What does online dating have to do with searching for a new job? A lot!


After working as a career counselor at Stanford University and Syracuse University, Diana saw that the same skills and tools that helped her clients market themselves to employers would work beautifully to help them develop effective online dating profiles. Her clients now include people of all ages who are looking for love.


In this session, we’ll look at examples from online dating profiles, discuss eye-opening data analysis from the online dating world, and identify specific tools and techniques that you can use (whatever your relationship status) to invigorate your own search for a job. Of course, it all starts with being yourself — but that’s just the beginning!
