So far in this first season of The HR Bartender Show, we’ve been talking about what organizations will want to focus on in the future. Jim Stroud spoke about the future of talent. Chris Mullen discussed technology. And Alexandra Levit talked about career durability and skills development.
This episode is different because it’s focused on what you can do as an individual. Whether or not you’re looking for a new opportunity, it’s important to dedicate time to your career. In the past, we’ve often done this through networking at association meetings or conferences. But since we’re not traveling and meeting in-person, how do we still stay connected? Technology is part of the answer. And that will remain the case as we move forward.
In this episode, I’m delighted to speak with Hannah Morgan, a nationally recognized author, speaker, and job search strategist. She’s the author of the Career Sherpa blog, which is considered a top resource for job search, and “The Infographic Resume”, a step-by-step guide for creating a visual resume to get a hiring manager’s attention. And if her name sounds familiar, it’s because Hannah has shared her knowledge with us before. This article about what to do if someone plagiarizes your resume is one of my favorites.
One of the qualities that can help individuals get ahead in their careers is being able to thrive during times of uncertainty. I can definitely see organizations wanting to hire and promote people who are able to successfully manage their careers during tough times. Even though in-person networking isn’t happening right now, that doesn’t mean we can’t connect face-to-face. It does involve understanding technology and getting involved in virtual communities of interest.
