References Can Help to Get You Hired
References can be among your most valuable resources. Why? Because they can be the difference between you landing a job – or not. Based on who you ask and what they have to say about you, your references can be a positive asset, and can convincingly demonstrate your suitability for a job. Attend this session to learn how to select and prepare your references to help “tip the scales” in your favor.
What is Kick-Off Monday: Kick-Off Monday is a motivational, educational, and networking program designed to help you prepare for the week ahead, sharing conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment.
