Nov 23 Speaker: Speaker Lynette Crane, MA (Author The Confident Introvert)
Topic: Social Confidence Skills
Success doesn’t necessarily go to the smartest, most talented, or skilled, but to the people who know how to connect and engage with other people. People I call “quietly brilliant” (aka introverts) frequently feel challenged or apprehensive about this connection.
In this presentation, you will learn some skills to present yourself powerfully and promote yourself painlessly – without becoming someone you don’t like,.
Dec 14 Speaker – Al & Kris Cotrone (Human Resource Professionals)
Topic - Outreach That Works – To Hello and Beyond
The focus of this workshop will be on how to more effectively reach out and create a network of advocates who will be able (and want) to deliver an interview opportunity when your dream position becomes available at their organization. Everyone understands that networking and outreach is a critical part of your career search, but it can sometimes be really hard to craft the outreach communication that gets you to that place.
We will start with a reboot on the overall career search process so as not to de-emphasize the importance of the self-assessment and targeted resume preparation. The primary emphasis, however, will be the outreach phase of the career search process – we will review some samples of ineffective outreach and will discuss different approaches. We will also do some live editing in small groups of any past or current outreach the attendees have done/are doing.
We will save plenty of time for candid and personal questions as this is a great safe environment to get some good help from your SOAR network!
Attendees are encouraged to bring 3 copies of an outreach communication (e.g., email) they have used or are intending to use in their own job search.
