"There is a way to do it better--find it." - Thomas Edison
Searching for a new job or career by yourself can be lonely and isolating. As an estimated 60% of job offers come from networking, we believe there is strength in working together. (Membership is open to all, site is closed for member privacy.) If you believe the job search is not a spectator sport, join us! Through small group workshops, we share best practices for applying for jobs, Web 2.0 strategies to make your search efficient, and a dose of optimism to keep going. We store resources on our site and send e-mail tips, so you can stay informed--even if you can't attend meetings.
Our MeetUp organizers are Laura Allen, aka “The Pitch Girl” and co-founder of 15secondpitch.com and Chandlee Bryan, Community Manager at StartWire. Laura specializes in helping job seekers and entrepreneurs market themselves, Chandlee worked as a career coach, resume writer, and a recruiter prior to joining StartWire. We welcome guest speakers who are subject matter experts in career management, professional development, and job search strategy. Interested parties should contact Laura for more information.
At the present time, this MeetUp is one of the largest, active, job seekers MeetUp groups in the U.S. yet, our in-person meetings are limited due to a lack of adequate meeting space. We are seeking a "home" for future events. An ideal meeting place can accommodate a minimum of 15 participants and will include technical capabilities for presentations. Contact us if interested. (All sponsorships will be well publicized.)
