Each week, more than 100 job seekers gather for job search training, networking and encourage- ment. We meet from 9:00-11:30 am. First timer? Please read this and plan to arrive by 8:40 am.
How are you doing on each piece of your job search? Let us help you take a quick assessment so you can outline key next steps to move forward in your job search. 
Everyone bring your resume and have your elevator pitch (click here for help) ready on Monday. 

How many networking contacts should I be making each week?

How does my elevator pitch come across?

If I had an interview tomorrow would I be ready?

Is there a reason my resume is not getting more hits?
How about my LinkedIn Profile?

Is there something else distracting me or holding me back from having my most effective and efficient job search?

If any of these questions are nagging at you, then come on Monday morning and take the next step to getting the job you love.

The right words can be magic.

“They can get you in doors you never thought possible,” said Dennis Welch, author, publicist, singer/songwriter, who owns Articulate, a company specializing in PR and Communications.

Welch, a big believer that all things are possible through God, also purports that the right words still matter. “We’ve devalued words at a time when choosing the right ones may be more important than ever.”

In a world where we are inundated with messages and interrupted every 10 minutes, he says you must tell a story in a way that people care. And, there are three questions that matter.

  • What’s the question?
  • Who’s the messenger?
  • Why do I care about it today?

In a succinct manner, ask the question, but make sure it is about who you’re approaching, not yourself. Too many times sales professionals make pitches about “I’ve got this gadget” versus “what are your needs or problems I may solve?”

Explain why YOU matter. What is unique about you that really makes sense for them?

Create urgency and make people take action. Develop a dialogue that starts the conversation, and never put everything you know in one email.
