Conversation with Erik Fromm
Especially in the heightened stress of transitional periods of our lives, we must combat forces that lead to poor decisions. Drawing on behavioral psychology research and our team’s collective experience in navigating situations for our clients, we’ll discuss the impact of Narrow Framing, Confirmation Bias, Short Term Emotion, and Overconfidence and discuss a four-step process designed to counteract these biases.

Making the Most of Informational Interviews with BARBARA MITCHELL
One of the best ways to gather data to help you focus your job search is to do informational interviews with people who either already are doing the kind of work you're searching for or who have expertise in your field of interest. While these interviews don't usually lead to job offers, they provide you with valuable information to use as you continue your search.
The people you'll want to interview with are typically busy professionals so you must carefully structure your "ask" and keep to an agreed to time frame. This session will focus on:

How Do You Find the Job You Really Want: “Sell” Yourself!
Research has shown that between 70 and 80% of jobs are never advertised. And even more daunting, when positions are posted, your odds of getting that job are a paltry 3%.
So how do you find the job that you really want? You can stop spending time reacting to advertised opportunities and start saving time by using a proactive approach to market yourself to organizations who can benefit by your experience and skills.
Selling is not an easy job, and selling yourself can seem even harder. I will show you how I have used my 20 years in sales and sales leadership roles to coach individuals using basic selling skills to find the job that isn’t advertised.
In my presentation you will learn:
· Identify your target market: Organizations where you want to work
· Find the decision maker: Who is the hiring manager
· Prospecting: Mechanics of creating a job search campaign
· Metrics and accountability: Tracking your activity
· Making the sale: Rewards for achieving your job search goals

WordPress Websites for Professionals
WordPress is a popular, powerful and user-friendly open source software that accounts for some 25% of all sites on the Web. Professionals can use WP either as a personal blogging and social media platform, or as a content management system within an organization.
In this presentation, Gary will explain WordPress's (WP) breadth as both a blog and content management system, explore various WP hosting options, and show how WP compares or connects with other site builder or social media tools. He will then discuss the details of planning website content and design, drawing on such WP components as Themes, Plugins and Widgets, and tapping a wealth of support resources on the Web and at WP events around the DC area. The talk will also include a WP demo, models of WP sites, and WP resource handouts. Lastly, he will touch on tech and non-tech career opportunities in WordPress. After the class, Gary offers to help (for a limited time) any interested attendees get started with their own free Wordpress.Com site.
