Job Search Boot Camp Day 2

December 9, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

CareerPlace realizes there is a growing demand by those who are currently employed and interested in making a job change but are unable to attend our weekly daytime workshops. In response to this growing need, we are pleased to announce our new program Job Search Boot Camp.

This two-part workshop will be offered on Saturday, December 2, 2017 and Saturday, December 9, 2017. Our goal is to repeat the program every 4-6 weeks.

The agenda is as follows:

Week 1:

  • 8:30am-10:30am – StrengthFinders
  • 10:30am-12:30pm – Creating a Job Search Project Plan
  • 12:30pm to 1:00pm – Lunch break
  • 1:00pm to 3:00pm – Network to Success

Week 2:

  • 8:30am-10:30am – Resume
  • 10:30am-12:30pm – LinkedIn
  • 12:30 to 1:00 pm – Lunch break
  • 1:00pm-3:30pm – Interview Skills

Enrollees are asked to purchase and read Orville Pierson’s, “Unwritten Rules of the Highly Effective Job Search” and after enrolling, complete the online StrengthFinders’ assessment. A link and code will be emailed prior to the start of the Boot Camp. They will also be given assignments to complete in between sessions. Such as writing a SAR (Situation, Action, Results) story, an Elevator Speech, and a Value Statement.

The cost of this 2-part workshop is $100 and this fee would be credited towards our annual $200 daytime program that includes one-on-one personal coaching.  The coaching could be done via phone, Saturdays, or early evenings, depending upon the availability of the coach.
