Business & Technology
Whether you’re gainfully employed and trying to muster up the energy to turn your career around or you’re spending every waking hour perusing job sites for the next best thing, job seeking is – hands down – the opposite of fun. You’ve had all the resume help you can get, you scour listings like it’s your, well, job. And still, why does it feel like you are talking into the wind?
In this class, Dabblers will learn basic, but often unknown or under-estimated, job search tactics to help you get from resume to interview and avoid that proverbial black hole that seems to be the graveyard for resumes.
Topics covered will include:
- Resume basics
- Searching and identifying jobs and companies
- Targeting and contacting hiring managers
- Cover letters and email communication
