Event notes, summary and follow up email:
Thank you for registering and/or attending tonight’s Living, Working and Networking in Melbourne event.
As promised, I am sending you a long email with a variety of information.
If you have any of the following that you would like to share with me or other people, please reply to this email and I will send a summary (particularly if there are some good links and resources) to you late next week:
1) Feedback from the event (both positive and constructive – please be open and honest – I can handle it! I realize that it was noisy – sorry about that)
2) Information other guests may find useful
3) What you would like to see covered in future events on this topic
If you would like personalized professional assistance from me, this is available on an hourly fee for service basis ($95 per hour) or as an upfront cost that covers you for three months support to help you find work – this includes up to four hours one on one assistance and additional emails/phone calls ($499).
8) Most of the information I discussed in relation to work, careers and resumes is online via the Jobs and Careers Kit that you can download at http://www.newcomersnetwork.com/downloads/index.php - remember that it is YOU who needs to do the work – do as MUCH as you can before the end of the football season (September) because things do slow down after the Melbourne Cup (November through to January) in some industries.
