Bestselling author Jill Konrath to hold free webinar to help job seekers get back to work faster.
St. Paul, Minnesota, July 14, 2009 - Jill Konrath, author of the upcoming book Get Back to Work Faster, will be giving a free webinar about helping job seekers find work into today's challenging business environment on Thursday, July 23, 2009 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT.
"Right now, there aren't enough available positions for all the people looking for work. But that doesn't mean you can't get hired! Companies still have needs. In fact, they have more than before because they're running so lean-and-mean," said Konrath. "I've been teaching people effective strategies to get the attention of decision makers for years. If you want to be proactive about finding your next job instead of just waiting around for someone to like your resume, you will want to attend this webinar.
In the webinar, job seekers will learn:
- Why traditional job hunting strategies are hopelessly ineffective in today's crazy business climate
- How to articulate their value in an employer-enticing manner
- Strategies to target and research prospective employers – who may not even be looking to hire somebody
- How to connect with these companies with "messages that cannot be ignored"
- What it takes to create a job out of thin air – and why this is an approach job seekers should strongly consider
This webinar, "Creating Opportunities: Using Get Back to Work Faster Strategies," is the first in a series hosted by Konrath through the GetBackToWorkFaster.com website. The Get Back to Work Faster webinar series will also include sessions by authors such as Keith Ferrazzi, Pamela Slim, Dan Schawbel, Faith Ralston and Jason Alba.
Sponsored by Citrix GoToMeeting, the webinars will be offered free to the first 1000 job seekers to register.
