"Career Talks ….. The POWER of being prepared for Job Search!"


YES, our business environment is constantly changing. Don’t be caught unprepared.  Career planning is a necessary, on-going, evolving activity. A job search strategy plays a key role in successfully moving you along your career path.

Are you currently looking for YOUR dream job? Would you like to learn how to create and deliver YOUR value proposition statement (elevator pitch) confidently?  Would you like to learn some tips and techniques, which are effective for working with clients, and during job search?

Please join us for an interactive job search overview.  It will re-energize you to go forward with POWER and an inspired strategy, a strong preparation approach, a plan, and enhanced confidence and determination.

The experience will provide insights on various related topics, useful tips, practical approaches, networking, and practice sessions.  

Please feel free to bring your resume with you for your personal use.  We will not be focusing on resumes (only on the fact that one is needed for job search).

The workshop will:

  •  Focus on how to prepare for job search and move forward

  •  Provide a framework for an integrated job search plan

  •  Help you re-energize your “inner power”

Strengthen your relationship building and networking techniques.
