“ I have found the 8 O'clock Job Club very rewarding. The practice of and helpful critique of the "elevator speech" has made me focus on my strenghts and abilities and enabling me to speak about myself with greater ease and confidence. The topics discussed are very helpful in looking at new ways of job searching and updating your profile in the various work related social media as well as the proper information and formatting of your resume for today's job market. ”

“ The 8 O'clock Job Club has greatly aided me in my career transition by providing the opportunity to practice and critique the all-important elevator speech. Each week Kathleen Winsor-Games, as moderator is well-prepared, provides needed structure in an efficiently-run meeting, and asks the questions that we need to address but either choose to avoid or do not know to ask. Kathleen provides key discussion topics important to the employment seeker in 2010, while challenging/encouraging each member to personnaly take charge of their quest. Topics such as company research techniques, finding key decision makers/hiring managers via LinkedIn, paralleling "Plan B" employment/consulting considerations, resume critique, updating with current job search technologies are all discussed at our meetings. If you are looking for more direction and strategic assistance in your search, this is a meeting you should attend. ”
