This talk provides advice on how to prepare and conduct an effective job search and will provide insights on what organizations look for as they evaluate talent. 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.
