Another holiday weekend, another opportunity to meet someone you never thought could help you with your job hunt! Be sure to take advantage of unexpected opportunities via in-person networking when you are eating hot dogs and watching fireworks. You never know what you could learn by chatting with a friend of a friend of a friend.
Don’t put on your “I’m a job seeker” hat, butÃ‚Â do think about ways to introduce yourself that make it clear what you offer and how you can solve problems for your targeted employer. Think about how you can pitch what you offer, not just what you WANT. Think about your value proposition — what you offer. Think about telling your story. Some preparation in advance is helpful — so prepare!
