Job Search Strategies for Alumni: Finding Employment in a Slightly Improved Market

Are you getting ready to launch your job search?  Have you been looking for a while but are getting discouraged about not finding a job?  In better times, it might have been possible to use only one or two job search methods to land a position, but today, even with the employment forecast brightening, it is still necessary to employ every job search strategy at your disposal.  In this three part series (April 27, May 11, and May 25), career professionals from the Center for Career Education will help you to launch or jump start your job search. You will also have the opportunity to share tips and insights about the job search process with other Columbia alumni. While it is recommended that you attend all three workshops, it is not a requirement.

Session One: Wednesday, April 27 - 6:00-7:30
Center for Career Education Conference Room

Getting Ready: Learn how to create your own job search plan which starts with an evaluation of your own skills and strengths and how they relate to the fields that you're targeting.  In addition, we will work on "Elevator Pitches" and learn how to create the best possible resumes, CV's, cover letters and job applications.
