North Coast Job Seekers Meeting

Presentation:  "Resumes: Current Trends"

Speaker:  Katherine Burik

Katherine Burik is the founder and owner of The Interview Doctor, helping candidates and employers navigate the job search with a plan, interview coaching, and tools to help people tell their stories and make a great match.

 

Job search is tough under any circumstances, whether you are the hiring manager or a candidate. You need a combination of inner strength, good skills, and the strategic ability to know what you want and why you should have it. Being pretty good is not good enough.

 

It is essential to start with the right tools: Career Coaching, Resumes, and LinkedIn.  You need to be strategic with a job search. It is “More than a Resume.”  You must tie your resume to LinkedIn for effective job search.  Then you can create a job search or career marketing plan to grow your career.  Using Linked In and networking, you can turn job ads into networking experiences so your search is more than sending off a resume to a black hole.  But having that well-crafted resume is essential, and what worked a decade ago won't necessarily work in today's job market.  In this presentation we will explore current trends in resumes and offer practical tips and strategies to best position your resume in front of hiring managers.

 

We look forward to welcoming Katherine to North Coast Job Seekers and learning from her experience.  Her LinkedIn profile can be found at Katherine Burik.

NETWORKING AND JOB SEARCH ISSUES

 

Job seekers are invited to join with other NCJS members and leaders for constructive networking, job search troubleshooting, sharing what's going well and what is not, and collaborating on job leads.

Networking is part of "Job Search 101," yet many job seekers lack the actual network of "people with connections" during a time of job transition. Networking is one of the cornerstones of North Coast Job Seekers and we are very intentional about providing face-to-face time to explore connections, be introduced to new contacts, discover new opportunities, and share the people resources that YOU have to help another job seeker.  Join with other NCJS members for this face-to-face time of constructive networking, job leads, and issue sharing.

Program:  "You're Invited!  A Primer for Mixing Job Seeking and Party Mingling"

Hosted by the NCJS Leadership Team

You’re Invited! A Primer for Mixing Job Seeking and Party Mingling


It’s a recurring nightmare:  You’re at the Holiday party trying to balance a drink and a plate of tasty hors d’oevres when you realize the person you’ve been angling to meet for 2 months is headed straight for you.  You break into a sweat as you realize there’s no place to put the glass or the plate and your mouth is full and Mr. Right is barreling toward you.  And then you hear yourself open your mouth and try to gobblety-speak...  You snap straight up in bed, swearing you’ll get this figured out BEFORE the next party.


Join NCJS for a dress rehearsal Holiday party replete with appetizers and glasses to practice where to put what, safe mingling techniques, and tips for working in your elevator speech, because this is, after all, yet another opportunity for networking.
