North Coast Job Seekers Meeting
Special In-Person & Virtual (Zoom) Hybrid
Holiday Mocktail Party
A Primer for Mixing Job Seeking and
"Post-Pandemic" Party Mingling
In-Person Gathering will be at
Sandler Training by MP Solutions
6060 Rockside Woods Blvd N #105
Our annual Holiday Mocktail Party is back! Like many businesses, organizations, families, and groups of friends, we
will once again gather face-to-face. This will be a hybrid party, so you can certainly join virtually through our Zoom meeting site.
As a job seeker, these holiday gatherings are fraught with challenges. It's awkward when we're asked, "So what do you do?" Or even worse, "How are things at _____ company?" Or what if the person you have been trying to arrange a meeting with for months is actually there! Is it okay to greet them and introduce yourself, or are job search topics a taboo? Can we use a social gathering to do networking?
Join NCJS for a dress rehearsal holiday party where you can practice holding a plate of food, a drink glass, AND shake someone's hand. We will also discover polite ways to include your elevator speech in conversations, talk about being in a job search without being embarrassed, and how to leverage these holiday gatherings into networking opportunities.
If you join us online, you'll need to supply your own appetizers and beverage, but for those coming in person we'll have you covered. See you at the party!

ONLINE MEETINGS ON ZOOM PLATFORM
Beginning with our April 26, 2021 meeting we transitioned to Zoom (from GoToMeeting). Several features available in Zoom will add value to our meetings, particularly breakout rooms, in-meeting polls, and a slightly easier user interface. If you need help with Zoom, we have a few steps below or you can find many very helpful video tutorials online. We look forward to the new platform as we see our online meetings continuing in the foreseeable future.

NCJS Online Meetings
North Coast Job Seeker meetings are held online during this season of social distancing. Using a secure platform, our meetings continue virtually.
Using the familiar video conferencing platform, Zoom, we are continuing our most important NCJS services: Meeting "face-to-face" for networking, job search support, and presentations to assist professionals in transition. While not the same as "being there" with the group, these virtual meetings are a helpful time of connecting and networking. They also serve as good training ground for virtual interviews!
How to prepare for NCJS Virtual meetings:
NCJS Getting Started with Zoom Tutorial
This tutorial can help walk you through the steps of using Zoom for our
NCJS meetings. Topics in the tutorial include a general overview, how to connect
if you already use Zoom, how to download and install Zoom, and how to use Zoom
using your web browser without installing the Zoom app.
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:
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.
