This is a group for professionals "in [employment] transition" in the general vicinity of Bergen to Hudson to Passaic to Essex to Morris to Union to Somerset--and other--counties, NJ in which to network, job hunt and seek & share relevant information, etc.
Also we have some counselors, coaches, and other professionals, as members, who generously pop in sometimes to share information and answer our questions!
Maplewood/South Orange Professionals in Transition meets in person, twice a month, on Mondays at 10:15am, downstairs at the Main Branch of Maplewood Library [on Linked In you can join "Maplewood/South Orange Professionals Networking Group"];
Jobseekers of Montclair meets in person every Wednesday at 7:15pm, at St. Luke's Church--see www.jobseekersofmontclair.org [on Linked In you can join "Jobseekers of Montclair"];
there are many other places to go "in-person"--check out our files and discussion forum (and tell us what resources you use)--
but please help us to start and to continue conversations, forward emails that you receive, and upload documents & links, right here, whenever it's convenient for you!
When you join this virtual group, please do take a moment to introduce yourself. Have you been to any of the library or church hall meetings? How did you find the online group? What questions do you have? (What answers can you give us?!) What topics would you like to discuss? What have you learned? (What do you wonder?) Perhaps about resumes, interviewing, cover letters, salary negotiations, etc.
What is your desired employment situation? Get to know us. Let us get to know you.
Whom would you like to meet? Maybe one or more of us can network you to an "informational conversation"...
