How to Develop Successful Job Search Strategies

Register to attend the job fair and workshops to get the Zoom link.

Having a plan with multiple job search methods will help you find positions faster if you are currently in a career transition. Preparation is key. Lynne Williams will share a list of strategies, tactics, and career resources to help you reach your goal, but will focus on a few essential strategies in depth – keywords, ATS, LinkedIn database, Word Clouds, and portfolio presentation. If you are currently employed, it’s always better to be proactive than reactive, so engage in career management so you are always prepared.

By attending this session, you will:

  • Have some job search strategies, tactics, and career resources including some from the hidden job market

  • Know how to research your best keywords for both your resume and LinkedIn

  • Know how to take your base resume and customize to match keywords in a job description before applying through the ATS

  • Be able to prepare a portfolio presentation to differentiate yourself from others at a job interview
