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
Presentation:  "Are You On the Right Path?"

Speaker:  Jim Folger

Pre-registration Required
in order to complete the assessment tool (see below)

Are You On the Right Path?


Jim has been using assessment tools to help clients make better hiring decisions by aligning the right people with the right jobs for almost 2 decades. In Jim’s volunteer work with job seekers he has also used these tools to help job seekers understand whether they are pursuing the right jobs. You will be given an opportunity to take a self assessment tool to identify your behavioral style as well as the things that motivate you. In a group presentation Jim will give an overview of the different behavioral styles and motivators that drive us to action, and how they relate to our jobs.


In This Session You Will:

  • Receive a FREE instrument that details your behavioral style and motivators (a $240 value).

  • Gain a better understanding of yourself, how you interact with others, why you do what you do, and how your behaviors and motivations align with your career.

  • Understand how to read others and adapt your style to improve communication effectiveness.

Jim Folger is the President of OneSource Technical, Inc., a retained search firm specializing in recruiting for Engineering, Management and Sales positions throughout the United States. As a certified behavioral analyst and certified values analyst Jim designed the company’s processes to not only uncover passive candidates, but also identify the candidates who have the capacity for superior performance in the role using a methodology called Job Matching.


Jim is an Engineer with 2 decades of industry experience prior to founding OneSource Technical in engineering, management and customer facing roles. Jim’s background as a hiring manager, and as a recruiter provides a unique perspective that covers both sides of the hiring desk. Jim is on the board of advisors for the North Coast Job Seekers, and has been volunteering his time with various job seeker help groups for the last 20 years.


Should you be in a position in the future to make an important hire where having an excellent fit is important to the organization, consider giving Jim a call for an overview of their unique process.

North Coast Job Seekers Meeting



Job seekers are invited to join with other NCJS members and leaders for constructive networking, job search troubleshooting, sharing what's going well and what is not, and collaborating on job leads.

Networking is part of "Job Search 101," yet many job seekers lack the actual network of "people with connections" during a time of job transition. Networking is one of the cornerstones of North Coast Job Seekers and we are very intentional about providing face-to-face time to explore connections, be introduced to new contacts, discover new opportunities, and share the people resources that YOU have to help another job seeker.  Join with other NCJS members for this face-to-face time of constructive networking, job leads, and issue sharing.

North Coast Job Seekers

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.
