Victoria Swan / Deb Crossan: Lockdown Career Tips 1

Given New Zealand’s recent return into Lockdown, my thoughts are with job searchers and  career explorers during this challenging time.  The purpose of this special episode is to feature my friends from the careers industry who will share tips on how to look for work during lockdown, how to best use online platforms for research and networking, and also how to make a great first impression. 

My first guest is Victoria Swan, a Redeployment Consultant and Career Transition Specialist from Auckland Council. She will be followed by Deb Crossan, a Career Development Consultant from the Unitec Institute of Technology.
