Women's Breakfast: New(ish) Year, New Job: How To Get Hired

Date: 02/28/2019

Time: 8:30am
Where: LMHQ, 150 Broadway, New York NY

Feeling ready to move on from your current job? Join us at LMHQ for a Women’s Breakfast all about getting hired! Learn about the misconceptions of job seeking, how to employ your network, the power of the informational interview, and ultimately, how to creatively find the best job for you, right now.
 
There’s no direct path for how to get a job, since careers today are not as linear as they once were – the days of spending 20 years at a company are gone. While people change jobs and industries all the time, you want to make sure a job is right for you so that you can stay for a while. That includes making sure the company culture is a good fit, that the company has an eye toward diversity, that salaries and work hours are fair, and that other employees enjoy working there.
 
If you’re thinking about making a career change, or even if you’re happy in your job now but want to brush up on your job seeking skills when the time comes, join us to hear from a panel of job seeking experts, including Nadia Abouzaid, Senior Director and Head of Professional Recruitment, Jopwell and Mary Pharris, Director of Business Development and Partnerships, Fairygodboss, moderated by Jeannie Kim, Editorial Director, The Muse.
 
Doors open at 8:30 AM for bagels and coffee and an opportunity for networking, and the program kicks off at 9:00 AM sharp.
 
This event is sponsored by: Verizon
