Presented by: Vickie Austin, Speaker, Author, Business & Career Coach

For many people, the word “networking” conjures up images of forced conversations, dreary conferences or cold calls. They think of networking as drudgery, glad-handing or a necessary evil so they avoid it—to their peril.

“Circles of Gold®: How to Network for Career Success” is a presentation designed to give people in career transition simple, actionable formulas to help with the search. The Circles of Gold approach begins with identifying, then honoring the people you already know. By attending this presentation you’ll discover how to:

  • First define, then expand your network (you know way more people than you think)
  • Craft your message so people understand how they can help you, capturing their imagination so they’re eager to help you with your search
  • Create a “lather, rinse, repeat” campaign to sustain you on your job search while also having fun!

Vickie Austin is a business and career coach and owner of CHOICES Worldwide. She offers strategic planning to help people and companies get from where they are to where they want to be. Vickie is also a professional speaker, sharing topics on business and career success with audiences around the world.
