Beginning with its Wednesday morning meeting on January 4, the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry in Allen, TX will kick-off the new year with a new career marketing workshop titled Discovery: Career Marketing. Discovery follows a traditional marketing process because everyone who is looking for a job is in a marketing role whether they realize it or not. Discovery is designed to help make participants competent and comfortable in the role of marketing themselves. At the January 4 session, Jack Bick, a Certified Career Coach practicing in Collin County, TX, and the Discovery creator, will present an overview of the new career marketing workshop. A panel of newly hired workers who will share their insights into how they successfully marketed themselves to land their latest jobs will also be featured at this first Career Alliance session of 2017.
"Career Alliance believes a constructive approach to kicking off the new year is to spotlight actual job landing success stories," said Jack Bick, who is also the former publisher of the Dallas Business Journal and Inside Collin County Business, now the Collin County Business Press. "The feedback provided by some of these new hires was directly incorporated into this new series of workshops. We're presenting this two-part program at our January 4 session to help the participants get ready to successfully market themselves in 2017."
The Discovery curriculum is designed to help participants develop skills that will enable them to continuously move their careers forward. The Discovery workshop strives to guide participants out of their "comfort zones" to enable them to personalize each job search step to win their desired job.
The St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry will present the Discovery: Career Marketing workshop 9:00 AM to noon each Wednesday for six consecutive weeks beginning on January 4 in the Lecture Hall at St. Jude Parish in Allen, TX. The specific topics to be addressed each week are:
