If you're looking for a job ... you don't have to do it alone.

 

A job Club is an ongoing gathering of job seekers committed to meeting regularly and helping each other. For people who are energized in groups, joining a Job Club is a cost-effective method to bring structure, training, and support to stay on track and find employment more quickly.

 

According to one study, Job Club members “enjoyed lower levels of frustration with the search process; devoted more time to job search activities; benefited from the emotional support, increased accountability, networking opportunities, and the group learning.”  (Journal of Employment Counseling)

 

A Job Club is a good choice if you are ... 

 

  • isolated and stressed and having trouble sustaining motivation

  • hungry for more structure, accountability, and constructive feedback 

  • spurred to action knowing you'll be presenting regular updates to the group  

  • eager to expand your professional network and hear what others are doing

  • open to learning new skills and engaging in multiple job search strategies simultaneously

 

What to expect ...  

 

Sessions start with "Go Rounds" to lengthen, strengthen and practice Elevator Pitches. Then, each member 

offers an update, announces successes, shares job-related issues, and asks for advice. During each session, a new skill, strategy, or resource is introduced and tested. The meeting comes to a close after members sketch out and share their To-Do list for the upcoming week.
