What we're about

The Puyallup Job Club is a networking group that meets most months monthly (except for December and June through August) where attendees (career seekers, business owners, and business professionals) practice their one minute commercial, attendees also have the chance to make any announcements in their business if they are a business owner, for example any events or sales in their business and pass out business cards and flyers.

A half hour seminar on a different career related topic takes place each month by Carly Calabrese, career coach/professional marketer/writer/LinkedIn Consultant. Some examples are: How to get a job using LinkedIn, How to write a resume to get the hiring manager's attention, Cover letters, thank you letters after an interview, interviewing that will result in a job offer, and the importance of networking and how to network.

Carly then shares job leads, job tips, volunteer, networking, self-development training opportunities, for example, Fred Pryor, computer classes, etc. as well as an occasional "freebie". A "freebie" can be a free/low cost community event or activity or some special coupon, etc.

Attendees also have the opportunity to share anything that could help out the other attendees, whether it be a job lead, job or marketing tip, etc.

According to the book What Color Is Your Parachute?, a job club has a success rate of 84%—that's how many people using ONLY this method of job searching find jobs—compared to the dismal 7% success rate found by blindly sending out resumes.

Let's pool our tips, techniques, tricks, resources, contacts, time, and support to get that job we so richly deserve! See you at our meetups!

Also, if you're interested in knowing about my other networking group I started and lead as well as my other events (I perform routine seminars on marketing yourself to get a job, business, or how someone such as myself, can enhance you in general), as well as book fairs and a Christmas party that won't blow your diet!
