How References Can Help to Get You Hired
References can be among your most valuable assets. Why? Because they can be the difference between your landing a job – or not. Based on who you select and what they have to say about you, your references can become a positive asset, and can convincingly demonstrate your suitability for a job. Attend this session to learn the best reference selection process, and how to prepare your references to help “tip the scales” in your favor.
Facilitated by Robyn Winters, TBJL Career Strategist
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
