Hi you guys, we’re here in Chicago. It’s me Kwan and this is Pat! Hi I’m Pat, I feel so honored to give the first LIVE for ICAway.
Yeah, this is our first live video. So! we are very excited about it, and Pat’s got
some great news to share with us so what is it, Pat? what’s happening in your life
right now with your career? Well, how to say that it’s been a very difficult week for me
to start with since I’ve been waiting for the result of the job offer decision which is coming I had interview a Friday and it’s supposed to
get the feedback by today or like yesterday or today. I’ve been
waiting, so it feels like it takes forever for waiting for the results but
then I try to you know stop all the negativity and then start to continue to
apply more then I got the feedback of another three coming up. Yesterday, I
got three interview offers Phone screening to begin with and
networking so it’s like so you know it’s kind of made me a little nervous
about waiting and then today in the morning I got another one so now I have
like four lining up! Cool! Those jobs find you. You
didn’t even have to apply for that we’ve got great profile out there and employers came to you and ask for the meeting with you. Is that great? Not much efforts at all Every job is about project manager role which I’ve been looking for – only project manager job and it’s like very straight to what I really want. Some
of the job are from the company that I’ve been monitoring for years, for
example, Proficient. I’ve been talking to recruiters for like two years trying to
keep posted with their job posts, and I never found a job post that I would apply until now the
recruiter directly contacted me. I got so excited. Woohoo!
that’s such a good morning yeah yeah that’s fun and what are we doing here
today outside in the sunny day in Chicago. Where are we heading to? We’re heading to 1871 this is the office you know it’s like
this office for all the startups, IT companies or the technology companies. So, we want to explore just in case, we can this’s happening every time you
know every five minutes if you’re here in Chicago you’re going to hear all the
trains and yeah the railway here was built for like 100 years so it’s pretty normal and loud alright so we heading to Merchandise Mart, which, is you know the old and legendary office building in Chicago been around for
years and years and they have the office called
1871 of space which is you know all the startup companies okay another one all
right okay that’s always
okay over go here! So we hope to network
and probably we just try our chance, walk in there see what is like because we know that like Pat her target job is the project manager for
the IT consulting companies and here there are lots of companies and need Project Manager position we’re not gonna be there and look for
a job but we’re going to be to network yes and the key to succeed in networking
is more like you know you want to connect with people, not about you being hungry for the job That’s one of your
recommendation you always recommend me to put yourself out there and actually ask for advice rather than asking for a job
right away You have to position that hey I’m here to learn and can I ask for advice? People would love to help you, yeah most of the time I get like 50 percent success rate and Don’t be desperate, right? Like I do not know anything and you know I’m incompetent it’s not
like that so be confidence when you present yourself
what you really need is to build your career, rather than getting a
job you want to grow your career – that’s the idea So let’s find out what it’s going to be be like! So it’s great meeting you all on
live Facebook. It’s our first time to be here See you next
time! Thanks, Bye!
