Session 2: Long Term Career Success Strategies
Our first session set the stage for you taking charge of your career. In this session, the presenter will be taking a deeper dive into your resume, interview style and keys strategies to a successful career change. Real-life examples and industry best practices provide the foundation needed for a winning resume. Your resume is one of the most important tools in your professional portfolio and must showcase your accomplishments, leadership skills and ability to meet deliverables. How you format and disseminate this information can be the key to landing your interview - but that is not the only thing companies are looking at. Assessing and correcting your social media information and harnessing the power of LinkedIn are now essential in an era where everyone thinks they are an expert. Finally, we will look at the interview process, the things we look for, and provide you with tips and tricks for garnering that offer. As we conclude this virtual workshop, you will have an outcome-focused action plan to help you prepare, manage and achieve your professional goals.
