May 12, 2021
9:00 am - 11:00 am

What are the major differences looking for a job in Europe and in the US? The fact is on a broader perspective there is no major difference. We can use the same digital job searching platforms, and we can use Google to learn about the labour market. Still, many professional resumes will end up in the rejection pile. Why is that?

In this workshop you will get insight into following:
✓ Job searching in Europe vs. the US – Strategic differences
✓ How to design a resume to attract recruiters and hiring managers in EU
✓ How to communicate your value on LinkedIn
✓ Why networking is an important digital tool – It’s about proactivity
✓ Building a network in EU – Turning connections to referrals
✓ General dos and don’ts

A Q&A session will follow the webinar. Set up as follow:
• Webinar (1 hour, 9-10am) using Webinar jam
• optional Q&A Session (1 hour, 10-11am) using a Zoom Meeting (attendance for this session will be limited)
