The Minnesota Recruiting and Staffing Association will be hosting the 2012 Jobs Summit March 27th (next week) from 9 am to 2 pm at the Minnesota School of Business in Richfield.
This is a FREE event for job seekers and has four parts:
30 staffing and recruiting companies will be interviewing for full time, part time and contract jobs.
Resume writing workshops & practice interview sessions
This is a great opportunity to have your resume looked and get a critique on how to make it better.
Interviewing… that word likely sends a bad shiver up the back of your spine. So practice with someone who can give you feedback and hopefully take the stress out of it for you.
Professional clothing drive:
Bring your new and gently used men women’s business apparel and donate them to Ready for Success so we can help folks in our community dress the part as they go through the job search process and interview process.
There are three including one from me…
9:30 am – 10:30 am
LinkedIn from A – Z: Using LinkedIn as a Job Search Tool
I have already submitted my slide deck (a first for me to be this prepared) and will cover everything from:
how to search for folks by name and title
how to connect with folks
building a network
finding jobs and companies
and the many various tools within the system
The next session does not start until 11 am so I may (un)intentionally go a bit long and answer as many questions as I can. If we need to find some space after to continue the conversation we will do that too.
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Setting Your Job Search Motivation on Fire
Whether you have been searching for a job for awhile or are just getting started with your job search, this session will cover the information you need to boost your job search and find the job you have been looking for.
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
Panel Discussion: Working with a Staffing Company or Recruiter to Find Your Dream Job
What types of jobs do staffing companies and recruiters offer? Can working with a staffing company or recruiter help you get your foot in the door at a company where you would love to work? What positions do some of Minnesota’s top employers use staffing companies and recruiters to fill? These and all of your other questions about working with a staffing company or recruiter to find a job will be answered during this hour-long panel discussion among Hiring Managers from some of Minnesota’s most reputable companies, including Wells Fargo, who partner with staffing companies and recruiters to fill open positions with their organizations.
