  How to Define Your True Value and Sell it to Your Target Market:  Featuring John Boyd - Career Webinar
  June 4, 2014 8:00 PM ET
John is the author of the book, The Illustrated Guide to Selling Yourself. You have a lot to offer to organizations. However, if you are like most people, you don't feel comfortable bragging about your capabilities and selling yourself. It could be because you are one of the 60% of the population that, according to the Stanford Shyness Clinic, considers yourself shy. Or it may be you just don't know how to highlight your achievements. Attend this presentation to learn a process to present yourself to sell yourself-- without selling yourself!

John will present on the right way to present your skills, accomplishments, awards and activities in the most positive framework.
We are excited to offer again this webinar series featuring career trade book authors. Over 600 UR community members participated in this program last year as they sought to keep their knowledge and skills for career management and job search honed for the new expectations and requirements of today’s professional.

So much has changed as the Internet and Social Media websites continuously and drastically shift how hiring managers find and tap possible employees. Beyond basic skills in networking, interviewing and resume writing, professionals need to understand Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn and build a “personal brand” and manage your career as an entrepreneur manages a small business.

It’s easy, it’s free. Live webinars are offered on the first Wednesday of each month (except January, when it's the second Wednesday). You register only once and gain access to the full series of presentations from the nation’s top career authors and experts right on your computer, tablet or smart phone.
