Whether you’ve just graduated from college, are in the middle of your career, or somewhere in between, competition for jobs can be fierce. What’s important is for you to stay relevant in today’s job market. Examples include finding out the latest trends – within your industry or within your areas of expertise, and then connecting with people who can provide up-to-date information. Learn what you can and should be doing to stay on top of your game – and ahead of the competition!

WHAT IS LINKS:  LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
