Career Boot Camp 2009

*Join Us in New York for Career 2009 Boot Camp *

Anyone in career services knows that the worst job market in 30 years has created no small amount of anxiety in the Class of 2009. They’re concerned about what’s in store for them job-wise, how they’re going to launch their career and whether their major has adequately prepared them for such tough times.

Women For Hire has the answer: Career 2009 Boot Camp, an intensive, two-day program in New York City June 3-4 that's designed to teach new grads everything they need to know to launch their careers in this recession. The program is co-ed.

At Career Boot Camp 2009, grads will meet dozens of recruiters and industry executives from media, marketing, advertising, human resources, fashion, finance, green energy, health care, non-profits, technology and more.

They will come away with actionable tools and connections to launch their careers in the weak economy, including how the recruiting and hiring process works, contact information for employers they meet and a realistic idea of today’s job market.

*Pros will host seminars on:*

• Standing out from the competition, guarding your professionalism online, acing the toughest interview and nailing the follow up.

• Business etiquette, professionalism and networking, negotiating compensation, the inside scoop on hiring and what recruiters want.

Industry leaders from *ABC News, Avon, CBS, Ernst & Young, ESPN, Estee Lauder, Etsy, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York Times, Pfizer, Salvatore Ferragamo* and more will discuss career options and paths. Graduate school administrators will evaluate the pros and cons of getting post grad degrees in law, business and more.

Recent college grads will share the dirt on entry level positions and how to make a realistic transition from college to work, and the highs and lows of life on the job.
