There are a few reasons why you may experience a stall in your job search: (1) your job-seeking efforts have not produced a sufficient number of active leads; (2) you have not received responses to your email, calls, or other forms of communication; (3) you have not been getting interviews; (4) you've been getting interviews, but have not been offered a position. This session will provide ways to reignite your job search and get it – and you – back on track.

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.
