Speaker: Tammy Kabell of Career Resume Consulting

Topic: “Competing in all Eight Segments of the Job Market

With today’s competition, you need to plan on generating a lot of interest in your talents and promote yourself in as many market segments as possible.

Therefore, it’s important to understand that there are eight segments of the current job market, five of which are published, and three of which are unpublished. Most job seekers only use two or three of the eight segments available to them, which significantly limits their exposure to job opportunities.

Tammy Kabell of Career Resume Consulting will provide you with specific strategies for promoting yourself in all eight segments, strategies that have been highly successful for her clients transitioning to new senior level positions.
