“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.

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 most likely get a job offer!

Without compelling Accomplishment Stories, you have very little chance of acing the interview and getting the offer. Join us for this highly-interactive and practical “working session,” to develop your own Accomplishment Stories!

People are researching you! Do you know what they’re finding? More often than not, they’re checking-out your LinkedIn profile – which is your first impression and digital introduction to employers and recruiters. Does your LinkedIn profile showcase your skills and “sell you” as a polished professional?

You already know that LinkedIn plays a huge role in job search. You undoubtedly have received invitations from business contacts to connect on LinkedIn. And you probably took a few hours out of your busy life to create a LinkedIn profile. Perhaps you even sent-out some invitations for people to connect with you. Now you’re asking yourself, “Is that all there is?” and “How can I get more value and results out of LinkedIn?”

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 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 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.”

But when employers perceive you as an expert and discover your credibility “on their own,” they’ll tend to feel “pulled” toward you and even pursue you. This is the primary benefit of “Pull 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.

This is a very practical, "real world" seminar that has always been one of our most popular programs! Invest a few hours in this event, and make a “quantum leap” in your salary. Join us to master the rules of the salary negotiation game – a game that can actually be fun, as well as financially rewarding!

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.
