If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that things can change unexpectedly and very quickly. One day you're feeling pretty good about the direction your career is going. After all, you get good performance reviews, a modest annual merit increase, and maybe even a good year-end bonus or solid commission. 

Then, through events out of your control, you get the message that due to events out of our control, you are being furloughed or laid off completely. After years of loyal service, you find yourself unceremoniously let go by your company and a bright future has now become very uncertain.  

What do you do now? Losing your job can be a devastating life event! It's not easy, but you can survive and thrive! 

The reality is that separations from companies happen, but you can navigate through this stressful time. You can survive and thrive and get to where you truly want to be. 

This talk will present to you the roadmap you should take to land your next opportunity...From regrouping after the loss, to developing your personal brand, resume and LinkedIn profile to preparing for interviews. The key to a successful job search is focusing on the elements that will help you get to where you want to be, and this talk will help you get there.

By attending this session, you will learn how to:

  • Mentally prepare for a successful job search
  • Use “The TRUST Success Model” as a roadmap for success
  • Develop your personal brand 
  • Utilize LinkedIn as a marketing and job search tool
  • Utilize practical ideas that can be implemented immediately to improve your job search approach
