If you’re looking for ways to develop a competitive edge, it’s time to consider professional development webinars. 

Continually learning and honing your talents means that you’ll be ready for whatever comes your way, including new projects and leadership opportunities. For today’s busy employee, webinars provide one of the most efficient, affordable ways you can engage in professional development and at K-State Olathe, we offer a variety of options designed to ensure you’re able to find success whether you’re studying animal health, advanced manufacturing or something else entirely. 

One of the biggest reasons to consider attending a webinar is that you don’t have to make a large time commitment and you don’t have to make a large financial investment. Webinars are an affordable way to focus on your professional development.  

Webinars consist of: 

  • Communication skills 
  • Industry knowledge 
  • Career path options 
  • Specialized information 
  • Presentations by experts 
  • Questions and answers 

If you’re going to attend a webinar, be sure you prepare in advance. 

First, you’ll want to block off enough time to prepare for and wind down from the webinar. While the session you attend may be an hour long, be sure to give yourself enough time to formulate questions in advance and write down any notes you may have after the conclusion of the presentation. 

You’ll also want to make sure you choose a webinar that will have the greatest impact on your academic journey or career. For example, if you’re an animal health professional, choosing one of K-State Olathe’s animal health webinars could be the right choice. Our webinars offer a variety of topics, including statistics and communication. You can view our complete list of upcoming webinars here. 

Finally, be sure you invite your colleagues and classmates to the webinars you’re planning to attend. Chances are that if you’re going to benefit from attending the event, the other people in your life will, too. 

No matter where you are in your academic or career journey, it’s important to continually look for ways to improve your personal knowledge and your career skills. Whether you’re looking for the chance to become a better communicator or you just want to enhance your skills, a webinar is the perfect starting place.
