Description: More than 80% of jobs are filled outside of job postings and recruiters. These “hidden” jobs go to the people who get in front of decision-makers early before the hiring process officially starts. Learn how you can be one of those first-movers. Hear what happens behind-the-scenes in the hiring process from Caroline Ceniza-Levine, a former recruiter who has hired thousands of people for leading firms in banking, consulting, media, non-profit, pharma/ biotech, and technology. Learn strategies to find the decision-makers, engage them with your unique background, and then stay “front-of-mind” to the real end of the hiring process (hint: the search doesn’t end at the offer).
Bio: Caroline Ceniza-Levine, career and business expert, writer, speaker and co-founder of SixFigureStart®, works with people who want to make a change – from individual contributor to leader; from one career to a new one; from employee to entrepreneur. Prior to coaching and training, Caroline spent 15 years in strategy consulting, executive search and HR. Caroline is a repeat guest on CBS, CNN and Fox Business and has been quoted in BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Money, Newsweek, NPR, Real Simple, and Success Magazine. Caroline is a career contributor for Forbes.com and the co-author of 2 books: “Six Steps To Job Search Success” (2011, Flat World Knowledge); and “How the Fierce Handle Fear: Secrets to Succeeding in Challenging Times” (2010, Two Harbors Press). She teaches Professional Development, Resilience and Negotiation courses at Columbia University and received a grant from the Jones New York Empowerment Fund for her work with the mid-career professional. Caroline is also a stand-up comic, so she’s not your typical coach.
