North Coast Job Seekers Meetings
 

Upcoming Meetings

ONLINE MEETINGS NOW 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 information and tutorials on the Meetings & Schedule page.  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.
