Tuesday November 18th 11am CST: The Best Interview Strategy for Results with Donna Fedor

Webinar Registration: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/823317489

I hear the excitement when people say, “I have an interview!” Everything it takes to get to this important point in the job search, all of the work and effort of finding your target, planning, knowing your unique value, networking, writing your resume, finding the ideal positions, sending your resume, following up….and now…. you have an interview!

Preparation takes time. You have to know what kind of research to do about the company and the role, and it takes practice so you are clear about what you want to cover in the interview. Bottom line, you must be mentally and physically ready if you want to do well in the interview.

An “interview strategy” is simply your “game plan” of what you’ll cover in the interview so that you are efficient in what you say during your time with the interviewer. Your game plan  includes the absolute best things you could share about yourself on the interview.

– A look at franchise ownership
– Misconceptions about franchising

Stop climbing the corporate ladder, and create one! If you’re considering business ownership, it’s essential to use the best available resources so you can get it right the first time. At FranNet, we use an established, proprietary process to match a person’s talents and goals with the right franchise choice. In a recent study we conducted on clients we’ve placed into business, we found that:

– More than 85% of our clients are still open after five years
– Nearly 15% of our clients are top performers in their franchise
– These are all “Best in Class” numbers for our industry

There are other franchise brokerage-type services out there, but what makes FranNet unique is how we look at your career options first, and then jointly decide if business ownership is the right option for you. All of our consultants are locally based and bring face-to-face attention to your needs so that we’re personally there for you every step of the way. And perhaps the best part is that our services are completely free to you throughout.

 

Thursday November 20th 1:00pm CST: Finding the Right Business for Baby Boomers

Webinar Registration: http://www.opportunityladder.com/career-training/online-seminars

Americans are growing older, living healthier and living longer. And older Americans are capitalizing on business like no other generation.  A recent study by the Kaufman Foundation found that in every single year from 1996 to 2007, more Americans between the ages of 55 and 64 started a new business venture than those aged 20-34.  This is a trend that only looks to increase as long-term employment has fallen dramatically for people ages 35-64 over the past fifty years.

And according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, life expectancy increases about one month every year.  As the American population ages, more and more older adults are looking toward self-employment business opportunities in which to invest and create long-term, sustainable assets.  FranNet seeks to aid older adults who are looking for their next career or investment opportunity.

FranNet sees the promise of entrepreneurial older Americans and seeks to ensure every opportunity to pursue business ownership is explored.  This free, one-hour webinar will help you understand the business opportunities available and discover if business ownership is for you.

During the webinar, we’ll cover:
• The advantages to start a business.
• Impact of small business in the U.S.
• A look at franchise ownership.
• Misconceptions about franchising.
• Building your personal business model.
• How to easily find the right franchise.

It is essential to utilize the best available resources effectively and get it right the first time.  FranNet uses an established, proprietary process to match a person’s talents and goals with the right franchise choice.  And perhaps the best part? Our services are completely free.  Because we work more like an executive recruiter, the franchisor pays our fees if we make a match.

Friday November 14th 10:00am CST: Shifting for Success in your Job Search with Donna Fedor

Webinar Registration: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/812566225

Shifting your thinking may be one of the hardest things you will ever do, especially when you’re coping with a change that you don’t want. However, you must shift your thinking because until you do, you’re giving all of your power away.

Thankfully, it is our choice how to respond in any given situation.  It is our choice where we put our focus, attention, energy, resources and time. Each and every one of us can let go of all that no longer serves us and take our power back. We simply need the tools that will allow us to separate our emotions.

We are going to be dealing with the angst you may be feeling about your job search, lay-off, the economy, the news, the people in your life and anything else that you may be thinking about in a way that limits what is possible.

Tuesday August 19th 11am CST: Re-THINK! The Brand Called “YOU”: Your Personal Branding Session with Donna Fedor

Webinar Registration: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/599869296

What if you were what every company wanted? What if you were the perfect brand?

It’s crucial when you interview for a job to be able to distinguish yourself from every other candidate. Your part in the interview is to articulate why they should hire you. Who are they hiring? What is your character, track record, and reputation? What can they count on? Through a series of questions, they hope to get to know you.  Bottom line: they hope you are the one.

This is an area where many people struggle. We first must learn how to relate to ourselves in a positive way. We first must learn how to deal with all the negative thoughts that are present in our “mental chatter”, clouding our ability to see our full value.
