Session 7 - Topic: Job Search - Goal Setting
Looking for a job can be daunting, and even more so when coming back into the job market after a few years of absence.
Goal setting is important for identifying what you want to accomplish and what you have to do to get there. In this workshop, learn how to set goals for yourself that break up the whole process into small tasks that are manageable and will help you keep up the momentum. This kind of goal setting can help keep you motivated on the days when it's hard to get going. It will also help you get to the end result faster.
The workshop includes exercises that will get you started on how to set goals for your job search.
