Do You Need A Kick In The Ass - What Is Your Career Plan?
If your job search consists solely of languishing on the couch hitting the “Apply Now” button, then you definitely need a kick in the ass. If you still believe in the philosophy of employer loyalty and having a job for life, then you need a kick in the ass.
Good career management means having a defined career plan and taking the necessary steps to execute that plan. Participants will walk away from this presentation charged with ideas to create a career plan, be prepared if the pink slip arrives, and take action using latest resume and job search trends to obtain the job they have always wanted.
I’m on LinkedIn But Feel Left Out
Just “being” on LinkedIn isn’t enough. I often see people who floundered when setting up their LinkedIn account; they didn’t know what to put so they stopped engaging on the platform. Many even have long forgotten duplicate accounts. Your online profile should be as compelling as your resume, strongly market your unique differentiators, and boost your professional credibility through knowledge sharing and impactful recommendations.
Martin will enlighten the audience with numerous ways to portray your career strengths and achievements to the world on the premiere site used by corporate decision makers and executive recruiters to source talent.
Is Your Job Search Generating Analogue Results in a Digital World?
Digital, or e-recruitment, isn’t going away. What has become obsolete, or at least significantly reduced, is the reliance upon advertising jobs using print publications and traditional job boards. Almost every company and recruitment firm have redefined their hiring practices, maximizing their ROI and calibre of hire using online strategies. Jobs posted on the Internet are now viewed by a global audience resulting in a massive increase in applicants per job. So, how you do stand out from the competition? Martin will share with attendees how to conduct a job search using latest technologies and advanced resume strategies that deliver results.
