OU Job Board to Present ‘People in Transition’ Webcast, July 18

17 Jun 2011


In basketball, transition refers to a team going over from offense to defense or defense to offense. Coaches have devised plays of great complexity to turn transition into points. In the world of work, transition refers to changing fields of employment. It too has its complexities, and often help is needed to produce a score.

To provide that assistance, the OU Job Board | Employment and Resumé Opportunities Wall Street Initiative will present the webcast, “Basic Goals for People in Transition,” with the job search expert Alex Freund. The program will be shown live via webcast or in person at Orthodox Union Headquarters in New York on Monday, July 18 at 5:30 p.m. EDT.

Upon registration at www.oujobs.org, the link to the webcast will be emailed.

“Alex is one of our top presenters and people coming to his seminars experience a wonderful and uplifting time,” declared Michael Rosner, Director of the Job Board. “Alex is focusing on the core problem today of people in transition and under-employment. His insightful approach is sure to change one’s way of approaching this phenomenon and to making the process easier.”

The presentation will include practical advice to such questions as:

• Who are the people who can really help you?

• Are your expectations aligned with reality?

• Do you know how to dramatically increase your chances for an interview?

• Do you know how to prepare for the coveted interview?

• What resources should you use to check out your potential boss?
