Whether you’ve been job searching for 2 weeks or 2 years, this workshop will help you be more efficient with your time… more capable of creating an order to your job search tactics…  more effective at reaching and marketing yourself to target companies… and more productive with distinguishing yourself in the marketplace. Virtually every job we’ve ever had has required developing a carefully laid out plan on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. And the job search is no different. 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. 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 NSENG, will present his perspectives on the following topics:

  • What a job search plan should contain and the order in which each initiative should be completed
  • How to develop an effective weekly routine
  • Setting job search goals and tracking your progress
  • How to network more effectively
  • Examples of resumes that are and are not effective
  • How to build an ATS-compliant resume
  • How to define your audience and build a target company list with key contacts
  • How to develop a marketing plan that reaches your targets
  • How to create more buzz on LinkedIn

There are over 70 slides to be presented so copies will not be provided. Copies of a few key slides will be distributed so please come prepared to take notes.
