The Opportunity Game: How to Present Yourself as an Ideal Job Candidate
George Tilson, Ed.D.
The purpose of this webcast is to provide you as a job seeker with key strategies for identifying and securing jobs that are custom-fit to your aspirations, talents, and support needs – jobs with bosses, co-workers and even customers who see how fortunate they are to have you as a member of their team. Finding that “right job” can be daunting for most of us, whether we have a disability or not; however, having a physical disability can certainly pose unique challenges. In this session, Dr. George Tilson will present the “3 Ps” to successfully attaining and retaining employment: "Prepare, Promote, and Produce." Under these categories, Dr. Tilson will discuss how to take an honest inventory of your skills, attributes and interests; identify your champions; seek out and research possibilities; network strategically, and determine/access effective accommodations, whether high, low, or no tech. Finally, ways of “packaging” your skills as a viable candidate and representing yourself ultimately as a valuable employee will be presented.
