The Career Innovator Award competition recognizes individuals on the forefront of career innovation, and professionals providing products, services and information for job seekers and people who elect to drive and manage their careers.
President of Career Directors International (CD), Laura DeCarlo says: “There are many true career innovators in our midst. This year, once again, we received some extremely innovative submissions from professionals all over the world.”
Miriam Salpeter of Keppie Careers and Laura M. Labovich of The Career Strategy Group have been selected for an award this year for the popular job search book 100 Conversations for Career Success: Learn to Network, Cold Call, and Tweet Your Way to Your Dream Job, a frequent Amazon Top 100 Job Hunting Guide (published by New York-based LearningExpress, LLC).
This unique book is the first-of-its-kind to provide job seekers situation-specific communication protocol, including scripts, templates, outlines, and worksheets, so they know what to say when contacting people and companies during their job searches. With 92% of U.S. companies turning to social media to source and hire candidates, the book includes several chapters that guide readers on what to say and write to successfully leverage tools including LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ to land jobs.
Labovich said, “What an honor to be a recipient of CDI's Career Innovator Award. My co-winner Miriam Salpeter and I will proudly display this award as a symbol of our commitment to the field of career management. We could not have done this without the generous and insightful contributions of the CDI members.” Salpeter added, “We wrote this book to provide job seekers with a practical, useful tool to help them overcome their job search struggles. Now, no job seeker needs to wonder what to say or write when it’s time to pound the pavement.”
