Redesigning Your Career – Accelerated Weekend Career Workshop


The job environment has become more complex with the use of computerized resumé tracking systems, online applications, and a myriad of other technology-based recruiting tools. Knowledge of how to penetrate the job market, particularly the 75 percent of the market that is never published, is more important than ever. In this course students will discover how to take charge of your career and develop a personalized, effective job-hunting toolbox for your life.
