Description

The Career BOOTCAMP comes full circle, back to Brazil!

Join me in Brasilia, for a 2-day intensive and turn your interpreting career around with immediate and durable results.

I will be sharing unique insights and proven strategies to help you attract more clients, secure better assignments and increase your revenue in 2020.

Benefit from the 30+ years of experience of a former Chief Interpreter in the UN system, senior diplomatic interpreter and technology evangelist. Acquire the exact knowledge, tools, and wisdom you'll need to jumpstart your freelancing career, expand your client base, embrace technology or land that dream job.

The 16-hour workshop, which is approved by the ATA for 10 Continuing Education Points (CEPs), will cover four major areas impacting your short- and long-term career planning. Here's a sneak peek:

------------ DAY 1

Module 1: Career advice from a Chief Interpreter

  • The quality metrics of interpreter recruiters
  • Building solid bridges with employers
  • Review of professional demeanor.
  • Self-promotion flops to avoid. Do this, not that!

Module 2: Building a top-of-mind brand identity

  • Differentiating yourself in a commoditized environment
  • Creating a synergistic social media presence
  • Creating an authoritative LinkedIn profile
  • Proven social media hacks. Do this, not that!

------------ DAY 2

Module 3: Opportunities with the UN and other International Organizations

  • Understanding the recruitment practices of large International Organizations
  • Drafting and submitting a winning application
  • The UN Careers portal
  • Exam and interview preparation. Do this, not that.

Module 4: Embracing the brave new world of Remote Interpreting

  • Retooling for success
  • Defining RSI, cloud-based and other IDPs
  • Reassessing fears, adapting to changing times
  • Pricing, ethical and marketing considerations. Do this, not that!

------------ Main Takeaways

This is a hands-on workshop conducted through guided debate, mock interviews, self-guided exercises, and much hard work, in true boot camp fashion. Main takeaways include:

  • a clear list of top and flop strategies when dealing with recruiters
  • a fresh and efficient LinkedIn profile
  • a clean UN Careers profile and application template
  • a list of best practices for RSI
  • an interpreter profile in KUDO (optional)

------------ Bonus Offer
