03/26/14 MEETING: JOHANNA ROTHMAN on: Using PERSON KANBAN for your JOB HUNT
The venue is Building #3 of 130 Turner Street.
This is the same building that TIAA-Cref is in.
Job search is a task best addressed by Personal Kanban. Searching for a job is a big, complex, and scary prospect. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by a job search. Have you ever thought that agile or kanban can help? It can.
Personal kanban can help you manage your work, keep your WIP small, and visualize what to do. But personal kanban is not enough, even with purposeful reflection. A job seeker needs the growth mindsetthe agile mindsetto persist in building a target list and networking list.
Too many people don't realize how to network. You need an agile approach, that is: try a little something and getting some feedback to your networking. Building a targeted list requires knowing your purpose, knowing who your target list might be, articulating the value of your previous accomplishments, how to ask for feedback, purposeful reflection and the growth mindset.
In this workshop, we will work through an introduction to personal kanban, defining your purpose, your target list, an introduction to networking, and how to create rapport. Bring your notebook and a pen. You'll learn enough to use this session to network tonight and in the future.
