Use authentic LinkedIn posts to help your job search
Presentation Date: June 4, 2019
Presenter Website: Life Story Coaching
Description: Do you read articles or watch videos on LinkedIn? People who can help you reach your career goals do.
We think of our LinkedIn profile as an alternative resume. It can also be a window that allows hiring managers and our peers to see us think and act. Do you walk your talk? Do you give and demand respect? Do you play well with others? Then it may be time to make your strengths visible online.
Professional Coach Matt Gagnon shows us how to to make the best use of LinkedIn posts to build a network that supports a job search or develops a business.
Have you been told that it takes special SEO programming, algorithm hacks, and paid premium services to reach people through social media? That’s not true.
Matt's approach is different. He encourages you to speak to what you stand for, value, and believe. "People want to connect with real people," he says.
Matt has built 70% of his coaching business using this strategy. He has grown a following of over 35,000 people on LinkedIn. Come learn how he did it and start putting your authentic self out there in your job search.
What, how, and when: Focus your job search
Presentation Date: May 28, 2019
Presenter Website: Peak Performers
Description: This week’s presenter, Myles Wallace, meets new job seekers every day. Many are unclear about what they want to do and have not planned how they’re going to get there.
Entry-level candidates tell him they can do "anything." Experienced professionals say they can do "everything."
This lack of focus presents one of the single biggest obstacles to finding employment.
This Tuesday at HIREDTexas, Myles Wallace will help you focus your job search by defining:
- What work are you looking for?
- How will you find it? What steps will you take?
- When will you take those steps?
You’ll take away a complete job search plan on just three small sticky notes.
The proactive and focused job search
Presentation Date: May 21, 2019
Presenter Website: Austin Job Seekers Network
Description: To find a job that fits you, you need to be proactive and focused.
What does it mean to be proactive? Proactive means creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened.
What should you be focused on? On choices you may be missing. In each job search, there are a lot of smaller decisions to make that determine how long your search will be and how well you will land.
Craig Foster provides more detailed answers to these questions.
He’ll explain what you can do to:
- Understand your competitive advantage,
- Get focused on what matters most to you, and
- Make decisions so you land well.
Behind the Curtain: Inside the Brain of the Interviewer
Presentation Date: May 14, 2019
Presenter Website: N/A
Description: Do you remember Dorothy’s first job interview in the movie The Wizard of Oz?
"I am Oz, the Great and Powerful! Who are you?"
"I -- If you please, I -- I am Dorothy, ...the small and meek. We've come to ask you --"
"Silence! The Great and Powerful Oz knows why you have come. Step forward, ..." *
It went downhill from there.
Much later, after the work was done, Dorothy and her team returned for another interview to negotiate their compensation. They almost didn’t get paid!
Luckily for Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Lion, and the Scarecrow, someone gave them a hint that helped them understand their interviewer.
Isaiah McPeak shows us what Toto showed Dorothy, a peek behind the corporate curtain to understand what’s really going on inside the minds of our interviewers and inside the organizations we want to hire us.

Say YES to yourself and destroy the NOISE!
Presentation Date: April 16, 2019
Presenter Website: Candy Barone International
Description: This week’s speaker, Candy Barone, has a question for you:
Are you playing at your highest and best level? Or, are you letting your excuses get in your way?
Do you wonder why that happens?
Do you realize that you might be self-sabotaging yourself from everything you want?
If you are, it's all due to your programming and mindset. Your monkey mind is getting best of you through the stories and beliefs you are carrying with you. Stories that aren't even yours and beliefs you don't even notice are creating massive roadblocks in your life.

Keep Breathing while Talking to Strangers
Presentation Date: April 2, 2019
Presenter Website: Everybody Up!
Description: There is power in making authentic connections with fellow humans.
Yet walking into a room of strangers can be difficult. Starting a first-time conversation with a complete stranger may be daunting. Some of us find networking to be intimidating, even paralyzing.
Let’s change that paradigm together. This interactive workshop approaches networking from a fun, informed perspective.
Melissa Love will share her tips to help you conquer your fear, book meaningful 1-on-1 meetings, and overcome obstacles that separate you from the people who can connect you to your next job.
