March 17: Paul Cecala Demystifies Developing a Successful Job Search Plan

By Arlene O’Reilly Paul Cecala

All job seekers know what they want — a new job. But it can be tough figuring out the exact steps to take and when to take them. Implementing a well-designed job search plan can save you from either wasting time or inaction.

Those who create a detailed plan use their time and energy more productively. With a plan as a guide, job seekers can wake up each morning knowing what they will work on and accomplish that day. Regular, daily attention to achievable small steps gives the job seeker more control over the search process.

Paul Cecala, Certified Career Coach, shows us how to organize, plan and run a successful job search at the Monday, March 17 PSGCNJ General Meeting. Join us when he speaks on Creating a Job Search Project Plan that Gets Results. 

Cecala serves as the Coordinator of Career and Professional Programs at County College of Morris in Randolph, New Jersey. He also consults with job seekers to develop project plans and resumes, and improve their networking and interviewing skills.

As a job coach, Cecala has taught over 525 workshops, reaching over 2,400 people. With over a decade of job coaching experience, he has deep knowledge in the areas of sustainability, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, information technology, and general business and management. 

A Certified Career Coach for the The Five O’Clock Club, an outplacement and career coaching organization, Cecala is trained in their methodology and maintains his certification with annual training.

Bring a friend and come hear Cecala speak at PSGCNJ’s general meeting on Monday, March 10, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church, located at 48 West High Street, Somerville.
