Get in the Driver’s Seat of Your Job Search
On Monday, July 6, Vera Teller, Ph.D., a lecturer at California State University Dominguez Hills, will present “Tips and Techniques for the Job Search” at the Career Club. Dr. Teller will offer advice on the valuable lessons learned as a director hiring employees and teaching business communications particularly the tools and techniques required for the job search.
“The job search strategy is a proactive rather than passive activity,” Dr. Teller said. “With this approach, you are in the ‘driver’s seat.’ You are not waiting for an email or phone to ring.”
Dr. Teller is on staff at California State University Dominguez Hills as a lecturer in the College of Business Administration and Public Policy. Her professional career spans over 30 years’ experience in business, management, and information systems as director of systems and programming for Trader Joe’s Company and Safeway (Vons), consultant for EDS, and program manager for WellPoint. She has a Ph.D. and MA from the Fielding Graduate University in Human and Organization Development, an MBA from California State University, Los Angeles, specializing in business information systems and has certifications from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in data communications, microcomputer and LAN support. She is also certified as a project manager (PMI).
This PowerPoint presentation includes handouts. It is a good idea to bring a cover letter, resume, and stellar reference list. It is not required, but helpful if you have a copy.
