As 2011 embraces us, the fact remains the most effective method for finding your way into a job is networking. Your employment doctor recommends attending four networking events each week. That's not all your doctor recommends. She also says you need to deliver a top notch interview. And you need to maintain your A-game personality for the whole job search, overcoming cynical and demoralizing impulses, to reach success. But how do you take all this medicine without a gag reflex to too much career advice?
SFPCN has the right medicine for you, delivered by performance coach Jonathan Bender, the founder of WholeSpeak and Get Real Networking. He'll provide practical tips to assist you in "performing" the best version of yourself - both authentically and effectively. Whether for a speaking engagement, networking events, or a job interview, you shall walk away with tools and techniques to: -
Connect and engage others effectively at networking events; -
Speak about yourself and your work with confidence; -
Display greater charisma and presence; -
Overcome nervousness when speaking or interviewing; and -
Impress others, while feeling great in the process. See you on Tuesday as we prepare the SFPCN community to make an impact on the job market.
