The job market is very hot!

SCROLL DOWN TO THE DESIRED DATE

Monday, 7/25, at 10 am, Professional Services Group of Central New Jersey Hosts, Networking: Using It Throughout Your Life. Some of us think of networking as something to be done when looking for a job, but networking is far more than that. It something we should all be doing all the time — for advancing our career, for finding an electrician, for helping your brother-in-law solve a work problem… for doing anything where ‘knowing stuff’ and ‘knowing people’ can be of help to you and others in working through a situation. Our guest speaker, Marty Latman, will share with us how that is repeatedly helpful in many aspects of life, working and living.

Marty Latman is a CPA and has spoken at many local and international professional organization conferences. He is also co-chairman of the Financial Executive Networking Group (FENG), chairman of New Jersey Strategic Executive Network (NJSENG) and chairman of the Bergen County Networking Community (BCNC). PSGCNJ has established a pre-registration system for Zoom meetings. Please  visit https://psgcnj.biz/need-to-know/ and register by our 11 pm Friday evening deadline prior to our Monday morning meeting where it says Welcome Back.

Tuesday 7/26, led by Tony Calabrese, “The Importance of Follow-Up”. Stay tuned for the registration link. Meetings will continue to be held on Zoom on alternate Tuesdays at 10am, with rare exceptions such as this month.

Thursday, July 28 at Noon Eastern / 9AM Pacific for the next installment of John Hadley’s free Reinvent Your Career webinar series. I’ve worked with numerous clients who reinvented themselves. Sometimes this involved a minor shift, others a radical change.  Some continued in the corporate world, others created huge success for themselves in the consulting world.  I’ve also made two successful career transitions myself, and want to share what I’ve learned. And I want to bring into the mix what has worked for others. Thus, I’ve embarked on a series of webinars to explore the clues that helped create successful transitions, to help you uncover the recipe for reinvention. For this next one, I’m going to interview Stacy Rowan, Human Design & Mindset Coach on her path from engineering through technical writing and fine art, to end up exactly where she was meant to be. Join us as we embark on this 1 hour journey  register now

Aug 10, Our August Hillsdale Career Networking Group meeting will be our annual Executive Panel Discussion. Every August, Janelle invites several of her executive clients to join us to share their views on the job market and their hiring processes so that you might better understand how companies find, evaluate and hire their new employees. It has always been our most popular and well-attended meeting, drawing over 160 people last time we did one in person, back in 2019. Unfortunately, given the current state of the pandemic, it’s obvious that it’s inappropriate to try to fit that many people into a room at this time, so this year’s meeting will again be done via Zoom. The date will be Wednesday, August  10.

This year’s format will be the same as in previous years. Instead of our normal presentations, our ‘C’ level executives will take questions that you, the members of our community, have submitted in advance about any and all aspects of the recruiting process. I will organize the questions that you submit into logical categories, and Ed Partenope will moderate the discussion with the questions you send me. Normally, we begin to ask you for those questions early in July, so we’re a little late getting started this year, and we ask for both your indulgence and your help.  The time to start sending those question is NOW!!! 

Let us know what’s bothering you most about the job search process. Do you have any questions about resumes or interviews?  Are you worried about the future of working remotely? Or scared to death about how Artificial Intelligence might affect your candidacy? Any question on any topic related to the job search is fair game. The primary value of a meeting like this is that the executives will address issues that are on YOUR minds. Feel free to ask ANYTHING about ANYTHING that bothers you. Multiple questions are fine; the more, the better, as long as everyone realizes that time may not allow us to get to every question we receive.

As a courtesy to our guest panelists, we distribute the questions to them a few days ahead of the meeting to give them time to consider their answers and to research any specific data points that might be relevant. So, in order to give me time to get everything organized and send them out to our panelists, please send me your questions NO LATER THAN MONDAY, AUGUST 1. 

If anyone has any questions, either about this meeting or for our executives, please let me know. We appreciate the way you have all stepped up every year with the most amazing and insightful questions, and I’m sure you recognize that the quality of the meeting depends on them. So thanks in advance to everyone for thinking about this and sending questions about any part of the hiring process that might be on your mind.

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.
