Off-week meetings for Job Club participants?
Hello everyone. A little update on how the meetup has grown in the past few months- we've connected the group with the Launchpad Job Club, seeing as how there are a bunch more designers out there now looking for work. This has resulted in our expanding to two meetings a month- the first Tuesday as we always have, which we still do at different locations, and the third Wednesday, which is always at the Khabele school downtown.
We've had some people express interest in meeting every week, for the purposes of networking and sharing job hunting experiences. So I've put four questions in the poll section, and I'm asking everyone who is interested in having weekly meetings to answer the polls with your preferences. The questions have to do with ability/desire to attend, location/part of town, time of day, etc.
These weekly meetings would be unstructured and without any agenda (other than the job search thing), unlike the main meetings. It's also likely that I wouldn't be able to make all of them, doing two a month is a somewhat heavy schedule for me. I would probably have someone else serve as the "greeter" for lack of a better term at these meetings, but by their nature they wouldn't really need someone to lead the group, unless someone particularly wanted to take that upon themselves.
Feel free to also respond to this email to the mailing list, and/or post responses in the thread on our group's message board where I've also posted this.
