Did you ever wonder about the impression you make on potential employers? Seemingly small things – such as the way you look when you walk in the door to your social media footprint – can create a positive impression on the people or companies who might hire you. Learn about things you can do that will make a difference in the way a hiring manager views you, and perhaps takes the interview process to the next level – by making a job offer.

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.
