You’ve got what it takes to get that job. These 2 sessions will point you in the right direction to get you there more quickly. Join us for this 2-part workshop (Wednesday, May 19th and Friday, May 21st) and learn the specific steps and right mindset and self-care routine to succeed in your job search.
Part 1: Start with Strategy:
You are a professional with skills to offer. But you need to think strategically to stand out as a top candidate. You need to know who you are and what you have to offer. A random, unfocused job search isn’t likely to get you far. it’s essential to consider the skills, experience, education, and know-how you possess.
It’s equally important to communicate this information to others. Simply sending out dozens of resumes to every job announcement you see will likely result in long-term frustration. You are NOT a desperation hire. This session will give you tools for a well-thought-out approach to go after positions you’re interested in.
