Activate Your Network

Conversation with


If you're like me, you have nearly twenty years of experience and contacts in your field. When searching for your next career move, it is critical to activate your network and get them working for you.

In my job search, I have relied upon a number of methods to utilize my relationships. From documenting every interaction to follow up, it is helpful to methodically and tactically track your progress. In this session, we will talk about using current technologies and strategies from Google Keep to LinkedIn and various job boards.

Your network is one of the most powerful tools you have. Make sure it is working as hard and strategically as you are.
