Abstract of the presentation:
Abby will deliver a presentation entitled “Job Searching 2010 – How to Play and Beat the Odds”. In 2010, you can no longer find a job by applying to positions on Monster & CareerBuilder. There are far more candidates applying for the same positions, so you have to differentiate yourself. The days are gone when having a resume printed on special paper with a fancy font on it will get you noticed. In today’s job market, you have to network your way into companies using face-to-face connections and social media. Abby will discuss a variety of networking methods and will also offer unique ways to get your resume in front of the hiring manager.

About the Conference Call:
Conference call participation is free and questions are encouraged. Long distance charges may apply depending on your carrier - some cell phone companies allow free long distance after certain times in the evenings.
