Please join Ed Samuel, Career Coach with SamNova, Inc. (www.samnovainc.com) to learn how cold calling if done well can help you land the next interview and job. There are many myths about cold calling, and you will be surprised at how effective it can be given the right preparation. Although Ed will not use the word “easy” he will share the Dos and Don’ts of making cold calls and how you can incorporate them into your job search strategy. He will share many real-life success stories by people who made the call that then made all the difference in their careers. Ed has made 5000+ cold calls himself and knows this territory all too well. Learn why 40% of the SamNova, Inc. clients have landed jobs using this method over the last 15 years.

– Learn the foundational elements of work needed before you pick up the phone
– Discover why tracking your progress is pivotal
