Upcoming Meetings

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 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.  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:

  • 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.

The Art of Hello:
Professional Branding

Be Remembered in a Noisy World


Speaker:  Paula Calise

As professionals we all deserve to be known for our achievements, and to be understood for our value proposition.

 

Right now, it’s a particular noisy world. The news is cluttered and people are preoccupied with the Covid-19 virus.

 

Now is not the time to lose ground on being known for your professional achievements, hard work accumulated over years or decades. Be proactive in using your Art of Hello™ message, making it simple and clean so that people can “hear you” over the din of our troubled times.

 

Often called personal branding, the core is introducing yourself to people in a way that the listener understands the essence of your professional life. Once scripted and perfected, your branded introduction is a durable asset. It is useful for emerging professionals, for senior leaders, for business owners, for those seeking positions on boards, and job seekers.

 

A well-conceived professional brand introduction is the old-fashioned elevator pitch polished up to a professional level with a memorable impact. It differentiates you from others. So simple to recognize when done well, and so hard to make one your own. Paula provides the background, tips and rules and a three-step method that results in you having a professional brand introduction of your own to use, that day. It’s called the Art of Hello.
