SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ --  Does your “elevator pitch” grab the listener’s attention, leaving them wanting to know more about you? Many job seekers, and even consultants and business owners, miss the boat with their marketing messages, trying hard to inform the listener and finding that no one cares.

Developing an effective marketing message is one of the most important things you can do to accelerate your job search. Career expert John Hadley will be at the Scotch Plains Public Library on Monday, June 12, at 6:30 p.m., to discuss how to develop an effective marketing message.

At the end of the workshop, attendees will understand the biggest mistakes even experienced professionals make when talking about what they do, how to articulate a memorable message clearly and succinctly, and how to leverage this knowledge to create consistent visibility.
