What we're about

The White Box Club™—appropriately named after the daunting white boxes many employees receive to "pack up their things"—was created to provide free live coaching sessions, encouragement, resources, and networking opportunities to anyone laid off, unemployed, or in career transition.

Meetings create opportunities to learn from industry experts and meet others who are in career transition or thinking of new career options. Plus, the meetings give you a good reason to get out of the house and hang out with good people who care. Now what could be better than that?!

The White Box Club™ for Job Seekers holds weekly meetings in both east metro (Woodbury OffiCenters) and west metro (Edina OffiCenters), and north metro (Rasmussen College) on selected Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Please see the Meetup group page for a current schedule of topics and locations.

**During COVID-19 sheltering in place, all meetings will be moving to online webinars. For more information, visit: thewhiteboxclub.com (http://thewhiteboxclub.com/), or send a message to info@thewhiteboxclub.com

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Meetup!

Clearing the Air

Online event

Let’s be honest.. Job searching can be so. much. work. Especially if you’re trying to hustle your resume to the top of the pile while managing slimmer financial resources. And even more so if you’re feeling all the emotions of having been laid off, despite being a top performer…

Join TWBC facilitator, Paul Boehnke and guest coach Suzanne Reilley (suzannereilley.com) for an hour of rejuvenation and clarity.

In this virtual meetup, you’ll have the opportunity to take a deep breath, get some relief from the job hunt, and gain clarity on your most efficient steps forward.

We’ll start with a guided journaling exercise designed to release all the pent up energy from being rejected, ghosted, confused (etc etc) in this transition.

Next, you’ll get to rest in a short, guided breathing exercise, designed to help you find peace within the chaos.

From this clearer, more open mental space, you’ll be guided through empowering coaching questions designed to uncover your own brilliance on how to navigate this transition and craft your ideal future.

You can choose to keep any insights to yourself, or share with the group in the last few minutes of our time together.

To get the most out of this session, come to the space with as few distractions as possible and do your best to be present and available to the process. Also, bring a journal or notepad with you.

And keep in mind… Just one mental shift could change everything.
