Making an impact in the 2018 job market

 Making an impact on the job market

Even smart business school graduates sometimes make the mistake of believing that job searching is as uncomplicated as opening an online account.

In today’s uncertain economy job openings are harder to identify and looking for a new role requires strategic communication skills mixing social media, direct approaches, and advanced relationship building.

Looking for a new job may seem as straightforward as updating your LinkedIn profile, but in practice it can feel like you’re using the skills candidates use to get elected – gaining key information, influencing, getting noticed, recruiting ambassadors and champions. 

John’s webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Behaviours that slow down or accelerate job searching
  • The complexities of the hidden job market
  • Breaking into new sectors – organised discovery and repackaging transferable skills
  • Why you don’t need to be an extrovert to communicate and influence
  • Being remembered – planting messages and telling energised stories
  • The power of soft networking
