Job Search in the Modern Age
An effective job search should incorporate many paths including online postings, search firms / employment agencies and networking. Learn how to effectively utilize these resources and remain productive in your quest for a new role.
A great resume will only yield an invitation to meet a potential employer; the job is won or lost during the interview. Instead of spending the interview merely answering questions, gain a better understanding of how to better understand their needs and discuss how you can contribute to their successes. Additionally, learn how to best answer challenging questions such as gaps in employment, experiences and salary requirements.
Today’s job market is very good for candidates with employers competing to hire the best people available. Many companies expect good candidates to negotiate terms of employment and salary so learn how to best discuss your expectations and preferences.
