Job search can be isolating and lonely. It’s up to you to find colleagues who can help guide you through the process.
This is why, each week, I share articles and information to help job seekers feel less alone and more informed.
I participated in an event to help Ukrainian HR professionals this week (see link below). These talented and strong men and women are looking for jobs in the midst of a war. If you know of remote HR opportunities, please get in touch with me.
In this week’s summary, you will find information on:
- Networking for introverts
- Warning about LinkedIn’s Resume Assistant
- Improving your LinkedIn home feed
- A job search newsletter
- How to highlight transferable skills
If you enjoy any of these, please follow the author and/or share with your colleagues.
