Module 1: Soul Search Before the Job
Use assessments to uncover your natural talents
This first module is perfect for career changers! In it, participants will explore the various types of assessments available for job seekers during a transition. This module is packed with info on how to ‘find your way,’ if you don’t know what you want to do, but know you don’t want to do what you’re doing!!
Module 2: Your Career Marketing Documents
Create a resume that resonates with target employers.
The second module is tailor-made for you if you’ve been sending out resumes but are not hearing back from your target audience. In this module, we will explore the science behind building your resume (including key ‘anatomy’ for all of you biology majors), and provide you with a tutorial in how to get past the electronic eye of the applicant tracking system. You’ll learn to create a polished and powerful career summary, a bulleted accomplishment that gets attention, and a cover letter that makes it insanely easy for a recruiter to ascertain your value in 10 seconds or less.
Module 3: The Hidden Job Market
Uncover where the real jobs are and how to position yourself for them.
In this lesson, you’ll learn why you must immediately start limiting your time spent applying to jobs online and, instead, focus on targeting companies. This lesson is jam-packed with power tools and concepts to help you structure your networking efforts, measure the quality of your contacts, and make HUGE progress in your search. (Job seekers say this module alone is worth the price of the course!) You will also learn how strategic volunteering can help make you an insider in your chosen field.
Module 4: Communicating with Your Network
Cold call, email, and pitch with success

Module 5: Job Search Resources
Learn to use headhunters and staffing firms to your advantage
In this lesson, we’ll tackle research … how to research industries, companies, and people of importance in your search. You’ll learn how and when to work with recruiters (headhunters) in your search and what to do when you’re ready to reach out!
Module 6: Using Social Media in Your Job Search
Understand how to leverage LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest in your job search.
In this lesson, we’ll demystify LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and blogging for job seekers. But, this isn’t just a social media 101 lesson. We’ll also teach you how to manage what’s already out there about you online, proactively generate the right content, and boost your most relevant branded content to the top so it’s easy to locate when recruiters search for you. (Which 90% or more of the time, they will!)
