At our March event, on 18 March 19.00–20.30 CET, we’ll discuss how to develop a career as a language professional. We’ll chat about resources and opportunities, and we’ll also discuss how to balance CPD with (paid) work and life.

*Hot tip*: CPD is short for Continuing Professional Development.

Things to think about:
- Skills development (e.g. editing, translation, etc.)
- Business development (e.g. marketing, website, client acquisition, etc.)
- Subject area development (e.g. your niche, content you can edit/translate)
- Language development (e.g. learning a new language, etc.)

Based on the skills that you have, what do you think you’re missing? What are your strengths?

What CPD programs or events have you followed already? What were your experiences?

Those who’ve followed courses or attended CPD events before can share resources with those looking for CPD opportunities. We’ll send out some resources before the event and hope to collect more resources from you to share a longer list after the event as well.

Hope to see you there!
