Local Career Practitioner Learns Cutting-Edge Career Management Strategies
BALTIMORE, March 15, 2012 – Nathan Adams, principal of First Impressions Resume Center in Indian Trail, was one of 150 career practitioners who attended the Career Thought Leaders Conference March 10–14 to learn foremost strategies for helping professionals and job seekers take control of their career.
With unemployment rates still stubbornly high and rapid changes in how companies source candidates, it is essential for both experienced and new career professionals to be fully equipped to help job seekers manage a full-throttle job search efficiently and effectively.
While resumes are still a must-have document for job seekers, they are only the tip of the iceberg. Conference speakers recommended that experts like Nathan become career communications managers who can equip job seekers with social media profiles, personal branded bios, electronic career portfolios and other next-generation documents.
Additional conference content focused on social media and online identity, two critical areas for success in today’s job market. Job seekers who contribute powerful, relevant content about their industry or area of expertise are more likely to attract recruiters, hiring managers and other professionals to their Twitter, FaceBook and LinkedIn pages than those who don’t.
The latest in coaching strategies were also presented by leading experts in career, job search, and executive coaching.
