May 13th at 6:30pm join us as John Hadley discusses “Coping with the Strain of Your Search on Relationships”. Please send an email to MartyLatman@gmail.com to register for this meeting. Please indicate in your email that you want to reserve a seat for the session. You can attend the session with your relationships if you want. A career search can be a stressful time. A primary source of income has dried up, you don’t know when you will land, and you experience the roller coaster of emotional ups and downs as opportunities arise, and then fall through. Your spouse, significant other and family are going through all of that with you, yet they feel they no control over the process. You can go to more group networking events, schedule more networking meetings, take more courses, send out more resumes, etc., but what can they do? An extended search can put a huge strain on marriages and relationships. Join us on Thursday, May 13 as John Hadley (www.JHACareers.com) shows us strategies to safeguard those relationships, and actually put them to work to move your search forward!

Login Information for the meeting will be emailed to those registered at 2:00 P.M. and again at 6:30 P.M. on Thursday, 05/13 Researchers tell us that we’ve moved from the ‘Age of Information’ to the ‘Age of Relationships’. They tell us that our professional success depends upon our ability to develop advocates (aka champions) who can provide us access to those people of influence who can help us make the difference we want to make. And NETWORKING remains the #1 way to build relationships that matter. We alone are each responsible for creating a genuine perception of ourselves and our potential to people of influence. However, traditional networking approaches are proving less effective in this post-recession economy. Industry insiders say that the “Elevator Pitch” – as we know it – is dead! 80% of business people report concerns over receiving phony, self-promotional responses to their question ‘Tell me about yourself’.
