About this Event:

The POWER of Specificity in Job Search 

You’ve heard of “spray and pray” job search, and have probably been told to avoid it. That’s great advice. If you want to increase your chances of finding your next job in less time, you need to be specific about what you want.

Specificity will help you narrow in on a job target you can hit, instead of shooting blind. And specificity helps others help you. When people want to help you, and when you want them to help you, you need a better answer to “what kind of job are you looking for?” than “I’ll do anything.” Because, honestly, you probably won’t do anything.

Why Attend:

I’ll teach you how to be specific about what kind of work you want to do, and how to use that specificity to power your job search. Using my approach, my clients have landed jobs doing work they really want to do, even during the height of the great recession. I’m eager to share these tools and techniques with job seekers, to help you find your “right fit” job.
