Are you in transition or considering making a change? Does it make sense to leave your current position or should you try to improve your situation? The current job market is supposed to be strong, but it can be bewildering! How can you find a job that's a good fit when you're having trouble even getting noticed by employers? Join us for a panel discussion with three of the authors of our new book, Find Your Fit: A Practical Guide to Landing a Job You'll Love.

During the webcast, we will touch upon some of these topics:

  • How can I tell if it's time to make a change?
  • What strategies can I use to improve my current situation?
  • Is networking still valuable and viable in this job market?
  • How can I stand out from the crowd in a good way?
  • What are some of the biggest mistakes that jobseekers make?
  • How can I research companies that might be a good fit for me?

In addition, we will answer queries from participants. When you register, please take a minute to submit a question you'd like our panelists to answer.
