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. Keeping abreast of new job search technologies, interviewing methods and communication tools are just part of the adjustments a candidate needs to make in order maximize their efforts. So, what does and doesn’t work in order to accelerate and maximize your time?
During this meeting, executive recruiter and coach, Greg David, will present on specific things you should and shouldn’t do to improve your activity and shorten our job search timeline. Some of the topics that Greg will cover include:

His “historic recollection” methodology and “mirroring” technique enables candidates to create a greater alignment with hiring firms and interviewers.

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!

#1 Re-Think! Shifting for Success in Your Job Search
– Monday, January 16th @ 1:00 pm EST (10:00 am PST, 11:00 am MST, 12:00 pm CST)
When talking to job seekers, I often hear complaints such as, “It’s too hard” or “it’s too frustrating”, or “I’m overwhelmed”. Does the voice in your head habitually complain and say things like, “I can’t do it”?How do you identify the tell-tale signs of this complaining habit, what do you do to overcome it? To get a job offer, you must put your focus, attention, energy, and time on getting hired. This is where you must shift your thinking, because until you do, you’re giving all of your power away.Each and every one of us can take our power back. We simply need the tools and determination.In this results-focused presentation, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to decide and commit to your goal of getting hired.
  • Shift from focusing on “what’s wrong” to focusing on “what works”.
  • Discover how to rise above the circumstances and take powerful action.
  • Be empowered to move through your job search activity with ease.
  • Learn how to powerfully use your time and energy starting today.

Come learn how you can shift your thoughts and feelings of being upset, angry, frustrated, hopeless, burned out, or all of the above. When you know your power, you shift into success immediately!

#2 Make Every Move in Your Search Count
– Monday, January 23rd @ 3:00 pm EST (12:00 pm PST, 1:00 PM MST, 2:00 pm CST)
There is no guarantee that you will find a job if you work hard on your job search. If you’ve been conducting your search for more than 6 months, chances are you’re working hard but not necessarily smart. During this session we will address the following:

  • Getting your resume in the right hands
  • Increasing your networking efforts
  • Other necessary “moves” in your job search

Video
In honor of its Centennial Year in 2013, the Anti-Defamation League launched the “Imagine a World Without Hate” video and action campaign, and we invite you to participate.
Take just 80 seconds of your time to watch this powerful video, which imagines a world without racism, homophobia or anti-Semitism – a world in which the hate violence that took the lives of Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank, Daniel Pearl, Matthew Shepard and others did not happen. Imagine what these individuals could have continued to contribute to society if bigotry, hate and extremism had not cut their lives tragically short.
ADL is most grateful to the families of those featured in the video, whose commitment and participation made this campaign possible, and to the Estate of John Lennon for granting us the rights to use his beautiful and iconic song.
Imagine a World Without Hate. We do. Join us.
