Just Who Is Susan Strayer?

March 2nd, 2007

Susan Strayer: The Right Job, Right NowSusan Strayer is one of my newer friends. Who is she? She’s finishing an MBA, an experienced HR professional, author, blogger, and special guest in the teleseminar series that I am co-sponsoring with CollegeRecruiter.com. She’s also going to be on Oprah and Friends on XM radio on March 9thway to go Susan!

I first heard Susan share her message on a radio show and was really impressed. Her 10ish years in HR, and her experience coaching professionals and executives really came across on the call as she was quizzed on all kinds of subjects. I’ve had the honor to be on both teleseminar calls with her, and she is right on target. If you have about 50 minutes (or an iPod), you’ll want to check out this podcast that we had on Wednesday night. Here is official recording of the first topic: Help! I Still Don’t Know What Kind Of Career I Want!

The next two topics are still open for registration… I encourage you to register, put in a question or issue that you face, and then call in for any of these teleseminars :)

How do I start my job or internship search? — Wednesday, March 14 at 8:00 p.m. EST or Monday, March 26 at 8:00 p.m. EST

How do I prepare to start my new job or internship? — Monday, April 9 at 8:00 p.m. EST or Wednesday, April 25 at 8:00 p.m. EST

Make sure to register so that you can participate (ask your specific questions)… Click here to register!

… all of these will be recorded and available to you via podcast.

Some thoughts from the first topic that we just had:

  • What to do before you write your resume (has to do with a model you need to go through)
  • How to network (how to get started, “what do you say first?”)
  • Can shy people network?
  • Resume tips (from an HR perspective, how to format the resume, etc.)
  • Who should you talk to? Who should you not talk to?
  • How much work goes into a job search (treat it like a project) – and an excellent tool to help manage it 😉
  • … and more!

Check out the podcast (sorry, no cool music to start or end it)… and sign up for the next one :)
