“You are an effective and engaging communicator, and it's a pleasure to attend your seminars. Your advice is so to-the-point and substantive. It's not just the vague ideas or simplistic job-hunting principles I've heard from other career speakers. It's real, hands-on tactics and proven strategies I can put to use right now, complete with step-by-step guidance. Thank you!”

The Job Seeker’s Toolkit Seminar

A carpenter would never show-up at a construction site with only a hammer. A graphic artist would never interview for a design position without showing a complete portfolio. So why is it that most job seekers use only their resume as the cornerstone of their search?

Job seekers over-emphasize the resume because their other “tools” are weak or nonexistent. But the resume should actually be one of your least used job-seeking tools! Unfortunately, most people don’t know what these other tools are or how to use them.

The Power of “Pull Marketing” in Your Job Search

When searching for a new job, would you rather “chase after employers,” or have employers “chasing after you?” The choice is YOURS, and you CAN conduct your job search in such a way that employers will take the first step by reaching out to you.

Traditional job search methods include sending-out resumes, applying for jobs online, attending job fairs, contacting employers and recruiters, and of course – networking. All of these tasks, collectively, fall under the heading “Push Marketing.” This is because you’re “pushing” your message, hoping that someone will take notice. Even if you do make contact, however, you’ll still have to “convince” the employer of your worthiness. This is the downside of “Push Marketing.”

Salary Negotiation: The Rules of the Game

Why is it that people have such a difficult time successfully negotiating their compensation?

The reason we can’t or won’t negotiate is not because we’re incapable of doing so, but rather because we just don’t know how! No one ever taught us "the rules of the game!" For the purposes of this presentation, we look at negotiation as a game. And as with any game, we can’t win if we don’t know the rules.

Accomplishment Stories: Your Most Powerful Tool to Get the Job Offer

Remember a time when you heard a friend or colleague tell a memorable story? You can probably still recall some of the details about that story long after it was shared. Good storytelling creates a vivid picture and a positive response in the listener’s mind. Utilizing stories to enhance your job search is a skill that is often overlooked. Yet, without powerful accomplishment stories to tell prospective employers, you have almost nothing to “sell.” When you can effectively tie your accomplishment stories directly to the employer’s needs and problems, you will dramatically increase your chances of getting a job offer.

Many of us feel that the stories about our work-life are not particularly interesting. Others struggle to come-up with any accomplishment stories at all. This seminar will show you exactly how to identify and develop your own compelling accomplishment stories – stories that will become your most powerful “selling tools.”

Do you ever feel like you’ve lost touch with the enthusiasm and passion you once felt about your career?

Remember when you were just starting-out at your first job, or you were a recent graduate? You probably thought you’d be able to get all sorts of jobs; and that every employer would want to hire you. You were excited about your prospects and believed that you had something wonderful to share.

But now that you’ve been in the work-world for quite a while, and have had a series of jobs with several different companies, have you become cynical or resigned in your work-attitude? Are you unsure as to which direction to turn next?
