3 lessons COVID-19 has taught us about remote work
Citi’s CEO, Michael Corbat, thinks productivity may suffer with long-term remote work. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg anticipates as much as half of Facebook’s employees will transition to working remotely over the next five to 10 years. Netflix’s Reed Hastings believes working from home is “a pure negative.”

Over the past nine-plus months, just about every major CEO has declared remote work the new way of the world, a necessary evil, or—less frequently—somewhere in between. And it’s not just CEOs. Since the start of the pandemic, my inbox has been filled with contributed pieces from thought leaders and experts which can generally fall into one of two categories: A) Why we can’t wait to go back to the office after the pandemic, or B) Why we’re never in a million years going back to the office post-pandemic.

3. JUNE 23th - "REDUCING STRESS, BURNOUT & CREATING A WINNING JOB SEARCH" - $20
The one question that no one can answer about your job search is: How long will it take to land your next career opportunity? That makes for a frustrating and very stressful experience. Add to this the fact that our world and the amount of information is changing rapidly and many of job seekers are struggling to keep pace. Over 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last two years. And for job seekers this can bring on a feeling of frustration and stress that can lead to burnout, health & family challenges. So what can you do to shift from merely surviving to THRIVING during your job search?

This webinar features motivational speaker, MICHAEL HAHN, who will address how you can leverage your time in transition by developing a different mindset that produces more positive results. The job search can be a very lonely journey but if you can channel your mind and your actions in the right way, you’ll get far more activity, you’ll exude a positive outlook and you will perform better during networking meetings and interviews. Some of the topics that Michael will cover include:

Learn how to “Design a Winnable Game” personally and professionally as you navigate to your next job opportunity.
Learn practical tools to metabolize stress during the challenges of a job search.
Discover how to “Assume Positive Intent” in the face of change, uncertainty and rejection.
Realize the essential habits to shift from surviving to THRIVING.
After Michael’s presentation, we will have a round of virtual networking where small group breakout rooms will be created and you will have an opportunity to share a bit about your background and companies of interest to you. People often leave these networking sessions with warm introductions into firms that they otherwise can’t get into on their own.

Date: Wed June 23, 2021
Time: 7:00-8:45 PM CST

4. JUNE 24th - "DON'T LET YOUR PAST SABOTAGE YOUR FUTURE" - FREE
There are not many job seekers who have a perfect job history. In fact, often it’s not the most qualified person who gets hired, it’s the candidate who packages themselves and interviews best. During this session, we will discuss the following:

• How to handle problem areas on your resume or CV during interviews
• The importance of your accomplishments
• How to overcome objections

The lines will be open to address your questions following the training presentation.

Date: Thursday, June 24th
