TAKE THE WORK OUT OF NETWORKING

Many job seekers fail to recognize the critical role that networking plays in the job search process.  Most of us avoid it like the plague.  Instead, we spend hours — unproductive hours — tweaking our resumes and applying for jobs online.  Or we force ourselves to network, and the result is that we feel out of place or lose the confidence that is key to landing a job. This workshop will help you to approach networking in an entirely new way.  You will identify “easy” networking opportunities using a multi-pronged approach and learn how to effectively market your skills and experiences to others.  Learn how to make networking a natural part of what you do, and not just for the purpose of finding a job.
