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
Selling Yourself to Potential Employers
Speaker: Marvin Montgomery
For more than 30 years, Marvin Montgomery has earned widespread national recognition and praise for his informative, practical and stimulating programs that reflect his basic philosophy: “Preparation and practice are the keys to sales success.”
Marvin began his career with one of the nation’s largest jewelry chains and worked his way up to the Director of Sales position. It was here that Marvin began refining his approach to training. In total he trained more than 1,200 associates in 95 stores during his time with the organization.
Since that time, Marvin’s captivating presentations have assisted hundreds of organizations to meet or exceed their sales goals using his training programs. Many of Marvin’s clients have said that getting “Marvinized” has truly made a difference in their company and Marvin has become a mandatory part of company training.
Marvin is the author of Practice Makes Perfect and Training Wheels. For more information and much more about Marvin's work, visit his website: www.MarvinMontgomery.com. He is also a regular contributor to magazines such as Smart Business Cleveland and Smart Business Akron/Canton, COSE Update, and the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

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.
