All job seekers and mid-career professionals who would like to gain clarity on where to find opportunities and how to approach the rocks in their path, are invited to call in and quiz the experts. At the Office Hours Hangout, participants can ask questions ranging from specific ways to improve one’s LinkedIn profile to how to use free online tools for better marketing, or how to craft a Unique Value Proposition that helps a candidate stand out. Any and all queries are welcome.
This event will be repeated four times in February 2012, every Tuesday from 1-2 PM Eastern. There is no need for advance registration, although it is beneficial to connect online with the speakers beforehand, in order to ensure accessing the Hangout is a snafu-free experience. Attendees must have their own Google+ account.
Catherine Morgan is a Career Transition and Entrepreneur Coach, and the founder of Point A to Point B Transitions Inc. She has been employed by KPMG, Arthur Andersen, and Deloitte and brings unique insights to job seekers and small business owners.
Diane Dolinsky-Pickar is a Marketing Strategist and Social Media Whiz, and the founder of Mojo40. She has worked with small businesses and not-for-profits to get them current with the digital world, and has served as a Marketing Lead, Consultant, Journalist, and Project Manager.
“The most common problems that I see today for highly educated people over 40 are twofold. First, a huge number of job-hunters are frustrated that they are invisible in job search mode. Second, roughly 80 percent of those who have a job are dissatisfied with their work. They are stumped re how to reinvigorate their work or whether or not to look elsewhere,” states Diane Dolinsky-Pickar.
“In addition, most everyone in this cohort—folks between the Woodstock generation and the Facebook nation—feels overwhelmed by technology and needs pointers on how to begin and where to focus in order to up their lagging technical skills. We can help you see trends, in order to discover which fields and types of jobs are growing, and which specific innovations are worth knowing. And we can guide you to improve communication skills, a crucial skill set in a world of 24/7 response times."
Catherine Morgan adds, “The statistics I see is that the majority of jobs out there are filled by online and offline networking, and not from posted jobs. If you are not using LinkedIn and other social networks and technology tools, you are missing out on some amazing opportunities.”
