About the Speaker
Molly Wendell never planned to become an expert in job search. But after being out of work for two years (and three days, to be exact), she received what she likes to refer to as her “black belt” in this important art. It wasn’t until Molly fired the job boards and threw out the rulebook that something actually worked. In 90 days, her new strategies landed her 60 meetings and 30 job offers. Utilizing the power of networking, Molly is passionate about teaching you her job search tips, tactics and techniques.
Prior to receiving a crash course in job search, Molly spent two successful decades in the technology industry. Ten of those years were in sales and marketing for IBM.
Molly, now founder and president of Executives Network, the largest national peer-networking resource for executives, has helped thousands of executives find new contacts, prospect relationships, referrals and job leads. She is also the author of The New Job Search: Break All the Rules. Get Connected. And Get Hired Faster For The Money You’re Worth.
Molly has a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from San Diego State University and an MBA from University of California, Irvine.
“Many people go through challenges. We all learn from these challenges. And when times are tough, it’s great to have an organization you can count on to be there and help propel you to where you deserve to be.”
