Whether you’re looking for a new job, moving up and around in your organization, or seeking your first post-graduation position, the search can be difficult, especially now when the job search continues to change and move increasingly online. The old days of walking around and handing out resumes are gone. Employers are now looking for you online even when you aren’t looking for them, asking people they know for referrals, and looking for candidates who package themselves well. In addition, the top skills employers are looking for are actually soft skills, but how do you demonstrate those online? Once you finally make it to the interview, you also want to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward when they inevitably 'search' you. In this rapid-fire workshop, Bailey Parnell will cover the Top 5 tips you should know for improving your online presence as you start or continue the job search.
