Finding Your Passion – Putting it to Work

Scottsdale Job Network Workshop

Scottsdale Job Network

Exploring Your Passion–and Putting it to Work

Passions Workshop

SJN will be offering a special workshop for job seekers, Exploring Your Passion–and Putting it to Work, on Tues, April 29 at Temple Chai. The program runs from 9 AM-4 PM and has a limited enrollment of 30 participants.

“Passions,” as we often refer to it, was created and has been presented to job seekers for several years by SJN Board Member and Facilitator, Maria Wojtczak. Read about the focus of the workshop:

Job seekers often limit themselves to what they “have always done” because it was the career that defined them for many years. They tend to lose sight of their many gifts, interests, strengths, and wealth of skills they developed through their life experience. This workshop utilizes proven tools to help individuals identify their strengths, talents and preferences – what they’re basically good at and really enjoy doing! and can prove to be useful in opening up job search options.

Because of the need to purchase booklets, binders and printed materials, this workshop has a fee of $25.

Upcoming Programs from the SJN Curriculum:

Interviewing Skills, Part I

April 1, 2008 – Facilitator: Jim O’Hara

Interviewing Skills, Part II

April 15, 2008 – Facilitator: Jim O’Hara

CREATING LEADS and NETWORKING:

-What does “AIR” have to do with it?

Join us on Tuesday March 18, 2008 as we roll out the fourth session of the SJN CURRICULUM on the Job Search Process.

“I called a friend of mine, John, and asked him if there was an opening at his company. He said he wasn’t sure, but didn’t think so. I also called three other friends and told them I was looking for work. I asked them that if they heard of anyone who was hiring, would they please let me know.” I spent the whole morning on the phone networking.” Sound familiar? Most people know what networking is-and don’t do it OR some think they are networking, but aren’t doing it correctly. Did you know that 75-80% of jobs are attained through networking? Believe it or not-it is true!

Join us when Martha Rockwell, career coach and member of the SJN Curriculum Development Committee, delivers a presentation that will take you through the steps of the networking process! It is not as difficult as you might think. The best part about networking is that it gives you more control of your job search. Learning to network correctly will change your attitude toward this very important area of the job search process. Martha will give you a way to put some “AIR” into your search- come and find out how!

Having graduated from Arizona State University, Martha’s background includes career advisement, education, and sales. Certified by the PARWCC (Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches) and licensed by the State of Arizona as a career coach, she is owner of A+ Resumes & Career Coaching.
