Job Seekers Network on the Peninsula Message Board › New Meetup: Advice from a career coach
|A former member||
Sharon Staley and Marc Miller have arranged for a real treat for December 9th. Based on all of the great feedback you gave us about what you want to see, we've focused on building something unique; a grand finale for the year. We've worked with the President of Northern California Human Capital Services, Al Chiara, to come up with a unique presentation about the top topics that concern you in your job search.
This will be our last meeting of 2010, and it's the perfect time to realign your job search strategy as we approach the holiday season. December is a time both for end-of-year blitz hiring and yet also for vacations and holiday shutdowns (and therefore a time to get organized for 2011). Let's make one last stab at helping you get a new job this year, and failing that, use the quieter, last two weeks of December to prepare for a fresh, organized, and strategic start to 2011.

Who: Al Chiara, President of Northern California Human Capital Services (a career coaching firm)
