On February 1st, 2014, the British Alumni Society (BAS), in cooperation with the US State Alumni Association (AA), has launched a new business initiative called Focus on Career, dedicated to career development.
The Focus on Career is intended for recent graduates looking for an interesting job in Poland as well as professionals interested in further development or career change.
Focus on Career is the result of collaboration between the BAS, AA and well-known HR company – Meissner & Partners Executive Search. To give our members the best possible opportunity in the Polish labour market, we have consulted a team of renowned HR industry experts, like Renata Bogdańska, HR Director at Procter & Gamble and Lucyna Wolsztyn, HR Director at Kellogg’s, during the development of this programme. In the future we plan to liaise with many other consulting and advisory firms and have already established partnership with ProNavigare, which provides services in Vocational Education and Training (VET).
Through this programme our members will have access to information about interesting job offers, internships, apprenticeships, career counselling, and soft skills training.
The training programme will be available in mid-February (first modules: media, self-presentation, and communication in the workplace). Additionally, once a month, it will be possible for members to book an individual appointment with the career advisor.
Please contact Marcin Swider (firstname.lastname@example.org), Focus on Career BAS coordinator, if you have any comments. We look forward to your ideas, comments and suggestions.
Part of the Focus on Career inactivate will involve the creation of a database containing people interested in participating in this project. The database will link people to their professional expertise and interests. In the first few months we will inform all active members of both Societies regularly on our programmes process to encourage members to sign up to our project . Join our Linkedin group for staying up-to-date with all announcements.
