“Looking for a Job…Again!”

This is your worksheet for the NABBW Teleseminar on May 24, 2011 with Kathleen Vestal Logan and Betsy Smith, Ph.D.

Kathleen and Betsy conducted an NABBW teleseminar on their book Second Blooming for Women: Growing a Life That Matters after Fifty on April 26, 2011. During the call, participants suggested several future topics, one of which was how to conduct a successful job search.

After all, older women must consider such things as gaps in employment, ageism, and new methods of social media for networking.

Be sure to visit our website right after the call to learn about our gifts for all who participated in our NABBW calls.

This teleseminar is designed to help you answer such questions as:

How do I find out where the jobs are?

What is the first thing I need to do?

What kinds of resumes are there, and what should I include in mine?

How do I stay motivated after being rejected for a job or, worse, ignored?

Do I have to do this “networking” thing? Why? How?

What and where are the best places to network?

How do I use social media to enhance my job search?

Why is it important for me to know my values, vision, passions and purpose before I start looking for a job?

What are companies looking for in potential employees?

What will make me stand out from other applicants?
