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.

NCJS Job Search Process
The NCJS Job Search Process Road Map is the core of our approach to career transition. The downloadable document in our Resource Library
outlines each of the three major waypoints on the road map. It is important to note that the Road Map is not a simple
1-2-3 step method. Rather, it is more organic and dynamic – the steps lead to one another, and in the end lead back to the beginning. It is easier than it sounds, is more intuitive, and is more effective than a "do this list of things and you'll land your dream job" approach. This is our Road Map for guiding us through the next career move in ways that use our best gifts, skills, passions, and experiences to our advantage.
