Event Info

Ron Milman, Principal of The Milman Search Group will be presenting a modern day job skills seminar to the YPN.  What does that mean? Well, in case you haven’t noticed, our world has changed just a bit in 2020. And along with that change, the job market has changed immensely as have the necessary strategies needed to land a new job.  In-person interviews are temporarily non-existent, so your video (Zoom, Skype, etc.) meeting skills need to be polished up.  Remote work jobs are quickly taking the place of onsite roles, so are you prepared to be as effective from your living room as from your office at work? Does your resume have the right format, key words, and streamlining to get you noticed?  How are your networking skills and do you know how to get around the gatekeeper that is the applicant tracking system (ATS) and connect directly with the hiring manager?  And what about the current movement focusing on Diversity and Inclusion that most companies are making a top priority?  How can you be sure that you are aware of the changes in hiring practices and that you continue to present yourself as a hirable candidate? As our world continues to change and evolve, those who can adjust and change along with it will be the people getting noticed and advancing their careers.  Ron will walk you through these topics and others with a highly interactive discussion that will leave you with the skills necessary to keep your career trajectory moving forward.  And you will have fun learning these skills.   That we can guarantee!
