What we're about

Covid-19 NOTICE: CIT is currently meeting virtually on Zoom. Registration for each Zoom meeting requires the completion of a Google Doc form. RSPS's through Meetup alone, will not get you into the meetings. Members who belong to CIT on Meetup will receive the specific instructions for meeting registration in the Meetup Meeting Invitations/Notices and in two reminders sent prior to the meeting. Hope we can get back to physical meetings soon.

CIT is a networking group and more – we provide small group discussions lead by professionals offering insight, tools and techniques for navigating career strategies in the current workplace environment. Discussion topics include interviewing, use of social networking sites, mapping of career strategy, time management skills and suggestions for keeping positive. Individual resumes are reviewed and suggestions offered to help members attract the positions they desire. The group is recommended by job search professionals and members as one of the best small groups in the area.

CIT meets the 1st and 3rd Saturday, almost without exceptions, at the school building behind Christ Church in Short Hills. Park in the parking lot across from the church at 66 Highland Avenue. Walk up the hill to the school and enter the door at the Highland Ave. end of the building. Coffee and tea service begins at 8am, the program begins promptly at 8:30 and we conclude at 11am.

You must be on time. THE DOOR IS LOCKED AT 8:30AM. NO ONE IS ADMITTED AFTER 8:30AM!

CIT Meeting Saturday, June 4: Ed Samuels - Tell Me About Yourself

Link visible for attendees

Often someone who does not know you, asks you to give them insight about who you are, your value and to hear your story. Please join Ed Samuel to learn about why and how answering the question, so "The Me About Yourself" can prove pivotal during an interview or even a simple networking conversation.
Ed will share why a poor answer can put you in a hole and how a good answer creates a positive branded image immediately. Ed will walk you through a step-by-step process that has worked well with hundreds and hundreds of his clients. Ed has testimonials from client's that state, "It's because of this singular coaching on Tell Me About Myself was key on why I was selected and got the job."
Key Takeaways from this session:

  • Learn the overarching rule and best practice in how to answer the question
  • Why is your story far better than your current or last job description?
  • Garner access to a "real life" example and template to put in to use

  • Learn four (4) areas that Tell Me About Yourself applies to beyond interviews
