Have you ever wondered why some people have no problems finding and landing a new opportunity while others take months to land an opportunity?   Why do some people bounce back faster than others?

Have you ever been turned down for an opportunity and wondered, what are they really telling me? Or are you consistently the “runner up” candidate?  If you answered yes, then this knowledge sharing session is for you.

In this PMI Knowledge Sharing session, we will discuss techniques to finding and landing your next opportunity, which includes the following discussion topics:

  • Solopreneur and “The Gig Economy”
  • Personal Branding
  • The interview isn’t about you
  • Your resume is boring me
  • The second place dilemma
  • LinkedIn in reverse
  • The client, recruiter and salesperson is lying to you
  • The best questions to ask
  • I’m stuck in an industry and I can’t break into another more interesting industry
  • Collecting constructive feedback after the interview


Please register at the PMI Chicagoland Chapter Website, under Events, Knowledge Sharing for 6/20/2018 with your Name and Email address and 1-2 topic related questions. If you have issues with the website, please send an e-mail to
