Come to our “Ask the Recruiter” Expert Panel Event on 7/25!

12 07 2017

Hi Everyone,

Have you ever had a question that you were just dying to ask an employer or recruiter about the hiring process, how to land the right job, or how to get a promotion? 

Now, you’ll have a chance to hear directly from the hiring experts their smartest tips, the mistakes to avoid, and the inside scoop from the employer/recruiter standpoint!

The KIT List is hosting this free event, and I will moderate a panel of five experts from some of the Silicon Valley’s top recruitment firms for permanent, temp-to-perm and contract placements. We’ll have a combination of prepared questions and Q&A from the audience. 

Our panel will share their expert advice from working with companies including Facebook, Apple, LinkedIn, Nike, HP, Cisco, Microsoft, VMWare, Intuit, NetApp, Adobe, Stanford Health Care, Bank of the West, Wells Fargo, Kaiser, Blue Shield, Safeway, Varian Medical Systems, Brocade, and Gigamon, to name a few.

Join us at the beautiful Northside Branch of the Santa Clara Library in their large events room.

There is a space limit of 100 so please register for this free event, and be sure to arrive early to get a seat since this will be standing room only (if you can’t get in, then join us for the free mixer afterward). 

Tuesday, 7/25
7:00 – 8:30 PM

Post-Event Mixer:
8:30 – 9:30 PM at

This is a special opportunity to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask — and to get beyond the basics!

Forbes’ Pick of the Best Career Web Sites

30 08 2014

Hello Everyone,

I just ran across this great list this morning. I think Forbes will likely update it next month, but I suspect the majority of those on this list will remain!

Since there’s no time like the present to learn about smarter ways to conduct a successful job search, I wanted to share this with you now.

The list of 100 resources may seem daunting…but if you just incorporate ONE change, that may prove to be the tipping point in your career!

I encourage you to make a commitment to try just one thing today. Here’s the link to the Forbes list:

Watch KIT TV: “Tips and Traps for Job Networking”

6 02 2012

 ImageHello Everyone,

Take a look at the second KIT List “Get That Job!” TV show. Now that it has aired locally, it’s now available on YouTube at

Please share this with your friends, too, since we’re doing this series to not only help you and our KIT List community, but to help all job seekers be more effective in their search.

In our monthly shows, you’ll hear directly from the experts on smart job search and career management strategies – as well as the common mistakes to avoid!

This show is focused on successful job networking, or what I prefer to call “Friend-working.”

Friend-working is a more positive way to approach networking and turns what can be a scary process into one where you to help others first, which also ends up helping you in a more natural and enjoyable way!

We’re fortunate to have two outstanding guests, Hamid Sadaat, founder of CSIX Connect and Tom Brouchoud, Senior Manager of Global Talent Aquisition at Sandisk. I know many of you have benefited from Hamid’s generosity through his excellent networking organization, CSIX Connect. Hamid and Tom are long-time friends and they bring great perspectives and humor.

You can also view the first KIT List TV show at:

That show has smart tips on interviewing, resumes and cover letters, among other topics. This note on YouTube is exactly the reason why we’re doing this series!

“Awesome, helpful, useful information you, Christine, and John provided. After viewing your video, “Get That Job…Job Hunting Tips Part One,” I modified my resume and cover letter, and, well, 4 weeks letter, received a job offer that best meets my qualifications and needs, plus most importantly, that I am passionate about. Many thanks!!!! So excited to start 2012 gainfully employed with a fantastic company. Thank you!”

Feel free to share these shows with anyone who is looking for a job, and stay tuned for the upcoming shows.
