The Harris School of Business, a provider of career-focused training programs in the Delaware Valley, featured career readiness speaker Rick Sears in a three-hour seminar in which students learned about today’s best practices in job searching and career development.
Sears’s seminar focused on how students can make themselves more marketable. He shared tips and advice from the recruiting industry to help students understand the most effective strategies for job searching in today’s competitive market. The seminar, held at the Enterprise Center in Mount Laurel on Tuesday, attracted over 250 students training for careers in the healthcare industry.
Sears emphasized the importance of framing a job search around how the job-seeker can be of most benefit to the prospective employer. “Look for ways that you can show them a return on their investment,” Sears said. He pointed out the importance of highlighting measureable achievements. “Your resume is your brochure, and employers today buy results.”
Students reacted positively to Sears’s message. “Before I came to the Harris School, I wasn’t writing my resumes in the right way,” says Cyndi Brewington, a student in the Multi-skilled Health Technician program at the Voorhees location. “Since I have been back at school, I have learned more about writing resumes and how to network. This seminar has provided even more useful information about marketing myself.”
