You don’t have to be a news junkie to know that the American job market presents a huge challenge for any job seeker–whether you are a new college graduate or a seasoned professional.
The big question: What really works for job seekers? What separates you– successfully--from others who want to enter or re-enter the work force?
To find the answers and share them in “The Communication Corner”–the interview program I host weekly for WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau”–I welcomed internationally acclaimed career and job search expert Lori Davila, who provides her services from Atlanta, Georgia.
Our 60-minute discussion covered these topics, and related themes:
–Special tips for workers age 50 and above
–Determining which job or profession suits you best
–How “Laughter Yoga” boosts the applicant’s spirit
–Putting your “gems” (major accomplishments) upfront in your resume
–Replacing the old, obsolete way of job-seeking
— “Head Hunters”
–Using LinkedIn to full advantage
–Interviews that include meals
–Negotiating for greater salary and benefits
Lori Davila provided her answers with vitality, clear how-to examples, and her obvious desire to help you get the job you want in the career slot that maximizes your talent and skill.
