Finding a Fit Not Just a Job – Theresa Hummel-Krallinger – By understanding your own preferences and then comparing them to the culture of employers you are more likely to find a fit. Theresa will help you identify your primary behavior style, determine the culture of an organization and help you determine whether you are a fit and how you can adapt your style.
5 Social Media Must Do’s to Turbocharge Your Job Search – Matt Levy – Come invest in yourself by learning from Matt during this interactive presentation on how to stand out from the crowd by using social media tools such as LinkedIn, Twitter, blogging, email marketing and YouTube so that corporate recruiters, headhunters, hiring managers and potential clients will be attracted to you, will find you, will call you and ultimately hire you!
Networking over lunch with fellow participants and speakers
Question and Answer Session with our Panel of Experts – Theresa, Matt, Alex, and Amy
Interview Like a Pro – Alex Freund – All of the networking, working with recruiters and answering job ads is worthless unless you are called in for an interview. How many people understand the interview process and what is important for the interviewer? We will discuss the art of interviewing, preparing for interviews, questions to ask, etc.
The Value of Connecting – Amy Dinning – I have my job search toolkit ready now what do I do? Forging connections and relationships is my next step to mutually benefit both of us whether for job search or just for life. Let’s talk about the value of connecting, how to connect, where to connect and get started in forming relationships where we can help each other.
