  • Not just job search.WORK has changed.CollaborationCommunicationCross-cultural understandingNo one will ever “train” you to use technology ever again!Not just the pace – it’s how things get done
  • Moving from a linear environment to chaos and inconsistency
  • It’s not going to happen that way.Networking is how it will happen. From now until the end of your career. Get used to it.Start keeping track of your contacts – online and offline. You can’t have the whiff of resistance if you want to compete in today’s job market.Companies don’t know what’s next, they need someone who can roll with the punches -competition used to happen in the executive office -now a random tweeter can become the “face of the company” and effect a turnaroundYou have 3 choices:Wait for something that resembles what you had (and risk losing time, money or never finding it)Go off on your ownGet in the game. Get energized by the digital age!
  • Don’t EVER stop doing this.Sharing and research.
  • LinkedInConnect with ColleaguesFind someone who can refer me for a specific position at a specific companyJoin Groups (active participation)Research Target CompaniesWrite and seek recommendationsShare my status and NEXT STEPSTwitterFind folks to followIdentify professional area of interest/expertiseUse Twitter appsFollow potential employersFacebookStay connected with close friendsSeek and give supportBecome a fan of potential employersSlideshareShare existing or new presentationsResearch, research, research
  • We’re going to dive deeply in LinkedInAnd glance at twitter but before moving forward, let’s talk about the elephant in the roomWho feel anxious and uncomfortable? Deal with Ambiguity
  • Make them come back for more!
