“Creating & Implementing an Effective Job Search Plan”
Speaker:  Marty Gilbert, NSENG Founder/CEO & Job Search Coach

Whether you’re getting ready to graduate from college or have been in the workforce for 5 years, this workshop is geared toward individuals who are early in their careers. This session will help you be more efficient with your time… more effective with your branding… more capable of building out a robust target company list… more adept at reaching your target audience… and, overall, more productive with your job search efforts.

Too many job seekers jump right into their search without having defined their plan of attack and it often results in a lot of unproductive time, unfocused efforts and longer time frames to land an appropriate position. Additionally, many people end up focusing their time answering online ads where your odds are officially 250 to 1. An effective job search requires a tactical routine, a prioritization process, a well-defined order of specific tasks, a targeted marketing program and a measurement criterion to help ensure that you’re optimizing your time and able to track your progress. This workshop will identify the framework and action plan that job seekers should undertake in order to develop and implement a tactical plan that maximizes your efforts, engages your audience, communicates your value and generates interviews over a shorter period of time.       

During this instructional session, MARTY GILBERT, job search coach and founder of Chicago’s largest job search networking group (NSENG), will present his perspectives on the following topics:

  • What a job search plan should contain and the order of initiatives
  • How to write your brand and value proposition
  • Resume and LinkedIn profile advice
  • How to define your audience and build a target company list with key contacts 
  • How to build a marketing plan that reaches your targets
  • How to create more buzz on LinkedIn
  • How to network more effectively
  • How to develop an effective weekly routine
  • Setting job search goals and tracking your progress

There will be just a few handouts of key slides so please be prepared to take notes.
