Description

If you're looking for a job, want to make key business connections or meet some new people, then we encourage you to attend Urban Financial Services (UFSC) Richmond Chapter’s Handshakes, Headshots and Headhunters’ (H3) Career Opportunities event. This event is mostly geared towards connecting Job Seekers with those Hiring Managers and Recruiters that have matching openings. This event is a great place for all professionals (including those that are already working), to network and build connections, which can be utilized to enhance long-term career growth and personal development. In addition, we will also collaborate with local non-profit organizations to strengthen community ties and support the important services they provide to the people of the Metro Richmond Area.

The UFSC H3 event will take place on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The event will take place at the Richmond Police Academy, 1202 W. Graham Road, Richmond,VA 23220.

This unique career opportunities event features the following:

- Resume Reviews – Jobseekers will have the opportunity to sign up for sessions to have their resume reviewed in order to get feedback regarding strategies on how to enhance their resume.

- Mock Interviews – Jobseekers will have the opportunity to practice answering interview questions that they have had a hard time answering during past interviews. The interviewers will give candid feedback and suggestions to the jobseekers.

- Headshots – Now that LinkedIn and other professional networking sites have taken on such an important role in promoting a jobseeker’s professional abilities and brand, having an impact and making headshot to be more important than ever. A headshot is not a simple picture. It’s a jobseeker’s virtual business card, the logo of their personal brand, and the best way to make an impact and a long-lasting first impression. Jobseekers will have an opportunity to take a headshot that is consistent with their brand image and their next job opportunity.

- Round Robin Session with Recruiters – Each employer will be positioned at a table with 4 to 10 chairs and will have a set amount of time (estimated 10 -15 minutes) to share some information about their company, upcoming job opportunities, and answer questions from participants. At the beginning of the program, participants will be put into networking groups that they will stay in as they go to each recruiter’s table. Each round will start with a buzzer and during that round, essential information will be exchanged. The buzzer will sound signifying that the round has ended, and the networking groups will proceed to the next employer’s table. The number of rounds will depend on the number of employers and the number of participants.

- Best Practices Guide on How to Avoid Common Mistakes – Urban Financial Services Coalition will provide participants with a guide on how to avoid common mistakes during the job seeking process. Feedback from various sources as well as the recruiters will be added to the guide.

- Make-Up Makeover Sessions with April Manuel – A limited number of participants will have the opportunity to enhance their look for their professional headshot through a makeover session with April Manuel, Founder of THEBEAUTYMANUEL. After working for various cosmetics lines, Ms. Manuel branched out into her own business, doing what she loves most. She helps everyday clients look their best for work and play. She is often found on tours helping various celebrities, such as Bad Boy Entertainment, Eva Longoria, Kanye West, Steven Tyler, and more, to get stage ready.
