00:30 to 13:30


The CIPD is committed to supporting people professionals to navigate each stage of their career. Our upcoming webinar series will provide expert advice to help you to identify and achieve the next steps on your path to a rewarding career.

For those entering the people profession, either as a graduate or transitioning from another field, it can be challenging to find the role best suited to your skills and passions.

How should you approach the job search and application process? What skills and experience will make you stand out to employers? What opportunities exist for graduates without experience? How can you build and maintain connections remotely? And what pitfalls should you avoid when applying for roles?

In this webinar, our panel will provide advice on how to find the role for you and provide inspiration and support to help you get your foot in the door to a rewarding career in the people profession.

On the panel:

• Natalie Ellis, HR consultant and author of Launch Your HR Career
