Searching for L&D jobs offers unique challenges. Who best to help you meet them than other L&D Professionals?

We'll discuss resources, resumes, interviewing, networking, LinkedIn and answer your questions.

This week's meeting will focus on How to leverage your values to get the job you’ll love:

Savvy organizations view their culture as a strategic advantage. A huge shift has occurred in the way they search, interview, and hire candidates for “culture fit”. They now go far beyond evaluating skills and experience in their decision-making. You must also be able to demonstrate that your values are aligned to their organization’s values. These values define what’s most important in HOW people work together, and fundamentally define their culture. Making it through the culture fit gauntlet is essential to land the job. You will gain a significant advantage if you can articulate your values, and back them up with specific examples on the difference they made to your decision-making and performance.
