North Coast Job Seekers is a job search support group for professionals in transition or those who are currently employed but seeking new career options. We provide tools, tips, resources, techniques and networking opportunities to help maximize a job search. If in transition, or want to explore new career options, we encourage attending North Coast Job Seekers meetings.
"North Coast" refers to the geographic region of NE Ohio, particularly the metropolitan Cleveland area (which is on the shores of Lake Erie, hence the "North Coast" of the U.S.). However the resources available here are offered to any who might benefit from them.

North Coast Job Seekers Meeting
Ohio Means Jobs | Cleveland - Cuyahoga County
Training Grants and Other Benefits for Job Seekers
Speaker: Panel of OMJ Staff and Beneficiaries
Ohio Means Jobs | Cleveland – Cuyahoga County
OMJ has training dollars available and are looking for applicants for grants of up to $8,500. In an effort to help people start training programs by January 1, OMJ will be leading a program and providing opportunities for one-on-one consultations at our next NCJS meeting.
Among the many services and programs of Ohio Means Jobs are workforce training grants. Many job seekers have experienced challenges trying to qualify for training dollars through this program. NCJS has arranged for OMJ staff to present details about benefit opportunities, the application process, and individual meetings to discuss qualifying for the grants. Included in the panel presentation will be an individual who used an $8,500 IT training grant and landed successfully after updating her skills at age 60!
This is an outstanding opportunity to learn whether or not you would qualify for an OMJ grant and how to apply and access the funding as early as January 1, 2017.

NO MEETING -- CHRISTMAS/NEW YEARS WEEK
Career transitions are seldom easy. The many pieces of a job search can be overwhelming, and fitting those pieces together to find your next position can be tricky. North Coast Job Seekers wants to provide support, training, and resources as you go through your job search.
NCJS is a completely volunteer organization bringing together those in job transition with leaders, presenters, resources, and other job seekers. Job seekers themselves bring a multitude of resources to NCJS with knowledge, experience, skills, and professional networks. Together we share a mission to help motivated people succeed through career changes.
North Coast Job Seekers meets in the Gym/Fellowship Hall of Pioneer Memorial Presbyterian Church in Solon, Ohio at 7:30pm on the second and fourth Monday of the month. We actively network, discuss job search issues, and get terrific tips from job search experts. If you are in transition or want to explore new career options, we encourage you to start attending North Coast Job Seekers meetings.
