Manyof the organizations listed below offer networking meetings that convenemonthly, semi-monthly, or weekly. Try to attend at least one or two meetings aweek. Many of these groups meet in the evening, so it will not take time awayfrom your daily job search activities. Plus, they have interesting speakers whooffer valuable tips on: 1) Resume preparation, 2) Effective job searchtechniques, 3) Interviewing, 4) Post Interview Follow-up, 5) LinkedIn, 6)Branding, 7) Time Management, and various other helpful job search relatedtopics.

Think of these meetings as opportunities, sort of like going toschool, to learn something that can reduce your time in transition by gainingknowledge in job search and interviewing skills needed to excel and standoutfrom your competition.

Also,in order to maximize your network, try to attend meetings in differentgeographical areas, but especially in towns where you are targeting companiesthat you would like to work for. Not only will you learn valuable job searchskills, but greatly expand your circle of friends. Who knows, the person youmeet at one of these networking events may be able to introduce you to a hiringmanager at one of your target companies.

Intraveling to these meetings, consider car pooling. Not only will it reduce the cost of drivingthere, but the friendly conversation will make the ride seem to go much faster.

Hello Dr. Tom,

I was just reviewing your announcement and I think that there is an error here.

My presentation on June 3 is at Princeton Public Library in Princeton and not at Troy Hill Library in Parsippany.

I am not sure if you want to issue a correction on this or not? But in any case if you do then here is the announcement link via the Princeton events calendar.

Subject: June 2013 Networking Events

Ramsey JSWT Members:

Listed below are the upcoming June 2013 Networking Events. All meetings are open to the public, plus you are welcome and strongly encouraged to attend.

Many of the organizations listed below offer networking meetings that convene monthly, semi-monthly, or weekly. Try to attend at least one or two meetings a week. Many of these groups meet in the evening, so it will not take time away from your daily job search activities. Plus, they have interesting speakers who offer valuable tips on: 1) Resume preparation, 2) Effective job search techniques, 3) Interviewing, 4) Post Interview Follow-up, 5) LinkedIn, 6) Branding, 7) Time Management, and various other helpful job search related topics.

Think of these meetings as opportunities, sort of like going to school, to learn something that can reduce your time in transition by gaining knowledge in job search and interviewing skills needed to excel and standout from your competition.

Also, in order to maximize your network, try to attend meetings in different geographical areas, but especially in towns where you are targeting companies that you would like to work for. Not only will you learn valuable job search skills, but greatly expand your circle of friends. Who knows, the person you meet at one of these networking events may be able to introduce you to a hiring manager at one of your target companies.

In traveling to these meetings, consider car pooling. Not only will it reduce the cost of driving there, but the friendly conversation will make the ride seem to go much faster.

For a list of networking groups in your target areas, check out Alex Freund's <http://www.landingexpert.com/ec/210/NetworkingEvents.pdf> The Landing Expert List at www.landingexpert.com. This outstanding compilation of both Small Job Search Work Teams and Large Networking Groups contains 76 pages of information, listing hundreds of transition support organizations in the surrounding five states. Make it a point to join a few groups in your area; what you learn at these meetings will definitely help shorten your time in transition.

If anyone is aware of an upcoming meeting that you would like to share with the group, please let me know and I will gladly include it with my weekly updates.

Thank you,

Tom Donohue
