Job Search Strategies (Part 1)

When: 21 July 2022, 3:30pm -- 5pm
Location:Online Webinar


Finding a job in today’s hyper competitive and volatile job market can be an uphill battle. Traditional methods that job seekers were coached to use are no longer sufficient to suit the realities of today. Do you know:
- 75% of resumes are rejected before reaching the hiring manager
- 77% of recruiters rely on LinkedIn
- 54% of employers have rejected candidates based on their social media profiles
- Only 5% out of hundreds actually earn a face-to-face interview

This workshop recognises the limitations of those methods widely taught in career books and websites, and is determined to supply you with unconventional yet practical methods, from developing a structured job search strategy, to the interview tips that can land you your dream job.
