How To Slay the Job Hunt: A Grad Workshop

April 18, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

At a Glance

Free, live, virtual workshop focused on the things you didn’t learn in school – like salary negotiation, resume writing, and networking – that are essential for real life, plus a live Q&A with our Founder & CEO, Emily Miethner.

Why Attend?

“How’s your job search going?” may be every graduating senior’s least favorite question. The real world is waiting for you, but you might not be totally ready for it yet – and that’s okay. We know the job hunt and the transition to “adulthood” can be overwhelming, and we’ve got you covered.

In this workshop, you’ll learn to:

  • Craft applications that recruiters will actually notice
  • Nail the interview and land an offer
  • Negotiate your salary to get what you deserve
  • Get comfortable networking and sharing your story
  • Create a stellar online presence
  • Stay positive during the job search (we’re here to cheer you on!)

This free virtual workshop will be held by none other than our fabulous and fearless leader, Emily Miethner.

The presentation will last about 45 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
