Participant Testimonial:
"Lynn's personal branding workshop was great. I really enjoyed it and learned several new ways of distilling my experience. I was able to put some of it into practice the next day during a phone interview - I had a case story at the ready. I also enjoyed "Calling Cards" and have shared the exercise with two friends. I always find Lynn's input and advice to be so helpful."
 Featured Article  

Should Robots Be Conducting Job Interviews?

A.I. is playing a new role in hiring.

"Congratulations, you have been selected for an interview for the professional minigamer position at Open Mind Corporation," a robotic voice announces over a blank screen. "My name is Alex. I will be guiding you through the interview. The whole process will take no more than 10 minutes. Let's hear your voice. ... Smile for the camera. ... Welcome to the interview."

This is the start of An Interview With Alex, a dystopian online interactive experience taking viewers through a "job interview" conducted by an A.I. hiring manager-one that measures tone to score users on a "State of Mind Index." Carrie Sijia Wang, the multimedia artist behind the project, writes that her work is meant to "criticize the present by speculating about the future." But it's not that far off how your next job interview might look, if you're applying for high-volume, low-skilled roles (or even some high-skilled ones). A growing number of real-life recruiters are turning to A.I.-led job interviews, using programs that interview and assess candidates before a human recruiter even lays eyes on them.

2. Wine & Webinar: Your Website Homepage? It Isn't Your Homepage Anymore

As search engine result page (SERP) features become more intelligent and prominent, and voice search continues to grow, the age-old goal of "drive traffic to your site" is slowly being diminished. Rather, it's time to actually deliver on the promise of giving audiences the information they're looking for-where and when they're looking for it.

In this webinar, with speaker Laurel Miltner, you will:
  • Learn why Google SERPS are your new homepage, and how to tackle them holistically. (Hint: it's not just SEO)
  • Learn how schema markup, structured content, PR, and ethical and empathetic marketing combine to help you win today's search game
  • Get actionable tips on how to use topical keyphrase research and Google Analytics data to create high-ranking content that targets audiences with both commercial and informational intent
  • Find out how to actually track this stuff

It's a known fact that over 50% of job seekers obtain their next career opportunity through some form of networking

NSENG Founder/CEO, Marty Gilbert, will moderate 3 rounds of networking. The next day each registrant of this event will receive the name and email address of everyone who attended so that you can quickly gain 40-80 new LinkedIn connections. There will be virtual breakout rooms for each round of networking where in groups of 8-10 people, each individual will have a chance to share a bit about their background... mention any companies or industries that they are trying to pursue... and seek advice on specific job search challenges they may be encountering. It's often through these networking conversations that the following great results are achieved:
  • You could receive some warm introductions into target companies from other participants... introductions that you could never get on your own.
  • You may be made aware of job leads that other participants share with your breakout group.
  • You have a great opportunity to practice your elevator pitch and get some honest feedback.
  • You can learn about job search tactics that others have found to be very effective with their search.
  • You will gain several new LinkedIn connections by sharing your contact information with those in your group.
  • You will get some candid feedback or advice on job search challenges you may be encountering.
