On November 11, CFA Society North Carolina was delighted to host Robert Hellmann of Hellmann Career Consulting.  He shared the strategic and tactical advice he’s giving concerned jobseekers and career advancers during this challenging time. The underlying theme: use this time wisely now to set yourself up for quick success later, once the economy starts to rebound. In particular, he covered:

  • How to tap into the hidden job market by building career-advancing relationships now
  • A method for getting organized, keeping in touch and contact management so that no opportunities pass you buy
  • How to conduct a virtual informational meeting that will get you interviews and referrals
  • Job search benchmarks to use in ensuring you’re playing the “numbers game” to win
  • If you’re currently employed, what to do now to prepare just in case
  • Observing “pandemic etiquette,” and other ways to drive new revenue as soon as possible

You’ll leave this webinar with specific steps you can execute immediately, and a timeless strategy that you’ll find useful now or far down the road.
