“Hi Mahmood, The job search group and the 30days workshop did help a lot. Below are only to name a few that helped me.
1. Self assessment – a clear view about skills and what can do
2. Close gap – Continue learning skills ( for me through YouTube)
3. Target matching jobs – Instead of target company, I search for jobs that matches my experience
4. Summarize interview experiences, good or bad to improve interview skills
5. Record phone interview, based on the areas they were asking and the job description, come up SAOOR, the more the better.” Best, Emay.
“The job search workshop paves the path to career by providing the solid foundation and all the building blocks to your career destination!
I Can’t stress enough the importance of completing all the SOOAR homework and attending the breakfast and workshop meetings. Then the one on one coaching with Mahmood as well as meetings and support from your buddies.
These are the real secrets – luck = preparation + opportunities.” Shue Han Chou
