Recurring Meetings

Sundays from 9:00 – 9:30 am: George Pace, an IT Technology Leader, in Partnership with TBCNJ, host a weekly LIVE Webinar every Sunday to discuss:

  •       The latest Federal / State news as it relates to the Job Market 

 

Monday mornings – The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  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 bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.

Monday, 05/06, 10:30 am, Professional Services Group of Central New Jersey hosts, How to Spot Fake Profiles and Phishing Scams on LI. We’ve all received them. The connection request from someone we don’t know with no message or maybe something generic like, “I read your profile and thought we should be connected.” Or those InMails asking you to contact them “if you’re looking for …”. How do you know if the person is real, or if the message could be a scam? Our presenter Dean Artruc will show us some tools and techniques to help spot the “fakes” and maybe help reduce them. Do you reply to them even if you don’t know the person and if you do, is there a risk to doing so?

Dean Artruc is an IT infrastructure leader with a career marked by technical expertise and visionary leadership with extensive experience spanning over a decade. Dean stays abreast of security/cybersecurity issues where he’s held group discussions, posted articles, and is a speaker at various events.

Speaker: Michael Goldberg

Registration link coming soon

Registration for all events closes at 12 noon the day prior to the event.  

Seminar Description:

Touch gloves and come out networking! Job search is a fight. No doubt about it. You’ll want to lace up your gloves and come out swinging. Networking, like boxing, is about the connection. And more and better connections (in or out of the ring!) means greater success. In this session, we’ll discuss what networking is, the different types, what to say (and not say!), how to stay focused, follow up, target marketing, LinkedIn, introductions and referrals, the Daily Fight Plan, and more!

Bottom line, having a KO strategy to networking will absolutely help you attract more prospects, more referrals, and more interviews to your pipeline!

Seminar Objectives

In this “main event”, you will learn how to:

  • Confidently meet and greet new people in professional settings – LIVE and virtually.
  • Further define Target Market to establish more and better connections.
  • Deliver a “knock-out” elevator speech (not a script!).
  • Generate more prospects, introductions, and referrals from current network.
  • Establish important relationships generating more career opportunities.
  • Create a daily process to stay focused and gain momentum.

Recurring Meetings

Sundays from 9:00 – 9:30 am: George Pace, an IT Technology Leader, in Partnership with TBCNJ, host a weekly LIVE Webinar every Sunday to discuss:

  •       The latest Federal / State news as it relates to the Job Market 

 

Monday mornings – The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  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 bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.

Topic: Knock Out Networking for Career Search!

Speaker: Michael Goldberg

Registration link coming soon

Registration for all events closes at 12 noon the day prior to the event.

Seminar Description:

Touch gloves and come out networking! Job search is a fight. No doubt about it. You’ll want to lace up your gloves and come out swinging. Networking, like boxing, is about the connection. And more and better connections (in or out of the ring!) means greater success. In this session, we’ll discuss what networking is, the different types, what to say (and not say!), how to stay focused, follow up, target marketing, LinkedIn, introductions and referrals, the Daily Fight Plan, and more!

Bottom line, having a KO strategy to networking will absolutely help you attract more prospects, more referrals, and more interviews to your pipeline!

Seminar Objectives

In this “main event”, you will learn how to:

  • Confidently meet and greet new people in professional settings – LIVE and virtually.
  • Further define Target Market to establish more and better connections.
  • Deliver a “knock-out” elevator speech (not a script!).
  • Generate more prospects, introductions, and referrals from current network.
  • Establish important relationships generating more career opportunities.
  • Create a daily process to stay focused and gain momentum.

Recurring Meetings

Sundays from 9:00 – 9:30 am: George Pace, an IT Technology Leader, in Partnership with TBCNJ, host a weekly LIVE Webinar every Sunday to discuss:

  •       The latest Federal / State news as it relates to the Job Market

 

Monday mornings – The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking starts from 9 to 9:30am and the meeting starts at 9:30 to 10:30 while virtual.  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 bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.
