Women Lead Webinar Series

Exclusively for Premium Access Pass members

The single hardest part of the modern job search is getting an interview.  The only predictable way to get an interview is to network, but “network” is frustratingly vague. How exactly do you network so that it leads to interviews?

In this webinar, The 2-Hour Job Search author and Duke MBA career consultant Steve Dalton shares his set of instructions – rather than a series of tips – for effectively turning strangers into advocates, leading to more knowledge, more advocacy, and more job interviews. This session proposes an efficient alternative to hopelessly applying to online job postings, essentially turning “networking” from a disjointed list of tips into a finite and replicable recipe.

To create his process, Dalton drew upon the latest scientific advances from fields ranging from behavioral economics to operations theory to social psychology to split networking into its three component parts—Prioritize, Contact, and Convince—and optimize each in turn. Attendees of this webinar will learn to harness free and simple technology to get the right job (or promotion, or new client…) faster and more authentically than ever before.

The webinar is presented by:
