Changing Your Mindset from Hopeful to Hired

Adam Dince Hopeful to HiredAt the next Social Media Breakfast Central MN on Thursday, March, 23, author Adam Dince will share his insight into finding employment and candidates in today’s job market. Adam will help change the mindset of simply being hopeful, to hired! The secret lies in using college years as an opportunity to build professional networks, improve soft-skills, and create an effective online personal brand, so that students can hit the ground running after graduation. The opportunities for employers are to understand how candidates are preparing to fill your positions, where to find them, and how to effectively reach out and groom relationships that can later be mutually beneficial. In this interactive talk, based on Adam’s book, “Hopeful to Hired”, you will learn why college students need to change their mindset from hopeful to hired, tips on how to develop and optimize professional soft skills while in college (something employers need to see in a great candidate), how to start building an effective professional network while in college, and tips on building a meaningful professional online presence.

Who should attend?

  • Students looking to be proactive in finding a position in their field after graduation
  • Businesses and organizations looking to fill positions with qualified candidates
  • Parents and educators looking to help guide students toward decisions that will help them get hired
