SJN is hosting its first ever event in the West Valley at Glendale Community College.  This is an exciting opportunity for us to continue our partnership with Maricopa  County Community Colleges and we appreciate their support.

Join us on Thursday, June 4th for an evening workshop on internet tools for job search. This is also an opportunity for SJN members in the West Valley to network with us in a local venue!

SJN’s Get Wired to Get Hired!

Smart Ways to Use the Internet during your search

You probably know that networking in-person is the single best thing you can do to accelerate your job search. You might be finding it hard to get face-to-face meetings, and very easy to spend your whole week in front of the computer! Come to this SJN seminar to understand how to make maximum use of the powerful tools available through the internet, with the understanding that the goal is to get you hired.

Among other things, you will:

  • Understand how internet tools fit into each phase of SJN’s Curriculum for the Job Search Process
  • Discover free resources that help you reach hiring decision-makers
  • Learn how to tap into the power of LinkedIn to further your job search

This workshop is provided through collaboration between SJN and Glendale Community College.
