ST. MARK JOB SEEKER SUPPORT GROUP MEETING
MONDAY, OCTOBER 25th, 9-11am
We will be sending you an email blast every week to keep you informed about all the exciting activities the Job Seeker Support Group is providing! We meet every Monday morning from 9-11am with open networking at 8:30am. Please join us for coffee, donuts, fellowship, and an opportunity to polish your job seeking skills with professionals in the field!
This past Monday, we were honored to have Deane Swanson as our speaker on "Interviewing Techniques"! He went into depth regarding specific questions interviewers ask and the best way to answer them. He also went into detail about preparing for an interview and offered advice on what to do afterwards. His real life experience and stories offered insight to assist us in being more prepared for the unexpected. During the second half, we broke into smaller group sessions to address specific questions and scenarios. Wow! I know several job seekers commented that they felt much more confident going into this phase of the job search...
On Monday, October 25th, we have a two part class on Networking Strategies and a Recruiter Visit. You do not want to miss this class! Networking is a VITAL part in your job search. Let our expert teach you how to do this effectively. For the second half, we will invite one or two recruiters to share with you what companies look for in a candidate. We will have opportunities for our experts to answer all your questions.
We are also providing ongoing individual meetings during our program if you have particular questions about your job search, resumes, interviewing, etc. Even if you have missed the first few sessions, please attend! We have professionals on hand that can get you up to speed.
Please see our scheduled list of topics below. If you miss any of the sessions, we will have links posted on our web page. Our web page also has current job postings, resources, and networking events that you won't want to miss. Please visit www.stmarktampa.org
