Beyond the Jacket: Professional Development Webinar Series
|To support the leadership pathways of alumni and corps members, we collaborated on a new professional development series with Bank of America called “Beyond the Jacket” – a set of interactive webinars designed to build knowledge, provide access to resources and strengthen professional development skills during and after their year of service.
Topics: Successfully managing your finances, Networking and building relationships, Managing Student Loan Debt, Preparing for homeownership
This is a great session for City Year AmeriCorps members approaching graduation or alumni who still don't quite "get" LinkedIn. If you think of LinkedIn as "Facebook for Finding Jobs" or an online resume, you’re missing out on the real impact of LinkedIn. LinkedIn is more than a placeholder for your professional experience or a networking site, but rather it’s a dynamic tool for sharing your brand and building career capital. Learn about the potential of LinkedIn with tips and insights from AmeriCorps Alums Career Coach Denise Riebman. Use LinkedIn to follow leaders in your field, find groups of like-minded professionals, deconstruct career paths and connect with relevant individuals and employers.
From the resume to application to interview, Erin Wike, City Year Chicago '01, and Career Coach at UT-Austin shares the best tips and tricks to being the best candidate for a job.
