Date/Time: Tuesday, July 16, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm PT
Presenter: Chris Arnold, Clinical Director of the Provincial Networking Group Inc. (PNGI)
In this webinar, Chris Arnold will discuss how networking and building relationships with employers is a crucial part of any successful employment development process. So often a career development practitioner’s focus naturally centres on the individual looking for work. Sometimes this ends up not putting enough focus on the potential employer(s). Networking and the development of relationships with employers should be an intentional and ongoing part of the job for career development practitioners. The challenge can be in how we achieve this. This workshop will highlight the need and value of building relationships with employers, but will also get into the practical “How-To” with a number of specific strategies and stories of how PNGI has been successful with this.
What you will learn from this webinar:
- Why employers and your relationship with them are an important part of the employment service mixture.
- How do I network and build relationships with employers?
- Specific networking strategies to consider.
