Topic: The Perfect Storm: Charting a Pandemic-Proof Job Search

Learning Lessons:   Searching for a great job is trying at any time, and COVID-related unemployment rates ranging from 6% to 15% have only made matters worse. And if you’re a senior-level executive in a first-to-layoff field like customer support or marketing, the recent job market looked like the perfect storm. But with patience and hard work, you can chart a course to a great job in any economy. Using personal stories as a guide, this webinar will help you develop a plan, and use new (and old) tools to land your next position.  And here are the learning lessons:

     * Develop a mindset and a metaphor that lead to job-search success

     * Pursue proven long- and short-range networking strategies

     * Employ profile documents, video thank you, and other new tools to get an edge
