Finding a new job is emotionally and physically draining. In all honesty, finding a new job… stinks.

Tom will be leading a discussion on the skills necessary to find a job and how to make the job search process enjoyable. He will discuss everything from writing an awesome resume, pro-active networking, company outreach, interviewing like a boss, and negotiating amazing offers. He will also discuss how to be resilient when you don’t get the job. Tom will share personal anecdotes from his own job search journey and answer questions from attendees. Please bring a copy of your resume and be prepared for a fun discussion on the crazy world of the job-search!
