Cheers to A New Year & A New Career! (Coaching, Job Searching & Networking)

About this FieldTrip

Join in as Alexa Loken, founder and head coach of Loken Careers, talks through figuring out what you want to do “when you grow up,” how to switch careers, and when to reassess your current career path.

She’ll open with how to assess what you like and are good at while focusing on your valuable skills. Alexa will then move into how to effectively job search based on your unique strengths and interests using keywords and filters. She’ll also touch on how to most effectively network during COVID, as connections are the best way to gain information and land a new role. She’ll also share high-level resume and cover letter tips, based on current best practices and drawing on her experience as an entrepreneur, business professor, and corporate career coach.

The presentation will conclude with a 10 minute Q&A, so please bring any questions you have!
