Paul Hill author of The Panic Free Job Search will be the featured job search expert at the HAPPEN Network event "Harness the Power of the World's Largest Professional Network" presented by LinkedIn's recruiting specialist, Perry Monaco.
Paul Hill, Job Search Expert and Chief Instructor at Transition to Hired will be on hand to answer questions about job search and best practices in social networking as it applies to sound career management.
Learning how to leverage LinkedIn’s new amazing free features is a must for all professionals interested in career management, promoting their business, creating professional relationships, getting more business, and getting hired.
HAPPEN is a professional networking group that links professionals with opportunities. With two meetings weekly and a line up of international guest speakers presenting on topics in job search and career management, HAPPEN is the place to be for all professionals who are serious about career management and career advancement.
“Networking is the number one way to land a job and with more and more employers turning to LinkedIn to recruit new employees or their employees for internal referrals, joining HAPPEN and learning about LinkedIn through Perry Monaco’s presentation are no brainers” said Paul Hill.
“Having LinkedIn’s Perry Monaco and Paul Hill, a job search expert with an outstanding record of getting job seekers hired, on hand for our members and the general public to meet and tap in to their knowledge base is an incredible opportunity for all professionals and is not to be missed.” said Jim Geraghty, President of HAPPEN. "We have had Perry present at HAPPEN previously and the event sold out because our members realize the value of LinkedIn to bettering their careers and how important it is to be up-to-date on the latest trends in this very competitive job environment.”
