses to create the best branding statements possible.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know how to brand yourself to others

Reconcile Insufficient Career Opportunities

Sometimes your career aspirations don’t work out the way you want them to. At some point you may find yourself in a situation in which there are little to no opportunities for a positive career move. The lack of opportunities may be due to the size of the company, no jobs that match your expertise, or you may not have the skill set for the jobs that do exist. All of this can be very disappointing and frustrating.

This course will help you not get discouraged, but to make a conscious effort to do something about the situation. Making an effort to stay positive about a difficult situation is hard, but it’s necessary. When you decide to take control and make the best out of a tough situation, you’ll find you can persevere and often find an unexpected and positive outcome.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know how to reconcile a situation with little to no career opportunities

Subject Matter Expert

Vado offers 350+ employee soft skill and management development e-learning courses that is “changing the face of learning” with course design that includes the following elements:

Development Happens on the Job. Research shows that 70% of development happens on the job, and Vado is the only off the shelf e-learning courseware provider that helps the learner apply on the job through step by step instructions.

Chucked Learning. Some call it granular, others call it chunked, microlearning or learning bursts . They mean the same thing – learners want short learning courses. Study after study shows that taking in information in small bite sized chunks leads to increased learner retention. The market has been recognizing this trend toward shorter and shorter learning courses and have shortened e-learning courses from 4 hours to 1 hour to 30 minutes. Our learning content takes this trend to the next step to meet the demands of learners.

Video. In their personal life, employees learn new information by watching videos and they have come to expect that on the job. All of Vado’s courses start with a short instructional video. And the videos are in high definition for a better learner experience.

Optimized for the mobile learner. Mobile means two things: technology and the learner experience. Vado’s learning content is optimized for both meanings. From a technology standpoint, all 300+ courses are viewable from all hand held devices. From a learner experience perspective, small bite sized videos fit the mobile learners’ requirement of not having to complete long courses on their hand held device.
