It’s a fact: More people land jobs through active networking—upwards of 85 percent—than by any other job search method. Expand your network with other job seekers (everybody knows somebody), find out who is hiring and about jobs that may never be advertised, share successful strategies and contact names, and practice your “elevator speech”—a brief two-minute verbal resume about positions desired and target employers—and let us help you.

Lisle Public Library, 777 Front Street, Lisle 60532—Meeting Room A/B

STAYING MOTIVATED IN YOUR JOB SEARCH—As Winston Churchill once said, “Never, Never, Never Give Up,” but that can be hard to do in the face of repeated rejection and lack of response from employers to your applications. In his presentation, Clinical Psychologist Sander Marcus, PhD, will address how to effectively deal with “motivational roadblocks” and discouragement that is common in job search. Marcus, who specializes in career and job search counseling, will provide numerous tools and inspiration to help you stay motivated and resilient, feeling hopeful and in control of your job search. Presentation will follow structured Job Club networking. Free.
