2 Hour Job Search

Tuesday, September 3, 2013 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Alfred Lerner Hall, Atrium Alfred Lerner Hall, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716, USA

Hosted by author Steve Dalton, this workshop will help anyone in a job search by offering tangible, effective strategies on landing that sought after interview. Online job postings have fundamentally changed the job search. Hiring managers increasingly rely on referrals to avoid reviewing hundreds of resumes per posting. However, job seekers find the convenience of online postings irresistible, pouring countless hours into an inherently ineffective approach. Instead of providing laundry lists of tips without regard to how long each one takes to implement, the 2-Hour Job Search provides step-by-step, time-limited instructions for the vaguest and most difficult part of the job search: getting that first interview.

This research-based process splits the post-campus job search into its three main components: prioritization, outreach, and informational interviewing, and helps job seekers get underway: quickly, efficiently, and effectively.
