Job Quest: How to Become the Insider Who Gets Hired

Eighty percent of the people hired for a job are already known and trusted by that workplace; we call them “insiders”. In this webinar, Sheila Markin Nielsen teaches you how to become the insider who gets hired through a process of rapid relationship and trust building.

Through the metaphor of a quest, you will learn:

  • How to create your own luck
  • How to prepare for the quest
  • How to get around the resume-blocking gatekeepers
  • How to find key people to connect with
  • What to say once you connect with them
  • How to continue building your connections
  • When to start using the word "job"
  • When to go for the close
  • How to give back to your connections

Her advice is direct, practical, and wise, based on over 25 years of professional counseling experience.
