Have you noticed how much the job search process has changed?

The Internet and Social Media websites have drastically changed the way hiring managers not only find employees, but check them out too!

While you still need to have basic skills in networking, interviewing and building a credible resume, today you have to have an understanding on how to use Twitter to find jobs before they are posted as well as know how to use Facebook and Linkedin to expand your network.


To help you build a successful career and job search strategy, we are introducing a new Alumni Career Speaker Series that will deliver the nation’s top career authors and experts right to your computer for live Webinars. Knowing you have a busy schedule, you’ll also have access to the Webinar recordings and PDF's of their presentations anytime, via any device.

Presentations available for 2013-14
