Youth unemployment is one of the greatest challenges for Australia. Until the onset of the GFC it was on a downward trend, however now it is it the highest rates we have seen in 20 years.
My experience with this age group is that they’re unsure how to sell themselves to recruiters and hiring managers. They’re keen to get experience but don’t know how to get in front of the right people. Due to the techniques they use they give up due to lack of results and no feedback. It’s a frustrating experience.
This workshop is designed to give participants an awareness of the ‘real world’ of recruitment. Being able to sell themselves is a life-long skill and more importantly when they’re a university graduate.
During this 3 hour workshop students will:
- Identify how to get clear about their vision for the future
- Define their strengths and how to amplify them to stand out from the crowd
- Learn how to build networks and contact employers for internships
- Discover what employers are looking for and learn how to get found by a recruiter
- Get feedback on what a recruiter will like or not like about their personal brand
- Learn the secrets of LinkedIn and how to access the hidden job market
- Explore how to sell themselves in their resume with limited experience.
Students will receive:
- A workbook with key activities to help them explore their Personal Brand
- 21 days of ‘expresso shot’ morning emails to continue to build awareness of their Personal Brand
- 12 months access to my online Fastrack Job Search Program with recorded webinars on how to build their resume, how to sell themselves in their LinkedIn profile and how to access the hidden job market. With over $7000 worth of materials and usually selling for $297, students will have access to it for a year to help them in their job and internship search.
Here’s what some have said:
I wasn’t completely sure how the topics would be received by the delegates but I can assure you they were talking about it over the BBQ after the kayak experience and the next day at the conference. Some said it was the best student workshop that we had had. Jane, I would like to thank you in particular for your delivery and the way you changed the structure of the workshop to fit in with the delegates needs…. the fact that all their questions were answered obviously contributed to the success of the workshop.” .
