FREE WEBINARS:

Presentation Title: Conduct a Smart Job Search
Date:  Thursday, April 19, 2018
Time:   3:00 pm EST (12:00 pm PST, 1:00 pm MST, 2:00 pm CST)
Description:
Working hard on your job search does not guarantee success.  During this session, we will discuss a process that helps escalate your job search.
Presentation Title:  Re-THINK! The Brand Called YOU: Your Personal Branding Session
Date:  Thursday, April 26th
Time:  2:00 pm EST (11:00 am PST, 12:00 pm MST, 1:00 pm CST)
Description:
What is your brand?
 What is the brand that every company wants?
You have a brand whether you’re aware of it or not. The brand is called “YOU” and it’s one of the most important parts of the whole job search process. It’s crucial to be able to distinguish yourself from every other candidate.
You have an important role to articulate why they should hire you.  Learn when you change your inner message, the outer message becomes natural.
What is your character, track record, and reputation?
What can they count on if they hire you?
Who is this YOU they are interviewing?
Bottom line, through a series of questions during the interview, the hiring manager hopes to get to know you. They actually HOPE you are the one.
Many people struggle to talk positively about themselves. It’s strange to think we have to learn how to relate to ourselves in a positive way, yet this is the case with most people. The problem is, when you have difficulty talking about yourself, you’re less likely to share about yourself during the interview or even while networking.
We are going to address all of this. In this webinar, you will learn:
To polish the diamond (That diamond is you)
To instantly change the way you think about YOU
To boost your self-confidence so you can know your full value
To create your “ME” file which compiles all of your good habits, accomplishments, strengths, and what others value in you.
Learn to deal with all the negative thoughts that show up like “mental chatter”. This ego chatter is clouding our ability to see our full value.  Come Re-THINK the brand called YOU and join us for this very uplifting conversation. You’ll walk away with the competitive edge!

Many changes in the job search process have taken place over the past few years and if candidates aren’t adapting to those shifts, their job search can be a significantly longer experience.

Career Advice Tips
You will conduct a much more successful job search if you are prepared and plan your calls at the end of each day. When you are in a job search, there are endless distractions, especially family members who are now comfortable putting demands on your time.

When you are in a job search, you are in sales – which is a numbers game. You must send out resumes daily, call on resumes you have submitted prior and do everything you can to schedule either an informational or job interview every day.

This is only possible, when you are focused and spend most of your time figuring out what you need to do, to schedule your next interview. You can submit 500 resumes a week, but if you schedule no interviews, you will not land your next job.

As you complete your plan, focus on the efforts that have the best chance of giving you results. Any action or contact that can lead to an interview is best use of your time and should be at the top of your plan. If you are not planning for success, you are inadvertently planning for failure.

MUST READ The Library in our Career Portal is filled with articles and training sessions covering hot topics. Too often, job seekers will focus primarily on the aggregate job listings and ignore many of the other resources that are offered. This information is relevant, current and will help you find a job!
