Unemployment may be high, but all companies are hiring if you have the right conversation. Dale Callahan, Ph.D., author of Resumes are Worthless, discusses how to uncover hidden job opportunities during the next Small Business Lunch & Learn program on Monday, August 6, from noon to 1 p.m. at the main library.
"Now Hiring, All Companies" will be presented in the second-floor events room. Admission is free. Bring a sack lunch. Drinks will be provided.
Dale Callahan sees the employee/employer model in a state of flux. Those looking for jobs and careers the old-fashion way are set for great amounts of frustration and instability. He argues that the only hope is to operate like a company of one - learning to behave like an entrepreneur even if you work for a Fortune 100 corporation.
Callahan is the director of the Information Engineering and Management graduate program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Learn more about him and his work from his blog at www.dalecallahan.com.
