Our speaker, Ed Samuel, will detail the 17 Dos and Don’ts for those wanting to make a career pivot to optimize your career. Examples of career pivots are leaving an industry that you have known all your life to work in a new industry or shifting your career to a new line of work such as operations to marketing or finance to sales or nursing to customer service. Leaving corporate America to blaze your own trail is yet another pivot. Ed Samuel is a career, life and executive coach, public speaker, author, certified career assessment and DiSC Team Leader and has a non-profit stewardship ministry and founder of SamNova, Inc. He specializes in leveraging networks, targeted job searches, the hidden-job market, landing a job for the over age of 55, and those looking to make a career pivot.

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking and meeting starts at 9:00 to 10:30. Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.
Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.
Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.
Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.
