Are you a frustrated job seeker? Upcoming Career Reboot Group sessions explain how to be proactive in your job search and to learn about those many positions that are never advertised. Opening this season’s series is a session to get you re-thinking your job search methods. Other sessions include tips on how to use volunteering, working with recruitment agencies, and networking to your advantage. Also upcoming are one-on one help sessions on resumes and interviewing, and a hands-on session on getting your profile onto LinkedIn.
