March 9, 2012

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – On Wednesday, March 21, Illinois Wesleyan will host guest speaker Pete Leibman, who will present, “Seal the Deal: Six S.I.M.P.L.E. Steps to Get Your Dream Job.” The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Hansen Student Center (300 Beecher St., Bloomington).

Called by some the Michael Jordan of job searching, Pete Leibman began working in management for the NBA’s Washington Wizards only two years after graduating from college. He has spoken at colleges across the nation, including Stanford University and Johns Hopkins University. “In a time when millions are struggling, Pete Leibman’s messages and strategies are inspiring to today’s young professionals. He is a leader for his generation,” said Marshall Brown, “Career Coaching Blogger” for The Washington Post.

The first 50 students at the door will receive a free copy of Leibman’s book, I Got My Dream Job and So Can You: 7 Steps to Creating Your Ideal Career After College. This presentation is sponsored by the Hart Career Center, Student Senate, The Office of Student Activities & Leadership Programs and Edward Jones.
