SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- 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 on Monday, Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m.

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. The essence of marketing is the message, and the essence of the message is the value proposition! 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 your competitors.

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

1. What is it that you do?
2. For whom do you do it?
3. What benefits do you provide?
4. What makes you distinctive in the marketplace?

An effective career and interviewing coach, Alex Freund makes frequent presentations and conducts workshops on effective résumé development and the skilled use of LinkedIn in the job search process. He formerly managed many large departments in two Fortune 500 companies. Alex writes a blog and maintains The Landing Expert List, a free directory of job search networking groups, both of which can be found on his website, www.landingexpert.com.

It is the only reading in the Torah — from the first Parshah of the book of Exodus (in which he is born) until the end of the book of Numbers — where the name of Moses is not mentioned. Tetzaveh’s opening words are V’atah ...
