JWorks Miami invites you to attend a FREE Networking & Information Interviews workshop on Thursday, December 6th, 10:30am-12:30 pm. ###
Please RSVP at JWorks Miami - RSVP is required! The workshop will begin promptly at 10:30am, please arrive a few minutes prior and dress to impress, business casual is recommended.
Networking Works! 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 going to be a great workshop about how to build a network for greater success in your job search and beyond!
* What is networking?
* How to craft an impactful elevator pitch
* Networking tips to expand your circle
* Hidden job market
* Infomation interview
These events are also a great way 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.
All events will be held at:
