Lauren is presenting to trainees at NINDS on developing an effective job search strategy - this is the 3rd talk in a series of 10 talks that Lauren will be giving over the next year.


Industry Job Search Strategy

This talk provides advice on how to prepare and conduct an effective job search. This presentation begins with a focus on questions that every job seeker should ask themselves before they begin their search to ensure a focused search on roles and organizations aligned to the job seeker’s values, interests, and skills. The talk then provides tips on how to identify and research organizations through on-line searching, LinkedIn, conferences, press releases, new sources, networking and other methods and how to identify the title(s) relevant to your career interests. Additional details will be discussed regarding how to create a job search checklist and the value of formally tracking your progress over time to maintain focus and accelerate the search. The talk discusses the “hidden job market” as well as how organizations and recruitment firms use resume databases and LinkedIn to connect with talent. Lastly, the talk covers job search timeframes including when to start looking and how long you have to make a decision on an offer once you receive one.  This talk focuses mainly on the industry job market, but information can be applied to the academic market also.
