Work Search Roundtables

These sessions are open to the public and provide ongoing networking, support, group problem solving, and coaching for individuals during periods of work search and career transition.

  • Verbal Resume / Elevator Pitch

  • True, Relational Networking
  • Reactive Job Search Tips
  • Proactive Search Strategies
  • Resume Building & Cover Letter Tactics
