Wed Aug 24th, 6:00-8:00pm CT Zoom Webinar on “30 WAYS TO GET UNSTUCK IN YOUR JOB SEARCH” plus a Round of Networking. $20.00. The job search is full of peaks and valleys and many job seekers often don’t make the progress they deserve. They aren’t uncovering new target companies. They aren’t getting great introductions to key influencers. They aren’t receiving many interviews. And they’re spending a lot of their time answering online ads and getting nowhere. THEY ARE STUCK.

There is a solution and during this webinar, NSENG Founder/CEO & Job Search Coach, MARTY GILBERT, will present very tactical actions you can take immediately to get out of your rut to shorten your job search. If you identify with any of the following characteristics, then this webinar could prove to be quite helpful for you:

  • Not getting at least 1 interview each week
  • Not having at least 10 networking conversations each week
  • Not getting at least 35 LinkedIn profile views each week
  • Not adding at least 50 new LinkedIn connections each week
  • Spending more than 15% of your time answering online ads
  • Don’t have a job search marketing plan
  • Aren’t tapping into the “hidden job market”
  • Starting to lose confidence and second-guessing yourself

This live event will get recorded, so if you can’t attend the live event, you can always view the recording at a future date as long as you register or purchase the webinar later.

Following the presentation, there will be a round of virtual networking via Zoom breakout rooms so that you can meet other attendees, share a bit about your background and gain introductions into target companies that you couldn’t get into on your own.

And don’t forget, if you buy 2 webinars, you get a 3rd one for free until Aug 31st.

Are you struggling with staying motivated in your current job or within your job search? Is stress and anxiety at times paralyzing you from making that next career move?

One of the many things we aren’t fully prepared for when it comes to job searching is how long it takes and how demoralizing it can be.

Rejection is awful, and it’s hard not to take it personally. Sometimes the rejection really isn’t about you; sometimes it is about them. But here’s the good part: once you get a job, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you forget how bad the process was.

Being depressed while job searching is a surefire way not to get hired. But how do you process the negativity and come through as a confident candidate in your letters and interviews if you are feeling rejected by the system?

The key is to cultivate resiliency.

Join this workshop to learn strategies, identify the trends and experience a resiliency makeover. Attend this workshop and you will learn:

  • Anxiety management strategies
  • Stress Management strategies
  • Resiliency Reboot strategies

About the Group: The goal of the Career Networking Group in Montgomery County is to provide a supportive environment where members can obtain ideas, direction, and support and learn skills to improve their job search and career.

Friday Sept. 16, 2022 9:45 am-12:00 pm, Mercer County PSG presents Jan Goodman – How to Thrive during Transition and Change

Times of transition hold both challenges and opportunities. What are you really committed to in this moment?

Tony Robbins once said, “Quality questions create a quality life.”

  • Is your behavior consistent with what you are committed to?
  • Are you present and engaged in your own life?
  • Are you satisfied with your choices?
  • Would you like to make better choices in the future? Our life is made up of decisions. When we ask the right questions it heightens our awareness and allows us to see more clearly. The strategies and philosophies that will be presented in this workshop provide attendees with tools that self-empower. The workshop is designed to help you achieve your personal best both professionally and personally. It’s a point of view that is based on choice. Self-empowerment feeds our unconscious mind to make conscious choices that allow us to be successful.

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.
