Who is hiring now? How can I shift careers without downsizing my salary? Is a one-page resume still the rule? Where do I even start my search? As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to upend the job market, the WSJ Jobs Summit will provide new graduates and workers trying to get back in the game—or reinvent their skillset—with a modern toolkit to navigate this competitive market.
Through interviews and interactive workshops with leaders across business, we’ll look at the workforce landscape from multiple angles, including:
An assessment of the job market by the numbers, and what it means for you
Practical, tactical advice from companies in hiring mode
A playbook preparing you for a productive hunt, online interviews, overcoming setbacks and effective negotiation
"Interesting ideas and perspectives from industry thought leaders, things job seekers can actually put into practice. Refreshing to hear they know the search is difficult!"
"I enjoyed the ability to hear from successful individuals with a wealth of knowledge. It is an especially hard time to be a college senior who is about to enter the job search. I also enjoyed connecting with other attendees!"
"As someone who has attended many career-oriented events in the past I was afraid this experience would be very repetitive, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the information shared."
