Diagnosing your job search effectiveness

In an active job search? Are you satisfied with your progress? If not, do you know how to improve your effectiveness – so you can land, faster?
There’s no denying it, job search is complicated, there’s a lot involved, and unfortunately many “don’t know what they don’t know” about how to go about it successfully.

If you are curious, join us at our November 29th meeting. Our presenter will be Paul Stuhlman, co-Founder of JobSearchDx LLC and co-developer of the Job Search Diagnostic™.

The Diagnostic is the first-of-its-kind expert system that comprehensively evaluates the effectiveness of an executive’s job search and provides personalized advice on how to achieve better results. It incorporates the combined 40+ years of experience of Paul and his co-Founder, Peter Dubner, who have coached over 4,000 executives during their job search. It is based on a proprietary framework of the 3 Principles & 22 Factors™ that determine success; it’s the Digital Coach™. Feedback has been excellent; one Member expressed “The Diagnostic is very comprehensive, it really opened my eyes.” www.jobsearchdx.com

Bio
Paul is an Associate Member of The FENG, a frequent presenter at our Westport, CT chapter meetings and a regular contributor to Matt Bud’s daily editorial.

BREAKFAST MEETING: MONMOUTH/OCEAN Chapter in Freehold, NJ

- At 8:45, General announcements. If anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

PLEASE BRING: a name-tag, business cards, and copies of your marketing material.

This should provide your contact information at the top, followed by a brief overview of your background, and finally your target company list and a list of people you would like to meet. They should be handed out to the attendees just before you make your presentation, thus helping them to provide you with targeted assistance and advice.

- The do’s and don’ts of digital marketing and ensuring you don’t throw money at it before analyzing which tool will be the most effective first step

Speaker's bio:
Lara Jones (neé Wyles), Owner and President of Be a Legend Inc., has an exceptional business background, with over 14 years of corporate new business sales experience and is an advanced business strategist earning her title of “the legend” given to her by the owner of a $80M turnover business. During this time, she facilitated and helped grow the company from $5M to $50M over the duration of seven years, creating and managing the new business key account department, selling to FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies.

Never afraid to challenge, Lara has an impeccable understanding of business strategy and what it takes to get companies to the next level and ensure a R.O.I is achieved, ultimately increasing revenue faster. Her resilience, determination, ambitious mindset, energetic character, and warrior attitude sets her apart from the competition through applying her passion in helping individuals and organizations to become the best version of themselves. Lara helps unlock the tools in others that already exist at a certain level, implementing strategies, motivation, and belief they need to push themselves to the next level.

Earning her bachelor’s and master’s degree in Psychology and Counseling, Lara applies her educated knowledge and innate ability to be in tune with others’ needs, being extremely perceptive to human behavior. Understanding the psychology of high achievers, she has studied the mind, body language, tone of speech, and language in depth, thus is able to assess and identify the ‘winner quality’ within her clients. Using techniques and strategies to bring these to the surface, Lara is able to change mindset, ultimately creating a ‘power to endure’ and ‘never give up’ attitude, elevating the success of everyone around her!

Agenda

To the best of my knowledge, this will be the first combined Chicago (Downtown) and Chicago (Suburban) event ever (at least in my ten years in Chicagoland).

While there is no speaker scheduled to present on a specific topic nor time allotted for structured networking, be sure to bring plenty of business cards (handbills maybe cumbersome but bring those as well if you like) so that you can spread those around the group along with Holiday cheer and best wishes for an healthy and prosperous 2018.

Additional Info:
(1) Business Casual attire is appropriate, as is festive-wear.
(2) Cash Bar - attendees are on their own for beverages and snacks.
(3) Parking – The venue is located in the MB Financial Park at Rosemont and there is complementary garage parking for attendees.
