New ‘Power Up Your Career’ topics coming soon

The University of Delaware’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies (UD PCS) is working on the Fall 2023 line-up of its Power Up Your Career seminar series. The professional development mini-program is open to anyone looking for practical and immediately applicable career tips and resources.

Past seminars have focused on topics for professionals who may be transitioning in their careers, seeking to enhance their careers or considering the implications of returning to their on-site workplaces, with sessions like:

  • Elevating Your Passion into Your Profession
  • Standing Out in a Competitive Job Market
  • Getting Back into the Workplace
  • Finding and Maintaining Motivation in Your Professional Life 

“As we all take stock of our post-pandemic workplaces and careers, most of us recognize that a lot has changed during the last few years, bringing both challenges and opportunities,” said UD’s Debra Fields, series coordinator and program manager for career services at UD’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies. “The ‘new normal’ is still evolving for everyone,” added Fields.

“We collaborate with our professional career coaches to develop seminar topics that can help address some of the real-life scenarios we’re all facing, whether it’s contemplating a career change, recovering or improving our professional focus, or learning to readjust our work-life balance.”

Past presenters have included Delaware-based career experts Andrea Abernethy, Kris Morrison and Brenda Soto, whose collective credentials and professional backgrounds span career transition mentoring, international and bilingual talent development and career coaching, transition management, outplacement consulting, job-search support, social media and branding for job seekers, and more.

Future seminar topics may include Q & A sessions with industry insiders like recruiters, executives, and other experts sharing updates and current events from their fields.

Power Up Your Career seminars have been a regular UD PCS offering for over a decade. The online webinar series has been offered at no cost since the start of the pandemic to offer relevant career tips and resources to members of our community facing professional and personal challenges. The free webinars have received nearly a thousand registrations since 2020 and have addressed subjects like career shifting, resume updating, social media presence, networking and virtual interviewing.
