June 26, 2015

Two of the most important tools and skills for effective job seeking are networking and informational interviews.


With 80% of jobs being filled by internal referrals, it’s more important than ever to identify your target organizations and build your internal connections. In this session, led by Career Advisor Cathy Gibbons, you’ll learn how to develop a strategy to position yourself for your target jobs and organizations even before they announce the openings. We will review resources for finding connections where you have none and for developing and leveraging those connections to land the job you want.
