Getting The Job: Job Search and Networking

After a job seeker has decided what industries and positions to target, and after he or she has created a stellar resume and work sample presentation, it’s time to start the hunt. This program helps viewers make that leap of faith and fortitude with down-to-earth advice on where to look, who to talk to, and how to avoid common pitfalls. Viewers learn how to sift through online employment resources, including major Web sites like Monster.com as well as more niche-oriented sites; how to read between the lines when scanning and analyzing job postings; how to capitalize on job fairs, employment agencies, and on-campus interviewing; and how to access the “hidden” market of jobs that aren’t advertised. The latter topic segues smoothly into an intensive look at networking—exploring the difference between formal and informal networking and the best strategies for managing and mining a professional network. A Cambridge Educational Production. Part of the series Get Hired and Go: The Complete Guide to Getting a Job and Doing It Right. (26 minutes)
