Claire Petrie, BS ’14, works with a lot of candidates that feel they’ve hit a dead end with their job search.

In this webinar, we’ll review helpful tips to get the most out of your search.

Topics will include:

  • Resumes. Learn what you NEED to focus on to stand out, common mistakes and what recruiters look for.
  • Automated searches. Automate aspects of your search to do the work for you.
  • LinkedIn. Using LinkedIn in your search and why you should always have an active profile (not just when you’re job searching!).
  • Networking and personal brand. Doing this right means you’ll never search for your next role because it’ll come to you.
