Specific Areas We’ll Cover
Each of these topics is or will be covered in more detail in my blog.
1. Creating a Strong Resume
Simply stated: A good resume is one that gets you an interview. Writing your own resume is difficult. It’s not easy to spot your own accomplishments, know how to highlight them and which skills to emphasize.
I’ve written hundreds of resumes and can quickly and effectively present your value on paper. Plus, we don’t have to meet in person – everything can be done by email and phone.
2. Making a Good First Impression
A resume alone will not get you a job. You will. How you present yourself: your dress, body language and what you say – will determine if you’re hired. You have one chance to make a first impression. Getting it right the first time pays off. We’ll review and practice every element of making a good impression.
3. Preparing for your Interview
The most important thing you can do before your interview is to have a clear sense of what you can offer the employer. And then practice until you can confidently explain how you will contribute to the company.
4. Ways to Build Confidence
Self-doubt and self-criticism kill confidence. And confidence is essential to your success. I’ll focus on building your confidence which will directly impact your attitude and demeanor…leading to success.
5. Effective Networking and Using Your Connections
65% – 85% of jobs are found through networking. Considering how important networking is, we’ll discuss and practice every aspect of how to network effectively. We’ll also cover the importance of following-up and using your personal connections – no matter how remote you may think they are.
