Will bias, stereotyping, prejudice or discrimination regarding your age, race, ethnicity, gender, pregnancy status, disability, politics or religion wreck your job search?

How about unexplained career gaps in your resume, your job-hopping history or long-term employment with the same organization?

It can be extremely frustrating when you’re dedicated to a job search and it seems like circumstances beyond your control are against you. But there are approaches you can take to influence many important components within your control and get the interviews and offers you deserve.

Listen to this special, Panel Discussion edition of ExecuNet Master Class featuring three widely respected Career Strategists and Coaches to learn easy-to-deploy strategies for overcoming the biases, -isms, and gaps in your way and successfully competing against other candidates in today’s executive job market.
