"Mom Corps, a national award-winning professional talent acquisition and career development firm, has launched Mom Corps YOU, an online community to help professionals better integrate their professional and personal lives."
"When looking to re-enter the work force or increase your hours from part-time to full-time, making a strong first impression in person and on paper helps get you off on the right foot with potential employers. Mom Corps YOU offers tools to help you revamp your resume, build a personal brand, answer questions about time out of the workforce, find a position that will work with your flexibility needs, and reignite your career."
Like I shared in my Mom Corps YOU post last month, I missed an April webinar about personal branding. But, because they record and archive their speaker's talks, I was able to watch it at a later, more convenient time. I am so glad I made time to watch this webinar in its entirety because I learned so much.
HOW TO BUILD YOUR PERSONAL BRAND
"Personal brand is what people say about you when you leave the room. In this webinar, job seekers learn why a personal brand is important, how to get started defining your personal brand, a simple framework to approach personal branding and ideas to act on immediately following the webinar."
I was left with homework after this webinar, and have to say it really made me take a step back when I was trying to answer the different questions posed, to help define my personal brand, which one continually has to work at and improve. I liked how you the speaker, Renee Spurlin, who is also the Marketing Director for Mom Corps YOU, kept reminding you to "BE Consistent, Relevant, Interesting, Professional, YOURSELF." Out of all the recent Mom Corps YOU webinars I have participated in, I have to say that this one was really motivated me and make me think about how I want to portray myself when the time comes to re-enter the workplace, but also right now, while being a blogger and working with different companies and vendors.
During the month of May, Mom Corps YOU has been offering and has some amazing great speakers lined up, to help those looking to re-enter the workplace. From helping you prepare for making a good first impression, to dressing right for your interview, and even preparing your resume on social media (a webinar I signed up for that will be taking place on May 22nd online), Mom Corps You is here to help women feel more confident about returning to the workplace after taking time off to raise their family, or entering it for the first time.
I am super excited about Eboni's upcoming webinar and know I will gain some amazing insight into utilizing my Linkein and Twitter contacts to help me in my upcoming job search.
Maybe your family has suffered financial hardship you need to help by finding a job. Do you know where to start? Is your resume (if you have one) up-to-date? What about dressing for an interview? What are people wearing nowadays, and what is considered professional enough, especially for a first interview and first impression?
Leave it to the folks at Moms Corp YOU and their amazing guest speakers and online resources, to help make your entry into the workplace a little less stressful, while also giving you a leg up on the competition thanks to their tips and resources made available to members of this wonderful online community.
