Program

"Deciphering Job Descriptions"

A very frequent complaint among job-seeking professionals is that job descriptions often bear little resemblance to the role described by interviewers.   This can be due to any of several causes:

  • they’re out of date
  • they’re either very brief or contain every possible requirement HR and management could think of
  • there’s no indication of the most and least important requirements
  • the amount of experience they call for doesn’t match the stated  responsibilities
  • there’s an apparent mismatch between Responsibilities and Requirements
At WIND North on the 21st Fred Nothnagel will present and lead a discussion of these confusing and dangerous shortcomings, and will provide ways to clear away the fog and avoid making bad moves.
You’ll leave with
  • A deeper understanding of the most common “code words” employers use
  • Ways of identifying the most important requirements among a laundry list
  • How to use networking and published sources to make well-educated guesses as  to the employer’s most urgent needs
  • Rules of thumb to help you decide whether or not to apply
Come to WIND North on Wednesday the 21st and learn to avoid
  • applying for jobs you don’t fit
  • sending resumes that miss the mark
  • being blindsided at an interview
