GoodGoing! presents the benefits of Career Coaching for changing work to the Association of Engineers
Some time ago the Association of Engineers of Turin organised an evening dedicated to the ”Flexible Engineer!”
The flexible Engineer
While on the one hand an engineering degree represents the foundations for any type of professional development: from a technical engineer, to an entrepreneur, to the CEO of any type of industry or service company... on the other hand the crisis hasn’t even spared engineering. So we need flexibility and the knowledge of instruments supporting flexibility over and above traditional training and refresher courses.
One of these "instruments" is proficiency in looking for work. “Knowing how to look for work” is a skill like knowing how to use a PC, email, social media, English and networking, which unlike other skills is not taught anywhere yet.
Cristina Gianotti of GoodGoing! was one of the promoters of the event at the Association, since she is also a member of the Association of Engineers of the Province of Turin and is one of the speakers. Aside from talking about methodology, she brought a couple of concrete examples from her experience in supporting engineers both as employees and consultants in the development of their professional career. This experience stems from another venture launched by the Association of Engineers of the Province of Milan called DevelopING, that is still available at the Association of Engineers of Milan for its members.
