WHAT: The 2-Hour Job Search with Steve Dalton, Author and Career Coach, Fuqua School of Business
WHERE: Geneen Auditorium, Fuqua School of Business
REGISTER: https://tinyurl.com/Fall20172Hour

The single hardest part of the modern job search is getting an interview. The only predictable way to get an interview is through networking, but “networking” is frustratingly vague advice. How do you network, exactly? In this workshop, Fuqua career coach and The 2-Hour Job Search author Steve Dalton offers an exact process – rather than a series of tips – for effectively turning strangers into advocates, leading to more internal referrals and more job interviews.

This session proposes an efficient alternative to hopelessly applying to online job postings by turning the difficult topic of networking into something finite and replicable. To create this process, Dalton drew upon the latest science ranging from behavioral economics to operations theory to social psychology to split networking into its three component parts: prioritization, outreach, and recruiting advocacy. Each will be discussed in turn to help job seekers harness free and simple technology to get the right job faster.

This is a joint workshop with the Fuqua School of Business, Nicholas School of the Environment, Sanford School of Public Policy, Pratt School of Engineering, Graduate School, Career Services, and Postdoctoral Services.

SPEAKER: Steve Dalton, Author and Career Coach, Fuqua School of Business
