SUCCESSFUL JOB SEARCH STRATEGIES

Most job seekers only compete for advertised postings on the internet. Unfortunately, that strategy only targets 20% of the jobs that are actually out there! To be successful, job seekers need to access the “hidden” market, the 80% of jobs which are unadvertised but which employers still need to fill. By attending this workshop, participants learn the secret of targeting jobs before they go public. They also learn how to make job search preparations, articulate their skills, secure valuable referrals, and use networking techniques that really work. By applying these tools in their lives, participants gain the competitive edge they need to stay motivated, get noticed, and get hired.
