Careers at a distance!

Those of you who can’t come into Waterloo for RDP workshops might like to book up for three webinars in early March.  Webinars are real-time online seminars; you just need a computer and internet connection and can take part wherever you happen to be sitting.  You can ask questions, interact with the trainer and open websites or documents as the seminar progresses.

Here’s what one of your colleagues said about the webinar he attended last year: ‘…the presentation as a webinar was excellent. It saved time looking for a seminar venue and I was able to log in and take part remotely (I was not on King’s campus). Although asking questions is a bit slower online – we we’re typing our questions in a chat box – this wasn’t much of an issue and I had all my questions answered (I had a few). Great session, basically!’
