NMIN Capacity-building Webinar
Wednesday, December 1, 2021
10:00 – 11:30 am (PST) | 1:00 – 2:30 pm (EST)
Remember when you could walk into an employer’s office, hand in your resume and speak to the hiring manager in-person directly? We have been living in a virtual environment for a long time and will only continue to increase our reliance on technology to support the job search.
While unadvertised vacancies, i.e. the “hidden job market”, aren’t as common, good networking practices continue to be critical in order to maximize the number and quality of opportunities that are both discovered and achieved.
The webinar will explore:
Understanding Why, How and When to network strategically.
How to best use practical networking tools including: LinkedIn, social media, conferences, meetings, events or symposiums.
Determining your unique value proposition and making your personal brand work for you.
Building your own personal “board of directors”: how to ask great questions and approach possible mentors.
