Local Career Practitioner Learns Cutting-Edge Career Management Strategies
HOUSTON TX, March 31, 2010 – Debbie Ellis, President of Phoenix Career Group, Houston TX, was one of 150 career practitioners who attended the 2010 Career Thought Leaders Conference & Symposium at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Baltimore, March 22-24, to learn cutting-edge career strategies, trends and solutions to help their clients take control of their careers.
With unemployment rates at historic highs and rapid changes in how companies source candidates, it is essential for both experienced and new career professionals to be fully equipped to help job seekers manage a full-throttle job search efficiently and effectively.
While resumes are still a must-have document for job seekers, they are only the tip of the iceberg. Speakers urged career experts like Ms. Ellis to become career communications managers who can equip job seekers with social media profiles, personal branded bios, electronic career portfolios and other next-generation documents.
Additional conference content focused on social media and online identity, two critical areas for success in today’s job market. Job seekers who contribute powerful, relevant content about their industry or area of expertise are more likely to attract recruiters, hiring managers and other professionals to their Twitter, FaceBook and LinkedIn pages than those who don’t.
Ms. Ellis, a Master Resume Writer, specializes in high-impact career management strategies and powerfully branded documents and personal messaging for senior managers and executives. You can read her blog at www.phoenixcareergroup.com.
