"Cut The Check"
Career Preparation 4-Week Series
The first week of the “Cut The Check” series, we will be discussing the vision of all attendants. The goal of this is to ensure that we are seeking a position in which fits our interest and our experience thus leading to a successful career choice.
Dress & Etiquette will also be covered in week 1. In learning about choosing a good career based on each individual assessments, we will also discuss the proper attire for that particular career and learn appropriate work etiquette.
Week 2 of the “Cut The Check” series will consist of building a resume tailored to your specific background, education and experience. The resume is the center focus of seeking the career you truly want or can even be tailored for advancement within a current position.
Week 3 of the “Cut The Check” series will be “live” job searching and discuss FAQs about the application process, including background information requests. This week we will put what we’ve learned to good use and begin getting our resumes out or even applying to the advanced positions within our current organization/company.
Week 4 of the “Cut The Check” series will be where everything ties together! We will be preparing for our interviews and dressed appropriately for the interviewing process. In the second half of the class, we will be doing “live” interviewing, some perhaps even leading up to actual job opportunities.
