As restrictions are lifted and ultimately gone, it's important to turn this new employment landscape into a strategy we like to call the Five P's: Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance. In this 5 session virtual series, participants will learn the skill sets needed to navigate the new, post pandemic, world of work.

  • Session 3: Updating your resume and identifying Transferable Successes. Creating 4-7 Success Bullets for an email/LinkedIn introduction
  • Session 4: Polishing up your LinkedIn Profile
