MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Many job seekers in the millennial generation need to focus more on face time and less on screen time for success in finding jobs. Millenials are invited to learn how and why and gain valuable job search, networking and interviewing skills at the "You're Hired!" job search seminar, Tuesday, Feb. 16, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Securian Financial Group, St. Paul. Sponsored by North Star Resource Group, the event is free. Call 612-617-6074.
With 70 percent of all jobs found through networking(1), many job searchers in the millennial generation are missing opportunities. Most millenials rely on the internet and job postings to find open positions or are spending nearly all of their time on web networking sites liked LinkedIn and Facebook.
"People are fooled into thinking that that's networking," said Michael Goldberg, adjunct professor at Rutgers University and founder of Building Blocks Consulting, who will lead the seminar. "People need to keep in perspective that online resources are just a small part of it. You need to know how to use those great online tools with face-to-face interactions and phone interaction."
North Star Resource Group, seminar sponsor, is a Minneapolis-based financial services firm that helps individuals and businesses create, preserve and protect their wealth. It is one of the few financial services firms in the industry that primarily recruits directly from college campuses and has one of the highest retention rates in the industry.
