Agenda:

Topic: “Job Hunting Is a Numbers Game”

Speaker: William “Casey” Fehl, financial advisor with AXA Advisors

Presentation:
This discussion is based on Casey's 13 years of experience as a financial advisor and the similarities of professional sales to job hunting. Casey talks about the effectiveness of proactively reaching out to people to discuss “your situation” (aka your job search) instead of, for example, applying online and reactively waiting to hear back. Casey also touches on several important things to help people maintain a positive attitude during these challenging times.

In “Job Hunting Is a Numbers Game!”, attendees will learn:
- A proven system to track their progress and keep themselves accountable.
- The most successful job hunting strategies, based on statistical evidence.
- How to be better able to handle the inevitable rejection that comes with job hunting.
- How to be able to bounce back stronger.
- Leave this session feeling more confident about landing a great job in a shorter amount of time.

Speaker's bio:
Since 2009, Casey has worked and volunteered with numerous groups that support individuals in job transition, and has learned that there are many similarities between professional sales and job hunting. Mr. Fehl has been a financial advisor with AXA Advisors since 2004. Casey’s practice focuses primarily on retirement planning for young parents and professionals in job transition. In addition to his full time work, he is Co-Chairman of the Mark Alexander Baranowski Memorial Fund and volunteers with several organizations that support professionals in job transition.
