Crawling out from under their rocks

Editorial by Matt Bud from the October 16, 2018 Newsletter

Every once in a while I get a note from one of our members about folks who are promising to find him/her a job by waving their magic wand. I can almost see these so called miracle workers crawling out from under the rocks they call home. You would think that exposure to sunlight would kill them, but like cockroaches, nothing seems to permanently destroy them.

The objective of our meetings is to give each member an opportunity to continually hone their networking skills, meet their peers, share job leads and develop networking opportunities.

Each attendee will get a chance to deliver their two-minute elevator speech, share recent successes and failures, present their networking requests, discuss their job search questions and any concerns they may be struggling with, and apprise the group of any new searches, requests, etc. that they have become aware of.

Please bring at least twenty-five copies of your “one pager”. 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.

Please have copies of your resume available to handout to those interested parties who may want to learn more about you or pass it on to individuals they think may be interested in talking to you. Also, bring a nametag to wear and a “name” tent card to place on the table in front of you.

Members of BENG and FEI are also invited to attend.

“Do You Understand the Hiring Manager?” - Robert Half Offices – Saddle Brook, NJ

Interviewing would be so much easier if you just knew what was going on inside the hiring manager's mind. There would be no need to be nervous. You would have the perfect answer to every question. You would tell him exactly what he wants to hear.

This compelling workshop focuses exclusively on the interview from the hiring manager's perspective. You will learn from someone who has hired hundreds of people in his career. You will examine the interview process and the manager's decision making process step-by-step.

Get an inside look at why specific candidates are invited to interview and which candidates typically receive the job offer. Most people don't realize they can easily alter the course of a "tough" interview. Learn how to balance your candidacy and the hiring manager expectations at the same time.

When you understand the true nature of what happening in an interview, you are strongly positioned to present yourself confidently as the ideal candidate.

This session focuses on interview success. In it, you will:

• Uncover what happens on the other side of the desk
• Learn about the rules of engagement
• Understand why interviews are structured the way they are
• Be able to deliver smart, compelling interview answers
• Enter every interview confidently

Our speaker, Alex Freund is known as “The Landing Expert”. Alex helps his clients land new positions and get promotions through effective interviewing. As a former director at Honeywell, Sanofi and Tyco International, Alex is an experienced hiring manager.

Currently, Alex is a career coach, specializing in helping his clients improve their interviewing skills and making them confident and comfortable throughout the interviewing process. For the last 11 years, Alex has helped more than 700 clients ranging from managers to CEOs in a variety of industries.

Alex is volunteering in several job-search networking groups where he is an occasional presenter.
