We're bringing our Job Club to the digital space with free webinars on the job search topics most relevant to you. Register below and join us online.
DO YOU WORK THE SAME WAY YOU DID 10 YEARS AGO?
We invite dynamic and experienced speakers that are up to date on the latest trends in job search. A lot has changed in just the last few years, from the effective use of LinkedIn to the importance of customized resumes. Technology has made it harder for qualified job seekers to get noticed so if you are operating the same way you did in your search five years or earlier, you are at a major disadvantage.
At our Friday Job Club, you’ll learn how to make a successful elevator pitch, stand out in interviews through visual communication success secrets, discover LinkedIn techniques, and learn about useful resources and community contacts.
Upcoming Job Clubs:
There are no upcoming at this time.
Our Job Club is open to everyone.
All that’s required is a positive attitude and a hope for success.

Friday Job Club is a great opportunity to network with other job seekers and share job lead information, as well as to get advice and guidance from Jim Fergle, our Employment Services Manager. Participants support one another offering input, sharing experiences, becoming LinkedIn contacts, and providing words of encouragement.
Each meeting of the job club features an expert guest speaker who presents on special topics related to your job search. Recent topics have included "Staying Motivated During the Job Search," "How to Find Federal Jobs," and "The Achievement-Based Resume."
If you are thinking that the key to success is only speaking to people that are currently employed for job leads think again. As author Van Vreede points out,
“In fact, often employed people are the least likely to help job seekers. It is other job seekers who can empathize, who are more willing to offer assistance. In addition, it is other job seekers who are hearing about leads and exploring opportunities, who are often much more aware of what's going on in the job market as opposed to the employed professional who spends all day working at his or her desk.”
