Monday Morning Speaker:

Finding Work in a Wired World - How to Shorten Your Job Search by Making Technology Work for You  with Kip Gregory


ABOUT THE PRESENTATION:

Join us as Kip Gregory, author of Winning Clients in a Wired World, returns to 40Plus to help us kick off the New Year by sharing real-world strategies for taking control of your job search effort using tools and resources you already own.

 

You’ll learn simple ways software and websites you use every day can impact your job search success.  Forget building a website or writing a blog, there’s a ton of benefit to be gained from just slightly smarter use of the sites, apps, and programs you already employ undefined to strengthen relationships, gather more timely intelligence, and synthesize information into insights that make you a more compelling, competitive candidate.

 

In this “don’t miss” session, Kip will lay out practical, easy-to-follow ways you can use tools like LinkedIn and Google to understand who’s who in the organizations and industries you’re targeting, uncover  timely opportunities and your hidden paths of connection to them, build rapport with decision makers and influencers, maintain greater visibility, and clearly demonstrate your value to potential employers.

 

Topics Kip will address include:

 

  • Keeping a Career Journal: the secret to staying organized and focused in your search
  • Beyond the basics: there’s more to networking than collecting business cards
  • The best way to build out your network and expand your reach
  • Uncovering openings and opportunities in the day-to-day activities of your online network
  • Pinpointing the referrals and introductions you want with LinkedIn’s Advanced Search
  • Leveraging common interests, groups, and associations to begin a dialogue
  • An executive MBA in how to develop subject matter expertise in 60 minutes or less
  • Using alert services to track news on employers, industries, and centers of influence
  • How to make yourself instantly and permanently memorable after every interview

 

No matter what type of position you are seeking, you will come away from this presentation with at least five new approaches to uncovering and pursuing the job opportunities you desire!
