Free webinars on career strategies

Chris Miller (3)To get the perfect job, you need two things: The right goal. And the right strategy.

WSU career advisor Chris Miller will help Global Campus students figure out the first and develop the second during a series of free interactive Global Connections webinars that starts Monday. Each will run twice, and you can sign up for any or all of them:

Career Path. You’ll do a self-assessment of strengths, interests, and work values, then match those to a career. “Students will complete a free career assessment before we get together for the webinar,” Miller said.  “During the webinar, we will discuss the assessment, the results, and how it ties into career possibilities.” More...
Here’s a link to the assessment; please complete it before the event. 4-5 p.m. Dec. 10. Repeats 12-1 p.m. Dec. 11.

Resume/Cover Letter helps students learn how to create stand-out documents. “The group will review different resumes for the same position, and decide which candidate they would hire,” Miller said. “And WSU Online students can always send me their resumes at cmiller66@wsu.edu for critique at any time.” 4-5 p.m. Dec. 17. Repeats 12-1 p.m. Dec. 18.

Leverage is about strategic job searching and networking. “We will discuss different methods we have used in the past to find work, and I will provide today’s most successful job search strategies,” Miller said.  Building an effective job-hunting network will also be discussed, he said. 4-5 p.m. Jan. 7. Repeats 12-1 p.m. Jan. 8.

Interviewing will cover common interview questions, preparing for interviews, behavioral interview questions, and how to follow up after the interview. 4-5 p.m. Jan. 14. Repeats 12-1 p.m. Jan. 15.

All the webinars are part of the new Global Connections program, which brings campus-style events and resources to online students. To join the career planning events, please go to this link and select the register link.
