Meetings & Schedule

NCJS Online Meetings

North Coast Job Seeker meetings are going online during this season of social distancing,  Using a secure platform, our meetings will now continue "virtually."

Using the secure and encrypted platform GoToMeeting, we are continuing our most important NCJS services:  Meeting "face-to-face" for networking, job search support, and presentations to assist professionals in transition.  Our first virtual meeting was April 27 and was attended by 26 people.  The meeting worked well, and while not the same as "being there" with the group, it was a helpful time of connecting and networking.

 

The next Virtual Networking Meeting will be Monday, May 11.

 

How to prepare for this meeting:

  • Download the GoToMeeting app to your computer or phone (it's free):
    GoToMeeting Download
  • Make sure your tech is working and plan a quiet space to join the meetings.
  • If you do not have webcam/video technology, you will be able to call into the meetings and participate with audio only either from your computer or a phone.
  • Review your "30-Second Elevator Speech" to be able to introduce yourself and clearly communicate your expertise and skills to someone who doesn't know you. We will be using these in the online meetings.  Here's an easy to follow tutorial: Elevator Speech
  • At the designated time, join the meeting using the link provided.  Each meeting "room" will open 15 minutes before the meeting begins in order to make sure you are connected and to become familiar with the GoToMeeting platform.

VIRTUAL NETWORKING 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.

PLAN AHEAD - FOLLOWING MEETING:

Monday, June 22, 2020

VIRTUAL NETWORKING 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.

Whether new to a job search or weary from the process, being with others "in the trenches" can be extremely beneficial.  NCJS offers a constructive environment in which to share challenges and frustrations as well as offering good leads and encouragement to others.  The "Networking and Issue Sharing" meetings are structured to capitalize on the people resources of NCJS, network with well-connected colleagues, and open doors to new possibilities.  You will help others and gain traction for your own job search. As one of the cornerstones of North Coast Job Seekers, we are intentional about providing face-to-face time to explore connections, be introduced to new contacts, discover new opportunities, and share the resources that YOU have to benefit others in the group -- whether in person or in our new "virtual networking" mode.

Additional Suggestions During the Coronavirus Crisis

 

Even during this pandemic, job search work does not take a pause.  We have several recommendations and ways that NCJS can continue to support your job search networking and efforts:

 

  • Our NCJS LinkedIn Group is stronger and more vibrant than ever.  That is an outstanding place to actively network, ask questions, promote discussions, and stay connected with one another.
  • Telephone Networking.  Picking up the phone and talking with other NCJS members you have met, following up on job leads, and networking voice-to-voice is an excellent tool that is not impeded by the COVID-19 virus.
  • Find an Accountability Partner who will commit to helping you stay on track with your job search and with whom you can talk about job search issues.
  • Our NCJS website contains helpful information in our Resource Library that you can explore and use.  We will do our best to bolster that resource during this time.
  • Commit to using this time to focus on your job search via internet searches and online resources, one-on-one meetings (practicing "social distancing" for safety), and making/keeping appointments as you are able.

 

We are committed to supporting you in whatever ways we can.  We commit to keeping you informed of changes and updates to our scheduled events.  Please be safe, smart, and help others do the same.
