Find the Next Great Opportunity in Your Career Journey

dog-black-board2Where I live it’s back-to-school season – an exciting time for sure. You know what else it is? It’s back to job search season. We told you summer is a fantastic time to do job search networking. All those barbeques, golf outings, picnics, pool parties, and the like are simply perfect for making connections. Now is a perfect time to follow-up on those new contacts, and for those who went against our advice and simply shut your search down for the summer, you’ll really want some help to ramp-up your search for the Fall.

With your career development in mind, we have scheduled in September four Master Classes from our Careers and Job Search Series. These Classes are designed to help you find the next great opportunity in your career journey and will present some paths you may not have seriously considered before now.

Here’s what we have lined up for you in September:

There is a right way and wrong way for someone at the executive level to look for a job while still gainfully employed.  In this ExecuNet Master Class session, executive job search expert and career strategist Marsha Muawwad will share strategies and tips for conducting a successful “stealth” search.
