I pulled this off Facebook and want to make sure the many Michigan State University grads are aware that three MSU grads are offering an opportunity to increase job-hunting skills.

The free mid-Michigan area networking reception hosted by the MSU Alumni Association on Monday, April 20 will feature Molly Fletcher -- author of the book "Your Dream Job Game Plan - 5 Tools for Becoming Your Own Career Agent", Kevin Donlin, contributing co-author of “Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0”, and John Hill, Director of Alumni Career Services with the MSUAA.

The three will discuss proven job-search tactics, including
  • how to get hired using LinkedIn.com,
  • why your resume is not working (and how to fix it),
  • how to network without being a pest, and more.
This free event will be held at the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at MSU in Room 147. RSVP to John Hill at the MSUAA at hilljohn@msu.edu (please put date of the event in subject line) today.
