Personal Business Plan

I recently had opportunity to present at several job clubs in Salt Lake and Utah Counties. The topic I presented was “Running Your Job Search Like a Business.” The material was based on the business plan model from the Small Business Administration as found on http://www.sba.gov and adapted/applied to job search techniques. A copy of the handout I used can be printed by clicking the link below. This handout describes each section of the business plan and my application to the job search.
