Webinar: How to get job search ready for 2018

An excerpt of the webinar “How to get job search ready for 2018.” Career Account members can watch the full recording below.

While hiring tends to slow down around the holidays, employers tend to ramp up their recruitment efforts in the first few months of the new year, with refreshed budgets and new strategies in place. The holidays are therefore a great opportunity to reflect on your career, consider new challenges, and prepare to kick off your job search in 2018.

Kate Warren, senior director and editor at Devex, returns for the second webinar in our three-part Job Search Bootcamp series to discuss the key steps to a strategic job search. This involves “updating and fine tuning your marketing assets,” says Warren “then spending time finding jobs and employers that match what you are looking for and really thinking about how to focus and tailor your outreach accordingly.”
