What you'll learn in this job skills training:

You're ready for a new job. You know what you want to do next, but you need help getting there. You've been doing informational interviews and sending out your resume, but it doesn't seem to be working.

There's a better process for landing a new job, and we'd love to help you use it!

​The Job Search Accelerator is a full day workshop that will help you land your ideal next job. You’ll learn proven techniques to stand out from the competition, make a compelling value proposition to employers, and choose the right job offer for you.

By the end of the Accelerator:​

  • You'll be able to use our effective job search process now and any time in the future when you change jobs.
