Meetings & Schedule

ONLINE MEETINGS NOW ON ZOOM PLATFORM

Beginning with our April 26, 2021 meeting we are transitioning 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:

  • If you need a tutorial for using Zoom (using the app or using the web interface) please use our NCJS Getting Started with Zoom tutorial (see below).
  • 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 Zoom platform.

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.
