The San Francisco Business Times–Getting you back to work!

  • May 14, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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

    This was fantastic. Just when I think I have my arms around the available job search resources, a whole new universe appears. Kudos to Judson for his knowledge, enthusiasm, and skills!

    This was an excellent presentation by Jud Walsh of take aways were many...

    ...definitely subscribe to the paper, and get the Book of Lists 2013/2014 for info on top companies...
    ...the CLIST idea summarized his entire talk really well: L=Location of company +/- 30 miles from where you live, I=Industry(ies) you want to focus on, S=Size of Company, T=Type of Co. (For Profit or Non-Profit), C=Culture of a workplace, and it is the most important.
    ...get on SFBT Online, and search using keywords
    ...SFBT Reporters, about a dozen of them, categorized by industry, follow them on Twitter, connect with them on Linked In, read their articles
    ...a very good description of the layout of the SFBT newspaper.

    Have not been to many SF-PCN meetups, but today's meeting gets an A+ for quality and a big thank you to all !!!

    An excellent conversation, and I, too, left a subscriber of the Business Times. The best aspect was Jud's going through the publication and pointing out where and how to glean key relevant points from it. Jud is on the front lines of supporting job seekers with the tools and knowledge to seek skillfully and well, and I appreciate his generosity.

    I felt like I got a lot of good ideas to beef up and, frankly, largely redirect my job search approach. And I left a "Business Times" subscriber.

    I won't be able to attend after all. Would really appreciate someone posting what I'm sure will be some great takeaways. Thanks!

    Talk to Judson about getting a job seeker deal for the SF Business Times. You get a job seeker's kit that includes the Book of Lists. Very good package that can be very beneficial for reading up on hot and growing companies to work for.

    I recently started my subscription to the SF Business Times, while also purchasing a copy of the SF Book of Lists 2013. It is a wealth of information on SF businesses. Am really looking forward to Jud Walsh's talk, because networking at the right places is the way to work in San Francisco.

    Judd's presentation is definitely worth coming to. Be prepared for a fast-moving and informative review of the Business Times.

    If it's half as good as the last session was, coming will be well worth it.
