Next Meetup

Even if you have great skills and qualifications, it can still be challenging to find a good job with a decent salary. If you aren’t getting interviews, it’s time to strengthen your resume. This workshop is a crash course for people who want to revise their resumes. We'll discuss how companies hire new staff, the 3 sections of a job posting, and address each resume section separately. We'll critique a variety of resumes and leave time for lots of questions. Sherry Natkow, M.Ed. CPRW is a career coach and certified resume writer.

What we're about

Gainfully Unemployed is a group of people who lost their jobs but not their lives. This group consists of people who proactively enrich their lives with knowledge, experiences, action, and just plain fun. Learn more about us here:

Gainfully Unemployeds seek jobs, company, events and resources. In this group, we share ideas about resumes, interview tips, employment opportunities and free to low cost activities around the city. Since we all live productive lives there is no way we can spend the entire day sending out resumes. Best of all, if you are here, you are surrounded by people who are just like you; people who support you, applaud you, and just can't wait to meet you!

One of this big goals of this group is to expose its members to options of things you can do with all that free time. That is to say, we might have an event which will be enjoyable in its own right but it is also a door being opened for you to do that again on your own. Whether it be a volunteer opportunity, a free movie or just a cool place in general to check we welcome your ideas. We require you to be contributor to the group and the best way to contribute is with ideas or more importantly with your presence. This group will be what you make it.

So let's make it the best it can possibly be and contribute in the following ways: Forum comments: Some of you might have seen the new forums that have replaces the old message boards. We need all members to contribute Meet up Suggestions: If you have a cool place you want to check out or an idea for what to do please share it.
