If you’ve been struggling to find gainful employment during this pandemic, I’ve just added an additional free resource that may help: a free training session via Zoom to help you sharpen your job search strategies! Let me share how this came about.
Ever since this pandemic hit, I’ve been looking for ways to be of service to those who have been affected by it job-wise. So many people became unemployed as a result of the lockdowns and the resulting hit to the economy. A couple of months later, we saw a crop of college students who had to graduate “virtually” and now find themselves struggling to land their first job in the midst of this crisis.
For myself, I’ve gone completely “remote” with my career coaching sessions, and I confer with all my clients by phone or by Zoom. Videoconferencing has actually proven to be a lifeline for many of us during these difficult times, whether we’re conducting business, attending job interviews or just connecting with family and friends. This “new reality” gave me the idea: Since we can’t do the training in person right now, why not use this medium as a resource to help people who need a boost with their job search? And why not give them relevant information they can use right now, in this year and in this economy, to improve their chances for getting hired?
The Zoom training is open to anyone, but it’s specifically designed to help those who have been recently unemployed, as well as recent college grads who might be floundering in their attempt to get hired right now. The session is free with no obligation—you just have to sign up for an open time slot. (For efficiency’s sake, I’ve set a limit on the number of people per session so we can keep the conversation going.)
What the Free Training Covers
The Zoom training session is designed to help you sharpen your skills in four key areas for a successful job search in 2020. The four keys are:
- A powerful resume—one that gets a second look, rather than overlooked.
- A compelling LinkedIn profile—learn how to use this critical platform to your best advantage.
- Honed networking skills—yes, you can still network in quarantine, and I’ll tell you how.
- A solid interviewing strategy—not just how to conduct yourself, but how to present yourself online since most interviews are happening virtually right now.
Sound like something that could help you? Just shoot me an email letting me know you’re interested, and I’ll send you a schedule so you can register for the next available time slot.
Don’t Forget These Other Free Resources…
Just as a reminder, as my schedule allows, I’m also still offering free individual coaching services for people who have been laid off due to the pandemic. (Email me for details.) And don’t forget my free webinar, “Land the Job You Want,” which you can access at any time by clicking here.
Remember, we’re all in this together. If I can be of help in any way with your job search or career change, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s chat.
