Objective 1: That each member in the meetup contribute some type of job resource, referral or network that can assist or help another member within the group. This can be anything from acting as a mentor to someone else in the group, offering to be or getting a speaker, offering a direct job with a company, passing on a job contact, sharing rooming expenses at a professional conference etc.
Objective 2: That we engage in and perform concrete directive activities associated with a specific career topic that the group will perform together. Ex: Re-Writing Resumes, Resume Critiquing, How to Find A Career Mentor, Informational Interviewing etc.
Objective 3: After completion of concrete directive activities that we actually meetup in person or virtually once a date has been collectively decided among members in the group to constructively discuss, provide concrete feedback, tips and advice that can assist and encourage each other as members toward progression to our career goals and paths.
Objective 4: That each member provide suggestions for topics, events, ideas, speakers, workshops especially within their expertise or sub-field of social science or anything that may be relevant or believe that will beneficial to the group or enhance the lives of other members. The organizer cannot do it all alone or contribute all ideas. Plus it won’t be fair!!!
Objective 5: Have some sort of social and fun aspect to the group that will include attending cultural events, lunches, museums, movies etc. that can tie in with social science.
Career networking can be a solitary affair at times and is ongoing; 24/7-365 days. With DFW Social Science Career Connectors:
