“A Spring Tune Up For Your Job Search” is an opportunity for you to objectively review how well your current marketing plan is working.  Join Ian in this New Canaan Career Transition Support Group workshop to gain a better focus on the job search process you are using.  Even if you are achieving the results with the timing you have planned this is an opportunity to share some of your concerns with a career search professional who is plugged into the local market.  If you walk away with just one idea to improve your search it will have been well worth the investment of your time to attend.  About a year ago Ian ran a workshop for CaTS covering key points of the search process.  Ths workshop is an opportunity for you to ask questions about any of these areas listed below as well.
