Today’s job market is anything but traditional. Job seekers have to go beyond the paper resume, leveraging social media tools and maintaining an online persona that highlights not only IQ but EQ (emotional intelligence). How can applicants use these new indicators of talent to better showcase their skills and convey competency? Let alone find a job that you’ll love? Some say that cultural fit can be as important as title and salary, so how do you persuade an employer that you can not only do the job, but that you’re one of the team? Our panel of career coaches and modern job experts will help you craft your most-hirable self and conquer the evolving job market.

Not Your Usual Career Fair
After the panel network at our reception to connect with career coaches, find a mentor, get a resume mini makeover, and learn the skills to reimagine your career. SCORE representatives are providing one-on-one mentoring sessions to discuss small business plans and start-ups. SmartRecruiters will give you pointers on writing an inspired cover letter and how to navigate the interview process.
