Pledging to help “Put Minnesota Back to Work,” two Twin Cities executives are hosting a job-search event on Tuesday, January 18, in Eagan — The Guerrilla Job Search, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” Bash.

Hosted by Mike Green and featuring job-search experts David Perry (author of Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters 2.0) and Kevin Donlin (Co-Director of Guerrilla Job Search International), the event will offer job-search tools, tips, and networking opportunities to Twin Cities job seekers.

“My goal is to give employees laid off from the Lockheed Martin Eagan facility every opportunity to stay in our city,” said Green, host of the event.

The lesson?

“If you are about to be laid-off, or do not have a job now, you need to get your head in the game and change your attitude, thinking, and approach to job hunting. The cavalry is not coming over the hill to save you,” said Green.

“By almost any measure, this is the worst job environment since the Great Depression,” said Perry. “I was delighted to be asked to speak to the folks being laid off at Lockheed Martin.”

“An unprecedented 15 million Americans are looking for work daily,” added Green. “Another 16 million have given up. To get hired in today’s economy, job hunters need to re-learn how to find jobs. Example: People should stop looking for jobs and start looking for employers — that’s just one of the new ideas we’ll share at the event.”

Perry, who co-authored two Guerrilla Marketing books with Jay Conrad Levinson, has developed a job-search seminar series with Donlin, Co-Director of Guerrilla Job Search International. Their seminars offer live training based on the best-selling Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters books.

“This event is a must for any professional serious about their career,” said Green. “Unless you know exactly how to use the latest tools to market yourself to employers — especially those who aren’t advertising job openings — you will be left behind”

Tickets for the event, Tuesday evening, January 18, 2011, are available for a refundable deposit of $10.
