Login Information for the meeting will be emailed to those registered on the day of the meeting by no later than 4:30 P.M.A recent study showed that 94% of recruiters are active on LinkedIn, but only 34% of job seekers are.

Let’s face it, if you want to be found or if you’re looking for a new job, maximizing LinkedIn should be a critical part of your job search strategy. Consider how you might use Google to find something of interest to you. When you receive the list of options, how far down do you go? Do you look at the top 3 listings?

The top 5? You probably rarely go to the second page. That’s exactly the way recruiters use their search capabilities on LinkedIn.

 

In this interactive session, Ken will teach you ways to get noticed and to move yourself to the first page of a search. You will learn how to:

– Build and enhance your personal brand

– Strengthen your profile

– See and be seen in your industry

– Find the right job for you and the people who can help you get it

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.

Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.

Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.

Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.

Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.

Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.

Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.

Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.

Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.

Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.
