NEW! The Virtual Informational Interview: How to Grow Your Network During Social Isolation
Tara Thom Burnett, Employment Facilitator
Tuesday, April 14 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific (2:00 p.m. Eastern)

One of the fastest ways to secure employment is by networking and accessing the hidden job market. This usually means getting out and meeting people in person. How can you continue to work toward your employment goals during the COVID-19 crisis, while maintaining physical distance? This session will introduce the virtual informational interview, a tool that can maximize your job search and networking efforts—even while self-isolating. Tara will demonstrate how you can prepare for the interview, what questions to ask, and how to find new connections online. By conducting informational interviews virtually, you can continue to pursue job leads, explore different occupations, and practice your face-to-face networking skills, all from the comfort of home!
