A common mistake made by job seekers is casting a net that is too wide. In this webinar, Karen Dowd, Ph.D. (Educ ’93) will focus on the plusses of conducting a search that is geographically specific.

Karen will share tips on:

  • Selecting a city (or cities) in which to conduct a job search
  • Finding resources to explore career options in a particular geographic area
  • Developing or expanding your network in your selected area
  • Generating leads in your target location
  • Using on-line resources and databases in your job search
