Workshops have the most benefit when they are designed for each candidate group based on industry, function, location and market conditions. Accordingly, we do a lot of behind-the-scenes preparation to ensure a meaningful program for each group. This preparation includes:
- Lists of recruiters, personnel agencies and temp agencies.
- Lists of companies in comparable industries in proximity to the candidate's target area.
- When appropriate, sample resumes similar to candidate profiles.
- State and local agencies geared to help job-seekers in transition.
- Lists of newspapers with news about local companies and job listings in the candidate's target area.
- List of chambers of commerce.
