This group meets about twice per month with the objective of bringing structure to your career transition. Anyone looking for new employment, new opportunity, whether they already have a job or not, is welcome to join.
Check the Meetup site for meeting location and times. We have used both the Parchment Cafe in Livermore and the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce Conference Room.
Since I've taken over as organizer the structure of the Meetup has featured guest speakers. For example, we have had Nelvin Moss of Robert Half's Accountemps, Julia Holian Chief Career Strategist of Julia Holian & Associates and most recently we had Tess Owen, Founder of Omni Social Media. The idea is to network/connect, listen and participate with guest speakers who provide amazing content.
Please bring your laptop or tablet. We will meet one another, share what we are looking for, share resume tips, talk about how to budget while in transition and network and learn how we can help each other (introductions, target companies etc). This is a great way to not be isolated, to have a structured day, and to rely on each other for support.
