1.0 | NETWORKING: JOB SEEKERS’ NETWORKING GROUP
Out of work? Meet others in the same boat for a weekly meeting that will help to keep your job search on track. You and the other participants drive the agenda – you raise topics that you’d like to discuss related to job search strategies, ask if others can help arrange informational interviews with individuals in your target industry, and explore best practices for getting “unstuck” in your job search and noticed by employers. This group does not have an industry focus, so all job seekers are welcome. Because this is a “drop-in” group, the group dynamics and agenda will change every week.
