Skillfully promote achievements in a job search

Published:

Doing a good job promoting your skills, successes and attitude is vital to developing confidence and connections during a job search. 

Whether during a networking meeting, an interview, or a casual conversation with friends or acquaintances, the ability to communicate your value in a working environment is a key element to success. The process begins with exploring and capturing your accomplishments succinctly on your resume, then developing a short summary that can be presented in a minute or two in conversation. 

Participants will learn the key elements of developing effective accomplishment bullets on a resume, practice writing bullets on their accomplishments, developing the "rest of the story," then have the opportunity to practice discussing their accomplishments. This interactive session will help develop skills that can immediately be used in a job search. Bring a copy of your resume to the meeting.

Jeff Bissell, a Hudson Job Search advisor and CFO at National Machine Company in Stow will be our speaker at the meeting on Jan. 6 to discuss "How to Skillfully Promote Your Achievements in a Job Search."

Hudson Job Search meets the first and third Monday evenings of each month at Christ Church Episcopal, 21 Aurora St. with sign-in at 7:15 p.m. The meetings are free and open to the public and for more information go to www.hudsonjs.org or call 330-653-5322.
