About this workshop

Are you currently job searching or about to begin the process? Feeling anxiety about how and where to get started, or where to spend your time? In this hands-on, interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to use proven methods to find and land the job you’re looking for. We’ll discuss topics such as:

  • How to tap into the “hidden” job market. Did you know that 80% of jobs may never be posted publicly? This probably includes the job you’re looking for!
  • How to effectively tell your story and position yourself for the roles you want. Job searching is all about effective marketing and storytelling, and we'll discuss tactics to "connect the dots" of your prior experience so that it resonates for target employers.

  • How to budget your time and keep yourself organized. It’s often said that looking for a job is a full-time job, and we’ll talk about how you can work smarter to ensure that you’re conducting your search efficiently and effectively.

Takeaways

  • Understand how to create a tailored job search strategy.
  • Identify at least 3 specific and measurable goals for their search.
  • Identify up to 5 target organizations to focus on in their search.
