Career Prep Night (Part 2 - January 3rd)
Janet Silverman, FCCNY Parent, has volunteered to return and speak to our young adult members about a variety of topics related to their jobs and future career. Janet has created a 2 phase series and will be developing a professional coaching practice in 2018. Her first phase was delivered and well received over the summer. It included understanding your value proposition, assessing your current professional situation, enhancing your resume, creating a standout LinkedIn and checking your social media footprint. Her second phase includes establishing your network, tackling the job search, creating an action plan, successfully working with recruiting firms, applying to specific opportunities , tailoring our cover letter and managing the job search- it is a lot.
When: Wednesday, January 3rd, at 6:30pm (optional overview of phase 1 starts at 5:30pm)
Since these are such important topics, we are breaking up the session into 3 parts:
1) From 5:30-6:15pm is a recap of phase one.
2) From 6:30-7:20pm we'll start phase 2. We'll then take a pizza break!
3) 7:50 to 8:30pm will conclude phase 2 and have a Q&A session.
Please feel free to join us at 6:30pm if you already attended phase 1.
