This Week’s Workshop: Embracing The OTHER Job Market… Thursday, April 2nd, 8:45 AM @ The Egg and I Restaurant in Addison

This Thursday we will be taking a look at The OTHER Job Market strategies from a Career Consultant’s viewpoint.  What are those ‘coachable moments’ that a job seeker often encounters, that, once resolved, can lead to greater effectiveness in job search approaches?  Come and learn how:  1) developing an effective PLAN… Your Personal Marketing Plan, 2) having supportive marketing collateral materials, and 3) holding yourself accountable to proven strategies and tactics …can produce results!

Our shared focus is on effective time management to create efficiency in job search efforts.

(Steps 1-8) Are you fully prepared for the challenging waters of career transition?

(Steps 9-10) Are you executing your plan, with a sense of discipline and accountability, turning opportunities into interviews?

(Steps 11-12) Are you effective with interviewing strategies and tactics… getting to The Offer… closing the deal?

Building and sustaining a dynamic network is a vital part of today’s strategic career development. Each planned contact can lead to others if you ask the right questions and explore the possibilities.  Networking is a two-way street, sometimes with you, the information seeker, being able to provide information to the same person from whom you are seeking it, and at other times being a source of information to other people. In order to get information from others, we must be a good source of information. All it takes is being willing to share information, ideas and resources.  It’s the INTER-ACTIVE, front-end of relationship building.

Remember TIME MANAGEMENT and common courtesy…

Allow for regular time in LinkedIn in order to direct and focus your networking activity.

Make networking calls in a block of time.  Each call is more comfortable than the one before. Do not call people and ask them if they have any openings at their company… This is almost always totally non-productive.

Be sure to ask the person if they have a minute to talk to you, and when finished talking thank them for their time.
