JSWT - Back by Popular Demand
We're starting back up the job search work team (JSWT) because so many people said it helped them to find their ideal job quickly. This time we're going to use a new teaching technique called MOOC. A massive open online course (MOOC) is a model for delivering learning content online to any person who wants to take a course, with no limit on attendance.
This is a free course, but you have to buy/download the recommended book to follow along. We'll make recordings available to walk you through the course material. And since it's a team effort, we'll use modern technology to share notes, comments, feedback and leads on job opportunities.

Date: Tuesdays, starting February 16, 2016
Time: 8:00 pm Central, 9:00 Eastern
