Adwoa M. Jones Offers Powerful Strategies For Networking At Mashable Online Career Expo
Crystal Clear Interviews Founder & CEO shares game plan to turn 5 minute online chat into a job interview with nation's leading digital companies
WASHINGTON, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In this fiercely competitive job market, clicking the "apply now" button on virtual job boards isn't enough to get noticed.
Savvy job seekers know the key is to have a contact at the company.
"Networking isn't about who you know, it's about who knows you," says Adwoa M. Jones, Founder and CEO of Crystal Clear Interviews, a job interview coaching program teaching professional women how to interview for a job to get hired fast.
In the article published by Brazen Careerist, Adwoa M. Jones points out, "you no longer need to spend all day in a crowded hotel conference room waiting in line with hundreds of job seekers to speak with a tired recruiter for 30 seconds, someone who's likely to forget you the moment you walk away."
A former HR Manager turned internet entrepreneur, author, speaker and job interview coach, Adwoa M. Jones understands the limitations traditional job fairs place on job seekers, who have to travel in person to hand over a hard copy resume to meet that crucial contact.
Today, game-changing online career fairs offer opportunities to "meet, interview with and impress dozens of employers" and make that important connection, explains Jones.
However, Adwoa M. Jones advises applicants that "your five minutes will zip by fast so be strategic with those precious minutes."
She provides strategies for job seekers to maximize the opportunity including how to plan a virtual elevator pitch using the formula, "I help x individuals achieve xyz result" to quickly describe "who you are, who you help and how you help them."
As she explains, "the key is to describe not just what you do, but what you can do for them."
