To ensure that you receive mylist of Upcoming Networking Events, please join the following Yahoo Group thatI set-up at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Individuals,as well as other transition support networking groups, are welcome andencouraged to join.
In addition, mylaptop computer stopped working, so I cannot access my distribution list. Therefore, I can only send this message to myYahoo Networking Groups, until my PC is fixed.
Listed below are this Week's Upcoming Networking Events.All meetings are open to the public, plus you are welcome and stronglyencouraged to attend.
Think of these meetings as opportunities, sort of likegoing to school, to learn something that can reduce your time in transition bygaining knowledge in job search and interviewing skills needed to excel andstandout from your competition.
