Overview:
Former FBI Special Agent Jack Schafer was given assignments to get information from foreign spies or convince foreign diplomats to turn against their country and work for the United States. He was able to build a relationship of trust with these individuals, by following the pattern all humans go through in developing trust and friendship. Even if the stakes aren't so high, sometimes it feels just as daunting of a task to walk into an interview.

Certified body language trainer & self mastery coach, Jeff Baird shares science backed strategies to help you nail your next interview and get the job of your dreams.

How do I begin to write a "professional marketing product" (i.e. your resume) that will be seen, capture the attention of my "target audience" (i.e. Recruiter, hiring Manager, HR Rep, etc.), and communicate my skills and background effectively?  There are numerous stressors and hurdles when crafting this very important product, but a helpful first step is understanding those hurdles and identifying a strategy for overcoming!  In this virtual resume workshop, we'll discuss 5 major "resume truths" that exist today and how to address and overcome each to ensure your resume 1.) gets seen, 2.) captures attention and engages the resume reviewer, 3.) is easily digested by a non-technical audience/reviewer, 4.) communicates your impact, and 5.) aligns with a quality LinkedIn or GitHub profile, which is another very important "professional marketing material.”

Establishing a strong, positive, credible online presence, and engaging in Online Reputation Management, is a crucial piece of the job search process at this point! The major profile you want to build out and have a strong image on is LinkedIn. For Programmers, you'd also include GitHub. In this virtual workshop, we'll highlight LinkedIn profile best practices, including: a customized tag line, skills summary, power of recommendations, adding relevant skills, and more!
