It’s that time of the year! You're now on the hunt for that dream job either as a fresh graduate OR as part of your career advancement.

With a ray of hope and excitement, you submit your CV to a job portal...and wait...

A few weeks go by, and you’re still not getting a response.

What will you do next?

Instead of wasting more time hoping for a reply from the HR of your dream company, why not turn your efforts toward building up your network of contacts?

However, it can also be hard to convey your passion about a job when you have no personal connection to the contacts you’re connected to.

So how do you start a tactful conversation with a potential employer you've just met (or added on LinkedIn) without being ignored?

Wow, that’s a big shot HR Director - should you even approach him for a conversation?

What do you say now?

Join us in our upcoming career workshop where you'll learn how to:

  • Build a professional network that can lead to jobs or other work-related opportunities
  • Make an effective and tactful elevator pitch that you can use to approach hirers - be it online or offline
  • Keep detailed records of your networking activity: to whom did you talk, about what, when, and what were the results?
  • Manage expectations of the corporate world so you don’t go into a huge culture shock!
  • And more!
