4 Hours That Can Change Your Life

In May, the ExecuNet stage was the place to be for insightful Master Classes by some of the brightest minds in career management, job search, business and leadership development. Our community was treated to insights on hiring true team playersleaving corporate America for your own businessthe hidden variable driving all individual and organizational performance, and how to negotiate your next compensation package to maximum gain. The sessions were led by Patrick Lencioni, Stephen M.R. Covey, Pete Gilfillan, and Don Weintraub, and I assure you our members were thrilled with what they delivered. My favorite member comment was:

“This is not taught in business school but it can make a positive impact on the bottom line!”

There is No Vacation in Job Search

Session Leader: Don Weintraub, Managing Director of ExecuNet’s Career Services Group

Don WeintraubThe temptations are there – time off with the family, a little golf, a walk on the beach. Taking the summer off from your job search and getting back into it when the “kids go back to school” would be very easy. It would also be a huge mistake. Summer is not the time to give up on your job search—leave that to your competition.

In this session of ExecuNet Master Class, Don Weintraub will show you how to succeed in your search when the mercury rises. Value proposition, personal marketing collateral, networking, interviewing – Don can show you how to reel-in the position you want!
