Show Notes

This episode is with Connie Dorigan, an executive search professional in the food processing world. The love of food comes naturally to Connie. With a dad who grew up on a dairy farm and a mom who read cookbooks like novels, she understood at an early age the unifying power of food.

The human condition is something she’s always been fascinated with. Educated in social work and psychology and recruiting for over 30 years, she applies her love for people and greater understanding of the “business of business” to build her network of genuinely good, dedicated, and skilled contacts.

In this episode, Connie shares with us:

·       Being effective in your job search means you need to research the company and people you are speaking with, map the skills they are looking for with your skills, make a list of questions you want to ask about the company/position and practice your interview.

·       Great resumes are clear, concise and to the point.

·       The old myth that no company hires during holiday months is false.

·       You need to make the time to network.

·       Many different ideas on how to keep your confidence up while you are looking for that next great opportunity.
