Successful Job Search Campaign Messages 
By Ross Primack from the CT Department of Labor 


This workshop will run from 45 mins to 1 hour at the Job Fair
At 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. 


Have you ever heard the advertising slogan, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression?” This is especially true of all facets of your job search. In today’s highly competitive job market, you have a brief window of opportunity to capture the interest and attention of a prospective employer. In this presentation, we’ll discuss problematic messages unintentionally delivered in résumés and cover letters; social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook; and during job interviews. Topics covered include: 

• How an email address can convey a lack of tech skills and or laziness. 
• Why words like etc. or various are poisonous to your job search. 
• The critical significance of metrics on your résumé. 
• How Target Job Deconstruction can expedite your job search. 
• The appeal of reciprocity to employers who use LinkedIn to find candidates. 
• The importance of staying on message during your job interview. 
• The one interview question that’s guaranteed to derail your candidacy. 
• Leaving a lasting impression at the closing of the interview. 
• Why you shouldn’t just “thank” an employer.
