Workshop Description:  Between 70-80% of all jobs are obtained through networking. From a hiring standpoint, networking is the most critical skill to have in job-search and career development, and perhaps all of business. But many professionals avoid it entirely, eliminating career and life-changing opportunities.

In this discussion and mini-workshop session, Nathan A. Perez, co-author of the multi-award winning The 20-Minute Networking Meeting, will share the ground-breaking concept that is utilized by coaches, government workforces, human resources and outplacement organizations around the country, and individual job-seekers around the world.

Made to simply and clarify networking for job search, Nathan will cover:

  • The 5 most important parts of a networking meeting
  • How to create a networking agenda
  • How to construct key questions to lead a discussion
  • How to expand a professional network with more names
  • How to break into the Invisible/Hidden Job Market
  • How to execute the above (and much more)– inside of 20 minutes
