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 live coaching sessions, encouragement, resources, and networking opportunities to anyone who has found themselves 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?!

TWBC for Job Seekers holds weekly meetings in both east and west metro locations on select 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. Annual membership costs only $49. After paying membership dues, members can attend unlimited meetings and receive special members-only promotions and discounts.

Each TWBC meeting includes introductions, an interactive coaching presentation, additional coaching tips, and time for networking and making new connections. For more information, visit: http://thewhiteboxclub.com , or send a message to info@thewhiteboxclub.com

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Meetup!
