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.

Virtual Presentation:
"Are You On the Right Path?"

 

Speaker: Jim Folger

Pre-Registration Required
in order to complete the assessment tool.

Pre-Registration is now open.  See link below.

Are You On the Right Path?

 

Jim has been using behavioral sciences to help clients make better hiring decisions by aligning the right people with the right jobs for almost 2 decades. In Jim’s volunteer work with job seekers he has also used these tools to help job seekers understand whether they are pursuing the right jobs. You will be given an opportunity to take a self assessment tool to provide insights into your behavioral style, the things that motivate you, and the development levels of 25 soft skills that the instrument looks at. In a group presentation Jim will give an overview of how these relate to our jobs.

 

In This Session You Will:

  • Receive a FREE online instrument utilizing 3 sciences:  Behaviors, Motivations, and Skills (a $350 value).

  • Gain a better understanding of yourself, how you interact with others, why you do what you do, and how your behaviors, motivations, and skills  align with your career.

  • Understand how to read others and adapt your style to improve communication effectiveness.

Once you complete the online registration, Jim will contact you within 24 hours via email with more information and instructions for completing the assessment instrument.  It is essential that you complete the assessment prior to participating in the October 26 NCJS meeting.

Special Virtual Networking Meeting:
"Zoom Mocktail Meeting"

 

You’re Invited!
A Primer for Mixing Job Seeking and Party Mingling
in the Age of Virtual Gatherings


Remember the "normal" holiday cocktail party where business, recruiting, and networking would mingle  like the well-dressed guests around the room?  Many of those gatherings will still be happening, but with the added awkwardness of being virtual.  It was one thing to balance a glass and a plate of hors d'oeuvres while shaking the hand of the person you've been trying to meet with for a month, but now it will be with the added awkwardness of all-things-virtual.  What should I wear (at least in camera view)?  What about computer/camera placement and audio?  And just how DO I get the introductions I am hoping for?


Join NCJS for a dress rehearsal Zoom Mocktail Meeting.  This year you will need to supply your own appetizers and beverages, but we will practice this new art of virtual meeting and networking.  We'll include tips for working in your elevator speech, how to navigate introductions, and getting yourself noticed without being overbearing – because this is, after all, yet another opportunity for networking.
