We are partnering with the Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago for this career event. You'll learn how to know when you're stuck, why people get stuck, and how to start making meaningful progress through a 'What the Hell' approach and changing your mentality.

Many job seekers are able fill up a 40 or 50 hour week that's comprised of search activity that really doesn't deliver as much progress as they'd like. They aren't uncovering new target companies. They aren't getting great introductions to key influencers. They aren't receiving many interviews. And they're spending a lot of their time answering online ads along with 200 other candidates and getting lost in the shuffle. THEY ARE STUCK.

If you identify with any of the following characteristics, then this webinar could prove to be quite helpful for you:

  • Not getting at least 1 interview each week
  • Not having at least 10 networking calls each week
  • Not getting at least 5 LinkedIn profile views each day
  • Starting to lose confidence and second-guessing yourself
  • Don't have a specific job search marketing plan
  • Aren't tapping into the "hidden job market"
  • Applying for jobs that you really don't want
  • Starting to lower your bar on what jobs are acceptable
  • Your emotions are getting the best of you
  • Low energy level and easily frustrated

This session will discuss how you can know when you're stuck, why people get stuck, and, most importantly, what actions you can take to start making some meaningful progress by leveraging your network, LinkedIn, your messaging, a proactive marketing approach and changing your mental outlook.
