Still not convinced? Read what Career Coach Katelin Wood has to say about the Career Boot Camp:
“Career Boot Camp will give you the strategies to job-search better, faster, and stronger. We’ll play games, there’ll be food and prizes, and you’ll get tips on how to tap into the hidden job market,” says Wood. “80 percent of jobs are never posted!”
Also on hand will be Career Coach Shannan Laing, who will conduct an advanced approach to job seeking. She adds that participants will get to learn how to work smarter and faster so that they can land interviews. “The workshop is based on the book ‘The 2-Hour Job Search’, by Steve Dalton. It’s an opportunity to think outside the box when it comes to applying for jobs strategically and efficiently by using tools such as Excel, Google and LinkedIn to target potential employers,” she says. “Over the three days, we will discuss ways that you can prioritize ‘target’ employers, how to contact employers and recruit advocates to provide support and internal referrals. This process will help you develop an organized and focused job search plan, resulting in more interviews.”
