A lot of GROWING during the past few weeks at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Rona had a wonderful time working with students from across the globe at the Humboldt-Universität 🌍 🌎 🌏
She facilitated four workshops with the international students. The future of work, internationalisation, professional development and working across various countries were amongst the topics. Where can I go and work with my skills? What do I have to pay attention to in Europe and Germany? Do cover letters and CVs still matter? What are new ways of finding employment? How can I use technology and social media to my advantage? Loads of interesting and culturally diverse discussions, with participants from literally 'all corners' of the world.
And to say it with Mary Schmichs words " Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life...the most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives - some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't. Never congratulate or berate yourself too much either. "
Some feedback from the participants:
“The classes Rona delivered were very useful for me. She brings so much light, inspiration and motivation! Rona really lights up the class, makes you feel like everything is possible, that is a blessing that only few are able to bring out. Happy to have been there and see the possibilities by listening to her words and liveliness. She has an ability to install hope where one is lost.”
"Rona helped me a lot with my self-confidence. Usually, when I was supposed to present in class, I was always so nervous and panicking - I could not even start the presentation. Rona created a very comforting and friendly environment, where I felt safe and able to speak up. I really improved during these sessions."
"The course was very useful. I loved the discussions and group work. We got to know each other and learnt a lot from and with each other."
The importance of networking! Build your network and understand the importance of every person you encounter. Be kind. Never burn bridges.
The whole group of wonderful individuals from all over the place.
