It's hard to believe that it's been a year since we launched WIN! About 115 people have attended our biweekly meetings and participated in our workshops. Among the speakers who've presented have been authors, hiring managers, college career counselors and a number of professional career coaches. A wide range of topics have been covered, such as Effective Networking Strategies, Leveraging LinkedIn, Building a Job-Search Toolbox and Improv for the Job search. We hope that participants have taken away something from attending these workshops - made new friends, got some practical tips and learned about the resources at the library!
As the response to the biweekly meetings has been so good, we are offering another meeting time come September. Informal meetings will be held on the first and third Monday of the month from 10:30-11:30 AM. There will be a facilitator at these meetings and this will be a networking opportunity for folks between jobs or those in career transitions. So come and join us for our first Monday meeting on September 16th at 10:30 AM!
The Wednesday meetings continue with a presentation by Greg Page on August 28th. The topic is "Online Identity Optimization for Job Seekers." Greg Page is the CEO and co-founder of Merrimack Analysis Group. His presentation will include the latest about the ways HR Officers are searching for people online, how job candidates can best present themselves, etc. along with information about how to stay safe from identity theft scams that target job seekers.
