Biltmore Hotels & Suites, Saloon III, 2151 Laurelwood Road, Santa Clara, Ca 95054


The most effective job search and career growth strategy is networking. This is how you tap into the hidden job market, get considered for openings that few know about, and get your résumé to the top of the pile.

Unfortunately, many professionals don’t know how to do it effectively. They mistake attending group networking events for ‘real’ networking, and make common mistakes of presentation that set back what efforts they do make.

In this workshop, John Hadley ( www.JHACareers.com ) will show you the do’s and don’ts of effective career networking. He will share specific techniques and strategies that he has taught his own clients to land the jobs and pay they deserve. He has applied these same methods to build 2 successful independent practices, and you will walk away equipped with new skills and confidence to network into that hidden job market.
