Are you currently engaged in a job search? Is it getting you interviews? Are you getting job offers? If not, come learn how to run an effective job search! From writing that resume to landing the job, career transition specialist Dale Gold will explain the four phases of a job search and how to navigate each one.

Questions to be addressed include: Is my resume good enough? Are cover letters necessary? Why does my resume seem to fall into a black hole when I apply for jobs online? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, or wondered what networking and LinkedIn are really all about, this seminar is for you. With insights gained from over 15 years of experience in the human resources field, Dale will discuss interview preparation, implementation and follow up -- and give you added confidence for your next interview!

Dale is a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Business, Human Resources Management with a minor field of study in Communications, Training and Development. She holds a certificate as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Using Mindfulness to Change Your Organizing Habits    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Trying to get organized? Organizing will probably fail if it only addresses the symptoms of the disorganization and doesn't get to the root causes. It's like mowing the dandelions from your yard; they'll just grow back. To make effective and lasting changes, you need to pull them out by the roots. In the same way, your physical surroundings are a reflection of your mental and emotional processes.

Come take a seminar with Joyce Wilde, author of the book The Wilde Woman's Guide to Organizing in Five Simple Steps: Using Mindfulness to Change Your Habits, and learn how to pull those dandelions out by the roots. The workshop will be focused on assisting women and men who would like to be organized as a way of living, rather than just get temporarily organized. Learn to physically organize yourself and understand the emotional and mental roots that cause disorganization.

Joyce B. Wilde, M.S., is a psychologist, writer, professional organizer, and international speaker who helps creative professionals get through challenging transitions by teaching them how to organize effectively and communicate compassionately.
