What we're about

Are you frustrated with your job search? Or are you just starting to look? Every month, the Brown Bag Job Search group offers presentations on job searching skills along with valuable networking opportunities. Regular monthly meetups are FREE! In addition to the monthly meetings, we offer special classes for our trademarked job searching systems at a very affordable rate.

Monthly Meetups include a presentation on a job search-related topic while you enjoy your brown bag lunch, followed by time to practice your new skills with your fellow job hunters. Each meeting is lead by Donna Shannon, a professional career coach and author of "Get a Job Without Going Crazy."

Topic TBA We are trying something a little different with this meeting to make our presentations more accessible to those not in Denver,or otherwise unable to make our in-person meetings.

How Networking Works

Online event

Networking: the word that strikes terror into the heart of many job seekers. Instantly, the horrifying image of walking into a crowded room of 200 people springs to mind, with everyone trying to shove their business cards at each other and make a positive impression with strangers in less than five minutes. However, this is NOT an effective use of networking when it comes to job searching. In this case, networking is about building trust and relationships. We start first with those closest to us and then build on that success to give us confidence to reach out to people we don’t know yet – in person, on the phone, via email, and through social media.

Handling Different Interview Styles

Online event

Employers try all kinds of different tactics for interviews. Some will subject you to a veritable stress test, just to see how you react. Alternatively, the interviewer just might be as nervous as you are. In any case, anticipating these various styles and knowing how to deal with them can help you survive even the worst interview situation.
