JSM Career Coaching Offers Free Professional Development Teleseminar to US Embassy Communities
Julie Mendez, of JSM Career Coaching, is offering US Embassy communities a special opportunity to hold a professional development teleseminar in 2009.
Teleseminar choices include:
- Resolutions and Goal Setting: Creating Goals and Actually Completing Them
- Volunteerism on Resumes: How Helping Out Can Help You Out
- The “30-Second Commercial:” Give the Best Answer to the Question, “So, What Do You Do?”
- The Joy of Networking: Networking CAN be less of a chore and more fun!
- Finding and Dealing with Employment Opportunities Outside the Embassy Walls
All teleseminars last one hour and are live, interactive sessions. Arrangements must be made by the Community Liaison Officer, or other appropriate officer, at post. JSM Career Coaching will hold a session for as few as five and no more than twenty participants. The offer is good for one presentation per post only; Fees apply for additional seminars. (Posts should schedule their session by May 29, 2009.)
Julie Mendez of JSM Career Coaching offers resume, interview, and job search coaching services. She has more than five years in the executive search and recruitment industries, the most recent as a Branch Manager of a temporary placement agency in Washington, D.C. Her work experience also includes developing programs and initiatives to advance diplomatic spouses’ professional development and desire to work overseas and enhancing the quality of life for the US diplomatic community at U.S. Embassy Rome.
“As a former employment recruiter and U.S. Embassy Community Liaison Officer in Rome, I understand the diverse challenges and desires associated with finding professional development and work opportunities while overseas,” says Mendez. “I’ve developed teleseminars because they are an effective way to connect with people and empower them, regardless of our locations.”
Mendez’s “gypsy lifestyle” as a diplomatic spouse has given her insights into the special professional circumstances in which traveling spouses find themselves, and her client’s need to find not just a job, but the job. JSM Career Coaching’s mission is to empower clients by giving them the skills they need to land the job they want and deserve.
