Summer is almost over and we’re doubling down on our efforts to meet our dual mission of helping young professionals create opportunities for themselves quickly and confidently AND improving educational outcomes so that more young people have a shot at career success. Here are four opportunities and events we’re hosting and hope you take advantage of them with us.
The Opportunities Project’s First Year Anniversary Party and Fundraiser for HOBY
Please join me on Tuesday, September 20th at 7PM to celebrate a successful first year in business,as well as network, and raise money for my favorite education organization, the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Foundation (HOBY). I participated in HOBY 20 years ago (1991, baby) and it was very influential on my development as a young adult and professional. Without HOBY, I would have never gone away to school or led the professional path I took toward entrepreneurship. I believe this organization teaches the skills kids really need in today’s economy and want to help them reach more students.
The ticket price for the party is $15 and all proceeds are tax deductible and go directly to HOBY NY Metro’s account via the Eventbrite page (minus the ticket fee). We’ll also be auctioning off some donated goods and services which we’ll update on the Eventbrite page. It will be a fabulous opportunity to support a great cause, celebrate, and expand your network so see you there!
Free Webinar: Confidence Confidential- How to Sell Yourself in the Job Search
I am doing a free webinar through Big Marker’s Jump Start Your Job Search September Campaign called Confidence Confidential: How to Sell Yourself in the Job Search on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 at 7PM ET. After teaching and coaching 750 people last year on how to manage their careers, I’ve found that the issue is rarely a bad resume or lack of skills, but an absence of confidence. I’m excited to share what’s worked for my clients so you can break through the wall between you and your new exciting career move.

Avoid a Cruel Summer free eCourse Enrollment Deadline Extended
Due to demand, we’re extending the date that you can enroll in our free eCourse, Avoid a Cruel Summer until September 22, the official last day of summer. Yes, you can’t probably do the lessons on the beach any longer unless you live in the south, but it’s all still good content. It will also be the last opportunity to get it all for FREE.
