Knox College Alumni Association Career Management Community
Have you noticed how much the job search process has changed?
The Internet and social media websites have drastically changed the way hiring managers find employees.
While you still need to have basic skills in networking, interviewing, and building a credible resume, today you must have an understanding of how to use Twitter to find jobs before they are posted, as well as know how to use Facebook and LinkedIn to expand your personal network. To help you build a successful career and job search strategy, we have introduced an Alumni Career Speaker Series that will deliver the nation's top career authors and experts right to your computer for live webinars.
All you need is a computer, smart phone, or tablet to participate. You can also join an ongoing discussion about careers, career opportunities, and ideas with classmates and fellow alumni.
Building a successful career starts with having the right job search skills. Join us and continue your commitment to make the next job search faster, easier, and more productive!

The Alumni Career Speakers Series is made possible by the generous support of Nancy Barrick Carlin '72.
