Event Details

The first segment will focus on the question of what you want to do next, giving you strategies for researching jobs and making decisions about qualifications, salary range, and location. Marilyn will help you visualize the job you want, articulate how the new position differs from previous ones and why you are qualified for it, and create a résumé that supports your job objective.

The second segment will focus on how to go after what you want. Marilyn will teach you how job hunting works today, how to use social media as part of the search, and how to uncover the "hidden" market. She will also offer creative strategies for getting your résumé in front of the hirer.

In the third segment, Marilyn will talk about how you can make your plan a reality. You will discuss ways to turn age into an advantage, why experience is worth more money, how to sell yourself in an interview against market trends, and strategies for turning follow-up opportunities like thank you notes as selling opportunities
