Presentation

"Manage Your Time and Accelerate Your Search"

Time management is a critical skillset, especially for professionals in transition.  Each day shaved off your time between jobs can mean hundreds of dollars.

But without the structure we’re used to at work, many people waste time in ineffective and inefficient activity.  Worse yet, they succumb to other people’s demands on their time or to distractions.

This coming Wednesday’s WIND North program will address these difficulties and provide tips that will multiply both your effectiveness and efficiency.   You will learn how to structure and organize your search campaign so that your energies and time are focused on doing what’s important efficiently and at the right time.

Specific topics will include:

  • Setting up an “office” and a flexible routine
  • Focusing on the important
  • Using Technology to Streamline Your Search
  • Weekly Planning
  • Periodic Evaluation and Course Correction
  • Taking Care of Your Greatest Resource – Yourself
You’ll leave with
    *    Many tips and tactics that will make you more productive
    *    A weekly planning template that serves as a time allocation tool, a tool for setting  QUANTIFIED goals for each activity, a measurement tool to evaluate your success and make necessary adjustments to succeeding plans.
