The job search can be a frustrating process. We’re offering two online career workshops by Steve Dalton, renowned expert and author of The 2-Hour Job Search. Attendees will walk away with actionable steps for searching for a job and acing the interview. Attend one workshop for $15 or both for $25.
OCT. 26 | The 2-Hour Job Search
5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (pacific time)
How exactly do you network so that it leads to interviews? In this online workshop, you’ll be offered an exact process–rather than a series of tips–for effectively turning strangers into advocates, leading to more internal referrals and more job interviews, even when career-changing into sectors or regions where you lack any relevant contacts or experience.
This session proposes an efficient alternative to hopelessly applying to online job postings. Attendees will leave the session knowing exactly what they need to do next.
NOV. 3 | Acing the Interview
5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (pacific time)
In this online workshop, you'll be offered a step-by-step breakdown for effectively and quickly solving such challenges as:
- Preparing a resume
- Writing a cover letter
- Answering common interview questions like “Tell me about yourself” or “What is your biggest weakness?”
Attendees of this workshop will leave with a better understanding for which job search tasks matter more than others, as well as a recipe for solving each one, quickly and easily.
