Marketing BrandYOU!

Embarking on a job search or career change but feeling overwhelmed with where to start?  If you know you have excellent skills, ideal experience and incredible passion for your work but don’t know how to package yourself to effectively communicate your professional message, then attend “Marketing BrandYOU.”  This program will focus on how to maximize what you have to offer and how to present it to ensure you’re the candidate that rises to the top.  By attending this program you will:

  • Determine your skill set and learn how to leverage them in your job search.
  • Develop a resume and cover letter that effectively represent you and the value you bring to an organization.
  • Learn techniques to tap into valuable networks and increase your exposure to opportunities.
  • Learn interviewing techniques and negotiating skills.

The Realities of a Successful Job Search

Are you “in-between successes” or perhaps considering a job change?

Hear from a panel of hiring professionals including a career coach and a human resource director about what employers look for in potential applicants and what makes a candidate “stand out” from their competition. The panel will also include a professional who has developed a successful job campaign. Learn from those that have made a transition as they share their ideas and thoughts with you.

Writing an Effective Resume

What is considered an effective resume?  One that attracts the attention of hiring authorities, showcases your relevant work background, demonstrates you have the right qualifications for the job, and illustrates how you can benefit an organization.  Join Marshall as he reviews how to identify key work expertise and experiences and bundle them together to develop a resume projecting your unique professional niche. 

Myers Briggs Type Indicator

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which was designed to implement the theories of C. G. Jung, is an easy-to-use questionnaire for identifying our natural preferences and strengths.  The objectives of this workshop are to:

• Identify their own work or managerial preferences and how these preferences are similar and different from others on their team.

• Examine how these personality similarities and differences facilitate and block productivity.

• Develop and sharpen interpersonal skills that will heighten personal job effectiveness.

• Understand the basic differences between people, allowing them to work together while remaining comfortable with themselves.

Unleashing the Power of Coaching

Are you tapping into your full potential as an association executive? Need support working with key staff and leadership? Uncertain as to what strategic steps are next for your association? Want more control of where your career is headed?   This practical, hands-on learning session. You’ll see live coaching demonstrations that illustrate the numerous ways that coaching is critical for association professionals.  You will interact with professional coaches and association colleagues who are experiencing the power of coaching. You’ll walk away with a blueprint of how coaching can work for you as well as how to find the “right” coach for you and your organization.

Building Success Through Strong Networking

Even though job search networking is one of the most successful ways to find a new job, it can sound intimidating and sometimes seems a little bit scary. It doesn't have to be. "Who you know," but also "Who knows you" makes the difference. Career Networking is a skill set for overall career and life success. Your education, technical skills and experience will carry you only so far. This session looks at key strategies for developing personal business relationships that help you get things done, make connections and build a strong framework for your career success.

Rick Whelan"Marshall, again my personal thanks and that of the EF's for a job well done. Your after dinner comments were witty, thought-provoking and well received by all present.

The amazing thing to me is that you got a room-full of tired folks re-energized and engaged in a topic that, until you started talking, was not even officially the topic - LOL!

You are a true professional, a good friend and a really, really good speaker."

"On behalf of the Board of the ACP-Philadelphia, I wanted to let you know how much the group enjoyed your Friday March 12th presentation on branding.

The first two words I wrote during note-taking were, “enthusiastic”, and “engaging”. In addition to your knowledge, you have a knack for immediately becoming “one” with the audience and holding their attention. Your authenticity shone through.

Your recommendations regarding books, and the information about the 360 Reach assessment were takeaways we all value.

Once again, thank you for making an otherwise dreary Friday, a bright learning experience."

~ Helene Stockman-Baer
