Most of the advice we hear about finding work was already twenty years out of date when we first heard it decades ago. Today, searching for a job requires a completely different way of thinking.
This program covers huge mistakes you’re probably making—and how to fix them!
Perhaps the most serious problem is that too many of us think about jobs as something employers need filled. But in an era where virtually every company is looking employees with skills and education, it’s not about filling a job but about solving a problem. We need to think of ourselves not as jobseekers, but as people finding challenges and bringing solutions.
In this presentation we’ll cover:
- What used to be the right way to find a job and why it’s no longer a valid approach
- How the economy and society have changed and how to adapt
- Expressing your own personality in the process while still being able to add value within the structure of a workplace
