Susan Goldberg presented two seminars this week at Pace University’s business school in downtown Manhattan. Sponsored by the Career Services department with the help of Dr. Barry Miller, Ms. Maxine Sugarman and Ms. Genevieve Chorhummel, Susan addressed two different audiences on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Monday’s audience was comprised of Lubin MBA alumni while Wednesday’s seminar instructed current students attending the undergraduate and graduate programs. The alumni program content included information on how to work successfully with recruiters. The student program focused on interviewing skills including how to respond to particularly difficult questions and situations. Audience participation was a key ingredient for both seminars so that the programs could be beneficial for the individual attendees. The programs were well attended. Individual attendees praised the helpfulness of the seminars. A comment from one of the alumni attendees follows:
“Thanks for an informative and well done presentation last night. Despite 20+ years in human resources, I picked up so many new ideas. The seminar was so helpful and I think the people sitting around me got a lot out of them, too.” Barbara D
On January 6, Susan Goldberg spoke as a panelist in a discussion on networking and career development at the Penn Club, presented by Newark Academy Alumni Relations. It was one of the networking nights Alumni Relations sponsors in Manhattan for Newark Academy alumni and their families. The event was attended by former students enrolled in a university currently as well as those who attended the private school in Livingston, New Jersey, years ago and already have well-established professional careers. Some of the topics discussed by the five panelists included networking tips, overcoming career obstacles, increasing the chances of having your resume noticed, and career lessons learned. Susan was selected to speak by Nancy McGaughan, the Director of Alumni Relations, who organized and managed the event.
Nancy’s thank you note follows…..
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to be a part of Networking Night. Your comments were so helpful to our alumni and I really appreciate the time you spent talking individually with people after the panel presentation. Many of the younger alumni told me that you were so warm and engaging when they spoke with you. I hope we can stay in touch as we grow the program as I welcome your expertise.
Again, Thank you so much.
It’s common sense that if you want to be known for communicating original ideas and keeping “on top of” current issues and trends, your image should reflect that. Your words will not create the degree of impact you intended if your appearance doesn’t fit with the strength, innovativeness, and relevance of your ideas. Appearance is important. According to psychologists, you have less than 30 seconds to make a good first impression, with 55% of it being based on appearance alone. Susan addresses this in her article, ” The Stylist, A Fairy Godmother to Your Inner Cinderella” by Susan Goldberg published in “Woman Around Town” this week. Making an attractive appearance never hurts but it may communicate more than just plain “nice-looking”. According to some experts, who take neuromarketing seriously, a person should update their appearance every few years to reflect an image that is rooted in the immediate times and not grounded in the past. Susan worked with a style consultant to update her closetful of clothes while keeping true to her personality and taste. She shares the personal story of her experience in http://www.womanaroundtown.com/sections/shopping-around/the-stylist-a-fairy-godmother-for-your-inner-cinderella . Working with the stylist proved to be more intense than expected, however the article is written in a light informal style for the women’s lifestyle newsletter that is distributed in the New York City and Washington DC metro areas.
“Who is Going to Help You?”, article for job seekers and decision makers, written by Susan Goldberg, published this weekSaturday, December 4th, 2010
After many discussions and countless emails and phonecalls about the subject, Susan Goldberg of SGES, a retainer based executive search firm, wanted to write a helpful article detailing the differences between recruiters, agents, headhunters, search professionals, and employment agents; that article was published in the December 3 issue of “Woman Around Town”. Many professionals assume they understand the differences between the titles, but a lot of misinformation exists in the marketplace. For instance, ” I receive a lot of emails requesting that I represent an individual emailer in the job market. I am a people person. I want to help everyone. But that’s not my role. What the emailer doesn’t understand, in a search situation, as a retained search consultant, I don’t work for an individual, I work as the representative of a client’s organization”. ”Who is Going to Help You” was written in an effort to explain situations just like this one. The article is a primer on the various recruiting titles: explaining what each one does, how they get paid, who employs them and who they represent, and how they work. The media and entertainment industries have the widest variety of these types of titles. However, the piece was written for anyone and everyone who wants to learn more about hiring and/or seeking employment.
