Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

The Careers and Enterprise Hub, Augustine House, Canterbury

What is imposter syndrome? Do we all come across it in our careers? How do we overcome it?

Do you ever feel doubt about your abilities and skills?

Do you feel inadequate or like a fraud?

Do you struggle with feelings of inadequacy or incompetence?

Do these fears stop you from applying for your dream job, a promotion or a change in career path?

This workshop will delve into what causes imposter syndrome, the different types of imposter syndrome and how we can learn to lessen its effects on our lives. How can we learn to accept those compliments, deserve the praise and stop ignoring the evidence that we can do our jobs, or have the experience to apply for the jobs we want and how can we learn to be proud of our skills and talents?

Open to students, staff and recent alumni, we hope you can join us to discuss imposter syndrome and how we can work together to combat imposter syndrome and improve our own sense of value. Please register in advance.
