Compete and Succeed: Maximize Your Job Search Self-Marketing
Many experienced, highly-skilled workers of all ages discover barriers as they look for job opportunities in a tight labor market. Too often, employers may make assumptions or have biases that mistakenly screen out some of the best-qualified candidates.
Through a blend of attitude and action, you can overcome those barriers.
This workshop gives you the tools to:
- Develop your “self-marketing” campaign that tells your story most powerfully.
- Conduct employer and networking research that shows how you’re a great fit for the job you want.
- Find ways to update your skills and keep them sharp while you are job searching.
Do you need to submit a cover letter for a position, but aren’t sure where to begin? This workshop will teach you what to include in a cover letter, what an employer is looking for in a letter, how to structure it, and how to present yourself effectively in writing.
Interviewing: Be a STAR at Your Next Interview
Preparing for the interview is critical and will allow you to successfully sell yourself to the employer. Included in this workshop are frameworks for answering difficult questions, strategies for answering important unspoken questions, and telling stories that will help the interviewer remember you long after the interview is over.
