“Earn Your Worth,” presented by Absolutely Abby

The best day of your job search may be the day your favorite company calls to offer you the job.  To get to that day, a number of steps need to be completed much earlier in the search process.Abby Kohut

The challenge is these steps are rarely taught, so you end up learning through trial and error. Absolutely Abby will put you in the driver's seat by sharing the Absolute truth and exposing secrets about:

 

  •      Filling out salary questions on applications and in cover letters
  •      Answering salary questions on phone screens and during interviews
  •      Determining your worth in the market
  •      Negotiating an offer or better yet, multiple offers

 

If you want to stop leaving money on the table, you owe it to yourself to attend this event. Take control of your career today!
