Topic:  “Career Karma – Maximising your career potential”


Have you ever applied for a job that you were perfect for, but you didn’t even get an interview?

Have you ever discovered that someone else secured the 'dream job’ that you didn’t even get an opportunity to apply for? 

Have you ever been for an interview that you thought you aced and yet didn't receive a job offer?

A veteran executive recruiter, James Fairbairn has distilled over two decades of experience into the theory of ‘Career Karma’, the book on which is a concise handbook which proves invaluable advice to job seekers and those looking for a change in career. Nothing happens in a career by chance and James will show how you can maximise your chances of success. Covering such areas as researching the job market, career planning, networking, interview preparation and techniques, and perfecting your resume, this is a talk that you cannot afford to miss.
