Whether you're looking for full-time, part-time, or contract work, the job market is rough right now
. Let interview-prep expert Kirsten school you on what to bring, wear, ask, and NOT
to say in order to land the job. This is a JellyLA Talks workshop which means hands-on learning, you'll leave with immediately-usable skills, and get a quick-reference resource sheet ensuring lessons aren't forgotten and learning continues.RSVP in advance
for $13 through Meetup.com, or at the door for $15 (cash only).
We'll be giving away
a signed copy of Gary Vaynerchuk's
new book "CRUSH IT: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion." Winner will be chosen from those in attendance.SOCAL CONVERGENCE

!THE CANCELED TALK
The first JellyLA Talk, Be an Email NINJA, was suppose to be held in Silverlake yesterday, but no one RSVP'd. I'm sure there are a variety of reasons why?but rather than make assumptions, I'd like to hear from you. How can we make JellyLA Talks work for you? Was it the location that kept you away from "Be an Email NINJA?" Was it the topic? Was it the ticket price?Please send me you feedback
. (Visit the Be an Email NINJA
page to learn more about the event.)THANKS FOR COWORKING
