Do You Know … What You Don’t Know?

Michael has a track record of conducting exceptional, engaging and highly informative lectures and presentations – he is a keeper of lost knowledge.

Consider this:

Coinciding with the rise of the internet and subsequent social media, too many people have either lost their ability or have never learned how to find a job – relying predominantly upon on line tools. But did you know that many jobs are not posted on line,  jobs out there that you are not even aware of?

Worse yet, most people today lack basic negotiating skills and enter the interview process with a disadvantage. Most interview only when they must and when they do, they are reactive but hardly interactive.

Crossing your fingers and hoping it goes well is not a strategy to seek a job you want.
