Professional Networking Group-Developing Resources (session 3)

February 10, 2016
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Mesa Arizona Employment Resource Center

The average job seeker spends fewer than 6 hours per week looking for work. Those few hours were spent searching job postings on the Internet, filling out job applications online, and sending in resumes without any personal engagement. That kind of effort is not typically effective and leads to greater discouragement, feelings of isolation, and frustration.  The 15-10-2 approach will help you focus on the most productive and efficient job searching, networking, and contacting that will ultimately get you the job you want. With this approach, finding a full-time job becomes your exciting full-time job until you land a great position. 

This workshop is one of our series of networking events where you will learn about how to find people to contact and a proven success for successful job acquisition.

Learn and apply networking skills to enable you to build beneficial relationships. This workshop is usually held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. Different skills will be taught and practiced at each workshop.
