A Recruiter’s Perspective on How to Job Search in the “New Talent Economy”

Monday, Jan 9,

Glenview Library (1930 Glenview Rd)
This meeting will provide perspectives from both the executive recruiter and the hiring company. If you don’t understand how they think and what they look for in top candidates, the process of elimination can be extremely frustrating. During the presentation portion of our meeting, Lynn Hazan, a Chicago executive recruiter for 32 years, will share her perspectives that help executives address key questions such as:
  • How do I create demand for my talent?
  • How can I compete against a younger workforce?
  • Why am I being overlooked?
  • How do I get on a recruiter’s radar screen?
More specifically, during this session, Lynn will lead a very interactive presentation that will talk about the new talent recruiting environment. Companies have become more picky with their candidate selections. And there’s a widening gap between experienced, mature talent and younger, technology-based individuals. So what can you do? That’s where Lynn can help and during her presentation she will focus on how you can:
  • Leverage your career-long relationships to get noticed.
  • Add value for a potential employer.
  • Keep up to date with changing technology and client needs.
  • Uncover the “hidden job market”.
  • Effectively identify, develop and market your unique value proposition.
Lynn is the President of Lynn Hazan & Associates and her clients range from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial firms covering a broad range of industries spanning B2B, B2C and non-profit organizations. The majority of Lynn’s searches are for the Chicago area and her list of active job search assignments can viewed by clicking here.
Additionally, if you sign-up at the LH&A career portal (www.mylynnhazancareer.com) you’ll be able to access resume reviews, take career assessment tests and view job-related webinars. Lynn also serves on the Executive Board for DePaul University’s marketing advisory council and her firm has been quoted in CNN Money, Forbes.com and Money magazine.
Most importantly, Lynn delivers a great presentation and her knowledge of what wins over recruiters is invaluable. Additionally, all meeting attendees will be entitled to a discount on one of Lynn’s workshops and there will be a special drawing that will award one individual with a free hour of job search consulting from Lynn.

#1 How to Revive Your Job Search

– Friday, January 6th @ 12:00 pm EST (9:00 am PST, 10:00 am CST, 11:00 am CST)

If you feel like your job search is stalled, it’s time to make changes. You can’t continue to conduct your job search the SAME way and expect DIFFERENT results. During this session you will learn how to jump start your efforts by focusing on the following:

  • How to evaluate your job search
  • Changes you need to make
  • Additional tips to revive your job search
  • Daily priorities

#2 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!

#3 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
