Hack your Job Search

When you are looking for a job, the long wait for employers' replies and the disconnect between your actions and results may make it difficult for you to stay motivated. However, when you do get a response from employers, it can also be exhilarating and rewarding!

To make your job search process more productive, you can start by learning some hacks to maximise the use of your time and energy.

During this session, you will learn to:

  • Operate with higher levels of focus despite distractions and competing demands
  • Organise time effectively by defining and tracking personal metrics
  • Leverage online productivity tools to track your job search progress and focus your energy on the highest prospects
  • Identify high-value and high-priority job leads
  • Acquire strategies to maximise your networking efforts to create leads
  • Experience different project management methodologies (Kanban, Lean, Agile, Scrum) and emerging technologies/Artificial Intelligence (AI)
