The course includes (at no charge) a 223 page E-book manual and focuses on cutting edge strategies designed to help career oriented men and women find jobs ASAP in this very tough job market. Students work in teams of 8 to 10 designed to encourage each other, brainstorm ideas and hold members accountable for homework assignments. Strategies studied in the course include:

•Writing and implementing ROI focused industry reports
•In depth research strategies
•Writing and implementing targeted proposals

comes to mind for excellence in an industry and/or function

The course will be led by John Hall who was awarded Pepperdine University’s Orange County Alumni Association’s 2010 Waves of Service Award for his work with Orange County’s unemployed. John is a retired executive career coach with 21 years of experience helping management and professional individuals through job transitions and co author of the book Adapt! How to Survive and Thrive in the Changing World of Work. He was referred to as the “John Wooden of career Coaches” in the April 25, 2011 edition of Newsweek Magazine. Assisting John will be a team of experienced job transition coaches.
