Crafting a LinkedIn Profile for the 2015/2016 Job Market and developing your personal Branding Strategy. Recruiters and head hunters are searching LinkedIn every day for job candidates to fill their open positions. This is not an online dating profile! Your LinkedIn profile must include that language that will get picked up in searches, a picture that conveys the right image, and a summary statement that immediately convinces a hiring manager that you are the right fit. In addition, you need to think about the personal brand that you are projecting to the market. From blogging, to tweeting, to joining groups on LinkedIn, you are showing the hiring market your personal brand. Come learn how to ensure that it is in sync with the message that you want to be sending.

Discount: If you would like to sign up for all four seminars we are offering (Sept 14, 21, 28, and Oct 5), please email us ([email protected]) to register directly with us to receieve a 10% discount.

Waiting for interview

Developing Killer Marketing Materials:
Writing a compelling resume and cover letter. If you haven’t refreshed your resume in a while, come hear about the newest trends for resumes and cover letters in hiring and recruiting. We’ll teach you how to position your resume to make a career change, what style of resume you need for the stage in your career, and what types of language and bullets get noticed by hiring managers. It is no longer sufficient to have a beautifully formatted resume. Each and every bullet point and line must be worth the real estate on your resume.

Please feel free to bring a copy of your resume if you would like. You can follow along and take notes as we discuss resumes and cover letters.

Networking 101: Did you know 70% of jobs are found through networking? And that 80% of jobs are never even posted? Come learn how to effectively network for your next position as well as give a solid elevator pitch introducing yourself. If you aren’t sure how to go about networking, this is a great chance to learn how to identify networking contacts and then how to email and request a networking meeting or phone call. We will dive deep into the tools that LinkedIn provides for building your network and finding contacts. This session will be interactive and will include a simulated networking meeting. In addition, we will teach you how to deliver a two minute “elevator pitch” response to the question “so, tell me about yourself?” that covers your background and future career goals in a meaningful and targeted way.
