 The Toughest Thing about Finding a Job
Presented by: Larry Apke, Founder and CAO - Chief Agile Officer, The Job Hackers

Registration for this online event is limited to 100 attendees. Register for the event as usual. We'll send you the meeting link and password after registration closes at 8 pm the evening before the event.

Abstract: Larry Apke is the co founder of The Job Hacker. The Job Hackers is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people get good jobs through training and placement assistance. Larry has trained over 750 students with his The Agile MBA course.

Larry knows first-hand as to what it is like to be a job seeker and what it really takes to be a successful job seeker. No one really tells you what other skills you may need to help you through this process. It is not just about sending the perfect resume out, but about really understanding what psychological changes you are going through during this process. He will be speaking about dealing with rejection and self doubt and also a few ways to help you overcome that feeling of isolation. For some people losing their job is in a sense losing their identity and Larry will be speaking to us about how we can change that mindset.

Larry Apke has been working in software development for over 20 years with the last 10+ years involved with Agile software development. His consulting experience includes time with Oracle, Apple, American Express, USAA and many other organizations. His past includes stints as a Director of Software Development, licensed nursing home administrator, entrepreneur and high school teacher to name just a few. He received his BA from Kenyon College.
