The workshop will begin promptly at 10:30am, please arrive a few minutes prior and dress to impress. Business casual is recommended and video is required.

Please RSVP at JWorks Miami event - your RSVP is required!

This is going to be a great workshop, we will be providing useful advice on how to build a network for greater success! Some of the topics to be covered include: What is networking? How to craft an impactful elevator pitch Networking tips to expand your circle Hidden job market Informational interview The idea is to develop a network of friendly people who share information to help each other. It is best known as a strategy for opening the hidden job market, for getting a good job. Because many jobs (some would say most) are not advertised, it is essential that you develop friendly relationships with people who can tip you off to job openings -- perhaps even introduce you to the person who is doing the hiring. There is some truth in, "It's not what you know, but who you know."

This is a great opportunity to network and also brush up on your job search skills. Our events are also a great opportunity for JWorks Miami staff to get to know you! Please note, we are unable to refer you to available opportunities unless we have met you in person.

If you have any questions please visit our website or call us at 305-403-6554.
