This presentation will go over these topics and more:

THINK EMPLOYER RATHER THAN YOUR RESUME!
Employers hire candidates who understands their practice and its unique challenges.
Competing on credentials alone rarely generates a job offer.
 
CONSIDER RELATIONSHIPS & BUILD RAPPORT!
Employers seek candidates who they like and trust.  Building rapport is key to finding the “right” job and succeeding in it!
