Choose to Lead—Advice, Tools, and Strategies for Women from Women

“The only way to get ahead and stay ahead in this challenging job market is to constantly distinguish yourself from the competition by demonstrating great performance and maintaining highly marketable skills.”

LOOKING FOR A JOB IN A TOUGH ECONOMY
If you have been looking for a job over 30 days with no results it may be time to do something different! The key to finding and keeping work in tough times is the same as in good times: take action. Economic uncertainties and fluctuations make it especially important for job seekers to learn how to conduct an effective search and to be actively engaged in the process. If you are looking for an internship or a full time position, you must be proactive. Everybody needs help! That’s where the Job Search Work Team can help.

What is a Job Search Work Team?
A job search work team is:
•           a group of people committed to helping each other in job search by keeping each other focused on key tasks and accountable for getting them done.
•           an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can provide good answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.
•           an opportunity for job hunters to share information and information sources, so everyone gets smarter about the job market.
•           a core network for its members.
•           a project management team.
•           a way to make the sometimes difficult job of job hunting easier and more pleasant.

You are invited to attend the next Job Work Search Team meeting, Tuesday, at 8 pm central. We will discuss each other's job search experiences and plans, answer each other's questions and give each other encouragement. We can exchange information about employers and the experiences we have had with job fairs, conventions, trade shows and interviews. Feel free to discuss what you have accomplished on your job search during the previous week and your goals for the upcoming week.
