Creating a Job Search Project Plan
February 4, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 1:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating until May 6, 2021
This webinar is part 2 of the Highly Effective Job Search Plan Series presented by Keith Owens.
If you don’t know where you’re going any road will get you there.
What kind of work are you looking for? Where do you want to work . . . what kinds of organizations? What is it in your background that qualifies you for this type of work?
You must clearly understand and communicate this information in order to have a truly effective job search – one that results in a job that is the type of work you want to do, in an organization you want to work for, and landing in the shortest amount of time.
Before you can effectively network, write a resume, create a LinkedIn profile and interview, you need to be clear on what it is you want to do, where you want to do it, and why someone should hire you. The first place you must be writing all this down is in your job search project plan. Without a plan, you are just wandering around hoping that you run into a good job, or that one runs into you.
A project plan will allow you to be engaged in a highly focused, proactive job search. This workshop will provide you with the outline and steps you need to take to quickly develop such a plan. Topics to be covered include a:
professional objective with clearly defined job functions
positioning statement that states why you can do this type of work
list of core competencies that support your positioning statement
the specific, well-defined target market that is the focus of your search
list of target companies/organizations where you are focusing your search.
