9:00 AM – 10:30 AM        Informational Interviews          Click here to register

Want to really find out about a career field or job? The informational interview is a highly effective way of gaining insight into your career interests! Here you will learn what an informational interview is, how to conduct them, and how they can help you network to gain a job. Only 20% of open jobs are listed in online job search engines (indeed, monster, careerbuilder). Informational interviews can help you gain access to the 80% of jobs not advertised. This is a must workshop for those wanting to accelerate their job search.

 

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM        Job Search Strategies         Click here to register

Create a plan for your job search. In this session you will plan your job search, schedule your week to be more effective, develop your own “elevator speech” and learn how to effectively utilize your job search network through using internet and networking skills. You will learn to use the computer to investigate and become familiar with the different types of on-line job boards. In this workshop, you will also discover how to access the “hidden job market”. We’ll show you how to find jobs which are not online or in the newspaper. Job search engines only constitute 20% of the total jobs out there…we’ll show you how to find the hidden 80%! The more you know about job searching, the faster you will find employment!!
