with Dale Brown

This speech will cover difficulties such as being a 40plus worker and having a disability.
   

By interviewing for information as suggested by Richard Nelson Bolles, jobseekers can work around challenges that can bring about discrimination by hiring officials.

The talk will cover;

*The Numbers Game (applying for openings) and How it Works Against Us

*Creative Job Hunting

*Finding Your Sellable Strengths

*Researching Organizations

*Finding the Person Who Has the Power to Hire You

*Persuading them to Create A Job for You

Dale will also tell her own story – how she found a job at the President’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities using informational interviewing and how she persuaded Bolles to write a book with her.
