  • Virtual Meeting Etiquette: Best Practices and Protocols for Productivity (March 13)
  • Improving Your Personal Information Security and Awareness (April 10)
  • Cultural Awareness and Diversity in the Workplace (May 8)

Power Up Your Career seminars have been a regular Professional and Continuing Studies offering for nearly a decade. The online webinar series is currently free and open to the public with the goal of offering relevant career tips and resources to members of the community and our region facing professional and personal challenges during the ongoing pandemic.

The free webinars received more than 800 registrations last year, covering subjects like career shifting, resume updating, social media presence, networking and virtual interviewing.

“This seminar series is the perfect venue for reaching out to the community to share career tips and strategies relevant for the current environment,” said UD’s Lynn Fishlock, series coordinator and program manager for UD’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies. “We hope the sessions can help participants become better prepared and positioned to successfully meet the challenges they may be facing.”
