*Selling Your Liberal Arts Degree
Monday, Sept. 12, 6-7 p.m. PST

You can do anything with your liberal arts degree, right?  But where do you start and what are the career realities that you need to be aware of in order to position yourself with a potential employer?  With critical input from HR professionals and recruiters, we’ll discuss best practices for determining your transferrable skills and finding the right career opportunities.

*Guerilla Job Search
Monday, Sept. 19, 6-7 p.m. PST

LinkedIn, Facebook, craigslist or job boards?  How can you find the right jobs for your experience and interests?  It’s estimated that between 80 – 90% of open positions are never advertised.  This is especially true during a tight job market.  Learn how other recent grads have navigated the job search process – even with limited work experience. 

*Do I Really Have to Network?
Monday, Sept. 26, 6-7 p.m. PST

Willamette alumni will share their best networking strategies, including some advice on how to master the “informational interview” and leverage the Bearcat network (aka the Willamette Alumni Career Network) to help you get your foot in the door.  We’ll cover best practices so you’re confident networking virtually as well as in-person.  Excellent preparation for the October 17th networking events in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Honolulu, New York City and Washington, DC.  For more info about these events: www.willamettealumni.com/7citiesin2011

*Resumes, Cover Letters and Applications

Monday, Oct. 3, 6-7 p.m. PST

Is your resume and cover letter presenting you in the best light?  Do they highlight what’s unique and most marketable about you?  What should you include and what should you omit?   Come learn what a job application is really for and how to make sure that you’re not excluding yourself from the candidate pool.
