What we'll do
This is career management/guidance for creatives!
How well do you keep track of whether your job is helping you meet your goals? Do you know what you would do if you were laid off tomorrow? Can you easily quantify your impact in your current job? Do you know what makes you stand out in a job search? In a resume? In your LinkedIn? Does reading all that make you anxious?
This is a strategy "tune-up" meetup. Whether you have a job but want one that is a better fit or you are looking -- this meeting is intended to 1. be a bit more fun 2. offer some energy and inspiration 3. connect you with awesome people who inspire 4. answer your job hunting questions and give you feedback on those resumes you keep sending into the void. Even if you love your company - these sessions are designed to help you avoid SLEEPING WALKING THROUGH YOUR CAREER!!
WHAT WE'LL DO
Part One - Focus!
The first hour is reserved for working individually on your resume, portfolio, website etc.
We'll have resources available to quietly discuss feedback.
Part Two - Collaborate
We'll have a guided discussion. The second hour is for folks to network (i.e. hangout), ask for feedback, advice, and get tips and techniques. 2/10 -- 2018 hacks for finding your perfect job
2/17 -- What to do when your network is no help
2/24 -- TBD

Important to know
Space is limited per session. The first few sessions will be donation based (meaning you can pay what you will in the "hat" - -anything is appreciated - post-its aren't free!) For those of you that are coaches and/or HR Consultants and may be interested in facilitation/speaking - Contact me separately and I'll do my best to accommodate you into the agenda -- but please do not sign up as a participant if you do not want to participate.
