51. Job Hunting Q&A.

As a career, job hunting, and LinkedIn visibility coach, I get asked many questions. I will be addressing some of them in this episode of The Job Hunting Podcast. This episode is suitable for professionals working in the corporate, public, or nonprofit sectors who are in-between jobs or looking to have better plans for their careers, adjusting to the new normal following the pandemic.

Introducing Reset Your Career: A Workshop and Action Plan to help professionals in transition.

Lockdown, working from home, and a major spike in unemployment have left many of us disconnected from what employers are now searching for in their new hires. This workshop and action plan were designed to help you regain focus and provide the tools and up-to-date information you need to reset your career. Learn more and register here.
