Jenny’s Presentation from March’s MindShare Event

pdxmindshareIt was so nice to have Jenny Foss join us once again at MindShare and present. As a job search strategist, recruiter, resume writer, and the voice behind the popular career blog, she returns each year with a powerful presentation to help attendees learn some new tricks to help them secure a job they love. This year, she covered “The Letters.” She reviewed cover letters, networking letters, and thank you notes, and how to harness the power of these three methods of communication to help you get noticed and hired. It was a full house, and at the conclusion of her presentation, attendees had tons of great questions from how to address age, how to account for a skill you might not have, and much more. Attendees spent the rest of the evening networking and reconnecting with old acquaintances and meeting new ones.

If you missed the presentation, you can find it below. Also, here are some sample letters Jenny provided for you to review. Hopefully, you can get some great ideas from them!

MindShare will meet on TUESDAY, April 18th of next month. Again, we’ll be at Lucky Lab on Quimby at 4:30PM. Kate Grenadier is going to talk about Effective Communications and why it’s important, how to actively listen, and powerfully question in response. As always, attendees will have the opportunity to network at the end of the workshop, and it’s a FREE event everyone is welcome. No RSVP required. Reach out to Shannon if you have any questions!
