It's natural to feel intimidated or hesitant when you are networking, interviewing and navigating your job search. Our featured speaker - a career coach and CEO - will review two major topics: networking and interviewing. First, we’ll cover how to gain comfort with networking and then share practical tools to find the right connections, properly reach out and strategically run informational calls. We’ll move to discuss interviewing, including how to effectively prepare and practice, so you can clearly and comprehensively represent your fit for job opportunities. The presentation will take about 30 minutes, leaving the remainder of the hour for your questions.
