Meeting Topic:

How to Master the Art of Professional Networking During Your Job Search!

One of the keys to managing your career effectively is to build and maintain a strong and varied network. Every job seeker - and even those who are currently employed - should carve time out of their busy schedules to expands their contacts. Networking is more important than a resume, your network is your most valuable career asset! You'll learn how to cultivate this often-overlooked and underdeveloped resource into a positive and dynamic tool to create long-term career success. Every networking encounter will now be treated like a business meeting, complete with a purpose, agenda and specific outcomes. By leveraging your network in the proper way, you will get the jobs you want through people and relationships! You'll look at your friends, fellow alumni, former co-workers, teachers, family members, even your auto mechanic and dry cleaner in a whole new light after John's enlightening presentation on: "How to Master the Art of Professional Networking!"

The presentation will be followed by 90 minutes of structured networking introductions for executives and professionals in career transition.
