In recent weeks, we took deep dives into using online social networking and other resources to market ourselves, research, and lure employers and recruiters. This week, we will explore using the The San Francisco Business Times in our job search.
What’s that I hear? “A newspaper? How last century.” In fact, it’s one of the most powerful tools at your disposal here in the Bay Area.
Judson Walsh will re-introduce us to the Times as a job hunt resource, explain the sections of the newspaper, and demonstrate with a newspaper in hand how we can look beyond the newspaper print to the world of possibilities behind every business transaction. We will learn:
- How hiring really happens
- Techniques for identifying companies that are hiring
- How to tap into the hidden job market
- How critical networking is for landing a job
