SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- On Monday, Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m., Alex Freund, the Landing Expert, will be at the Scotch Plains Public Library to discuss how developing a strong value proposition will benefit your job search.

The value proposition is all about why people say “yes.”  In a job search, like it or not, one of the biggest challenges is marketing yourself effectively to a future employer. If you develop a strong value proposition, you will help your future employer say “yes” to hiring you, to buy what you are selling. In this presentation, you’ll learn how to write a clear value proposition that provides your unique core message and offers your “customer” a bulletproof rationale to choose YOU over competitors.

In this presentation, attendees will learn to develop a value proposition that answers four questions:
