Career Search Mastery
Are you looking for jobs online with little to no success? Are you wondering why recruiters aren’t responding to your application?
Did you know that 85% of positions are recruited and filled by word-of-mouth?
Due to overwhelming number of application submission (200 – 1,600 per opening), companies have had to change their hiring practices. In this advanced workshop, we’ll teach you the proven job-seeking techniques that hundreds of our clients have used to quickly find the perfect position.
We will discuss:
- Various recruiting and headhunting techniques local employers use to source candidates
- Best practices on how to apply to an opening that matches your background and interests
- How to leverage your 1st degree connections without burning the bridge
- Proper ways to request and maximize introductions
- Prospecting company recruiters, HR, and decision makers’ contact information
- Proper ways of reaching out to employers
- Identifying routers and super connectors in your industry who can help you
- Leverage the 5-Step Relationship Building Model to build strategic relationships with key people
- How to identify and tap into the hidden job market (unadvertised opportunities)
- Advanced search techniques to find positions you didn’t even know existed
You will benefit by:
- Learning the correct job-seeking methods a prospective employer prefers
- Understanding how to reach and speak to decision makers about an opening so you can further tailor your application
- Discovering how to leverage your own network to connect to decision makers faster
- Building and maintaining a healthy network and exponentially growing your reach through proper forms of introductions and follow-up
- Finding out about job openings your competition doesn’t even know exist
Typical workshop participants are middle to late career professionals-in-transition or self-employed entrepreneurs attracted to cutting edge job search strategies. Their professions are in a wide range such as law and accounting, health care, software engineering, manufacturing, sales and marketing, writing, operations, project management, and general management.
Since May 2009, ProLango has trained more than 10,000 professionals with cutting-edge job search strategies. We are the only local outplacement and career-transition company known for continually learning and sharing strategies that work as opposed to the cookie-cutter career advice found elsewhere.
