Dr. Mercer’s Job Hunting Advice in @FlexJobs

Volunteering helps you meet new people, learn new skills, and get a better sense of the type of work you want to do. Michael Mercer, Ph.D., and author of Job Hunting Made Easy, recommends volunteering in strategic places.

“Volunteer to work registrations desk at associations and conferences related to the profession or industry in which you want to work.

Greet everyone with a big smile. Note which attendees are ‘big-shots’ – company executives, officers, etc. Then, after registration, sit next to those big-shots at speeches or seminars, strike up a conversation about THEM (not about you), and ask if you can contact them to get ‘career advice.’
