So I met with the career coach today. She turned out to be an interesting entrepreneur who runs several businesses, consulting, facilitating, and otherwise. Although very busy, she eeks out some time every week to counsel others thru the program. Althought I’m definitely interested in the Entrepreneur track, I have not totally discounted the track for Traditional Job Search. She recommended taking several courses thru the company: “Be Your Own Boss,” “Building a Target List,” “Effective Networking,” “Networking with LinkedIn,” and “Advanced LinkedIn.” In orientation yesterday, we learned that 85% of recruiters find people assets thru LinkedIn, so that’s definitely a social avenue to be pursued.
Apparently the team meetings(reference WAKING UP TO CAREER TRANSITION) have been suspended for the summer. Since being part of a team is so integral to the success of the program, it might be wise for me to put the program on hold until fall. I’ll take a few classes and then decide if that’s the best course for now.0 Be the 1st to recommend
