Raffle: Donated by Razzino Associates
On Tuesday evening, November 5th, MIS Network Associates (MNA), IT-Networking, the
ETP Network, TENG, The Breakfast Club of NJ, Monmouth Networking, and Careers In Transition ( CIT) will host a combined dinner meeting for members, alumni, friends, and guests at The Holiday Inn in Totowa, NJ. Our speaker will be Abby Kohut who will speak on the use she makes of LinkedIn as a recruiter. The presentation will be the view from the other side of the table. Abby's presentation will be an update of her previous comments on her use of LinkedIn by a recruiter.
Otherwise known to job seekers as "Absolutely Abby", a leader in corporate recruiting for the past 16 years, Abby has held positions such as Senior Director of Recruiting & Career Development for Kaplan, Inc., Employment Director at Sabert Corporation, and Manager of Global Recruiting for Alpharma, Inc. She is currently the President of Staffing Symphony, LLC, a staffing consulting company, and over the past 6 years has had clients in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, non-profit, legal, and publishing industries. A leader in her field, and a well-known speaker on campaigning to get connected, Abby can help you find the position you are striving for. She has facilitated employment for attendees at over 200 events like this in the recent past, and has set a personal goal to help one million job seekers.
The schedule for the dinner meeting on November 5th will be:
6:00 to 6:45 pm – Registration, "speed dating", and cash bar
6:45 to 7:15 pm - Introductions
7:15 pm - Dinner
- 8:00 pm – Abby Kohut's Presentation on the use of LinkedIn
9:30 Approx – Raffle – You Must Be There To Win
The informal networking groups are so helpful in networking that we will do the "speed dating" again on the 5th before we sit down for dinner and the general introductions. Briefly, these informal "dates" consist of up to 4 people and last for 5 to 10 minutes. At the end of the 10 minutes, the groups break up and new ones are formed with different participants. Suggested dialogues for your "speed dating" encounters will be provided at the registration desk in case you are at a loss for what to say during these conversations.
There will be an opportunity to circulate up to 50 copies of your resume, personal bio, leads, or other appropriate material in a handout for each participant from the dinner.
The cost will be $45 for everyone if forwarded by mail or other to John Sampson by
COB Monday, November 4th at 2 Blackfoot Cir, Wayne NJ 07470. Checks should be made out to John Sampson who can be reached by phone at 973-248-3251 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations can also be made by contacting Lizanne Fiorentino at email@example.com but checks must be sent directly to John.
An initial list of attendees will be emailed to all the RSVPs, members of MNA, the
ETP Network, TENG, The Breakfast Club of NJ, Monmouth Ntwkg, IT-Net, CIT and other interested parties the weekend of November 2nd and 3rd for initial review and correction. The RSVP list will facilitate networking at the November 5th meeting and can be used to communicate with attendees in advance or after the dinner meeting. For those attendees who are working, current work affiliation, email address, three previous companies you've worked for/consulted at, professional job interest or position availability must be included in your RSVP.
For those attendees who are in transition, three target companies should be included in your RSVP as well as the type of position you seek.
A "final" numbered RSVP list of attendees will be available along with the pre-published questions and an ID badge at the registration desk on the 5th. Your number on the final RSVP list should be part of your introduction: "I'm number x on the RSVP list …". All attendees should have their sharp, crisp, 30 second elevator speech at the ready. Too many "ahs, dees and doeses" will be cut off unceremoniously. Remember, you and your introduction will be between the rest of the attendees and dinner!
A final RSVP list of the actual attendees will be emailed to everyone who participated by November 10th.
We will accept a LIMITED number of walk-ins on the 5th. Anyone who attends on the 5th and whose check has not been received by
COB on the 4th will be charged $60 WITHOUT EXCEPTION. There will be NO refunds and no shows WILL be billed.
Again, bring 50 copies of your bio/resume, leads, or materials you wish to be included in the handout the evening of November 5th.

Please join us for what always is a well attended evening of lively discussion, great networking opportunities, and a chance to just catch up. Remember this is NOT just an IT event.
