After the talk, we will go into breakout rooms to hear from past and present members about their observations and experiences with The Westport Library's Job Search Work Team, which has successfully helped many members of our community land new positions.
Deb's talk with also discuss how job hunters can use a systematic, professional approach to job search. You will learn how to: devote more of your time to activities that are more likely to produce interviews; plan and organize even the most difficult job search to get the best results; focus your job search by defining your optimal job market; measure your progress in search, even prior to interviews and offers; and use progress measurements to diagnose and solve common job search problems.
