Joe Sweeney wanted to see me present at The Professional Service Group back in June. Unfortunately he couldn’t make it. Rather than chalking it up to bad luck, Joe personally reached out to me and invited me to speak to a job search support group that he attends called, Joseph’s People. I told him if he could promise me that 50 people would attend, I’d be happy to present to his group… pro bono! Joe reached out to other neighboring groups and he organized a huge event! When all was said and done, well over 50 people attended.

In my 90 minute presentation, “Finding a Job in the Internet-savvy Millennium,” I provided 5 key action items that all attendees could take home and put to effective use immediately. We covered the importance of creating a strong online identity, Googling yourself, Google Alerts, LinkedIn profile optimization, leveraging the LinkedIn Network and MORE!

Here’s a small snippet of me explaining the degrees of a STRONG LinkedIn Network:

Thank you, Joe Sweeney for organizing a terrific event!
