In a highly competitive marketplace, where Masters and Doctorate degrees are more common than ever, people can no longer rely on an outstanding education to be the cornerstone to landing the job you want.
Desirable employers know that education alone does not guarantee employee success, so they are digging deeper with sophisticated recruitment tools to look for someone who is going to fit in well with the organizational culture, is reliable and will bring their passion and strengths to work each day. So how do people succeed in a job market that is highly competitive and succeed in rigorous screening processes?
A.T. Polgar Associates has developed Career Wise — a 2-day workshop that consists of 3 parts:
Completed standardized tests and qualitative data identifies areas of significant potential within each attendee and helps them greatly understand their behavior characteristics. This is what employers are screening for. Through this process, instructor Alex Polgar helps to identify areas of strength, areas of improvement and devise a plan of action that can be taken in order to be a more well-rounded applicant and employee. At the end of the workshop, each attendee receives an in-depth personalized, quantitative and qualitative profile that objectively outlines who you are. This customized profile becomes part of your employment application giving you an advantage over others applying to the same position since it tells hiring manager or human resources professional what type of person you are as well as your stellar competencies. Objective measures of your strengths, competencies and cognitive developmental perspective will provide employers far more information than your resume, thereby increasing your odds of being invited into the selection process. Perhaps even more importantly you will have the opportunity to understand yourself better and becoming a more confident interviewee. Click for dates and pricing.
Workshops are scheduled for the second Thursday and Friday of each month. To ensure attendee success, space is limited to 10 participants per workshop.
