Are you frustrated by your job search, and not even sure what's going wrong?

John Hadley ( ) has coached 100’s of job seekers, and along the way has seen all sorts of traps that trip up candidates, often without them even being aware they’ve done anything wrong.

Join us on Saturday, March 12, as John Hadley shares strategies and techniques he teaches his 1-on-1 coaching clients to make sure they don't get snared by these traps! After all, if you don't even know you've done something wrong, how can you ever hope to fix the problem?
