SOAR to New Heights: Proclaiming Your Career Accomplishments in the New Year

Career counselors often tell clients: "If you don't market yourself, no one else will."  The SOAR system (Situation, Obstacles, Action and Results) helps you to think about and articulate your accomplishments.  What was the problem? What did you need to overcome? What did you do?  What was the result?  SOAR statements can help you write a great resume and make a strong impression at an interview.  You can also use it to make yourself more effective at networking events.  When you do land the job, keeping track of your SOAR accomplishments during the year can lead to an excellent year end review.  This seminar will demonstrate specific situations where SOAR statements can elevate you to the next level.
