Networking is the key to a successful job search! In this session, we will focus on techniques to build your network, engage professionals in your field to assist with job search and connect with decision-makers.
June 9, Session 3: Effective Communication: Storytelling, Conversation and Writing
Storytelling is one of the most effective ways to convey your effectiveness as a professional. In this session, we will learn how to craft 1-minute “CAR” stories for networking and interviews, as well as how to improve upon your conversation and writing skills for networking and interviews.
June 16, Session 4: Understanding the Application Process
Only 20% of online applications are ever read by a human. That’s because robots, or applicant tracking systems (ATS) are screening your application documents for keywords and formatting.

Half seminar and half mock interview session, we will conclude the boot camp series with some hands-on practice in interviewing as well as tackle tough interview questions and negotiation techniques. Bring your resume and a copy of a desired job posting/description.
