Program August 29: SURVIVAL! Before, during, and after Unemployment

 


 

Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

For most of us, losing a job is so catastrophic, we often lose the ability to think strategically about what happened.

 Could the layoff have been prevented? Could I have been better prepared? How can I make optimum use of my current situation? How will this layoff affect the rest of my career?

 At this Friday’s meeting, we’ll give you ten tips plus a few more to help you answer those questions and put your current situation in a much more useful framework.

 Stay afterward for the Launch Pad Job Club Toastmasters Group, meeting from noon-1:00 pm.

 Recruiter Alert: We generally have Shawn Fredrick from personifycorp.com in attendance at our meetings. This Friday, there’s a strong possibility we’ll also have David Munoz in attendance representing solarwinds.com.  Check out the job postings on those company websites. If you’re qualified, bring your targeted resume to the meeting.

 Location: The meeting will take place at 10:00 a.m. at the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403, on the corner of MF and Huntland. The Events Center faces Huntland and is located next to the movie theatre.

First-timers: People attending Launch Pad for the first time should arrive by 9:15 a.m. to be able to sign in, grab some refreshments, and be ready for New Member Orientation that takes place from 9:30-10:00 a.m.
By the way, attending a Job Club meeting does count as a bona fide job search contact by the Texas Workforce Commission because we announce so many job openings during our meetings.
NOTE: The folks from INDEED.COM will be at the meeting this Friday. Come at 9:30 and meet with them to check out the latest changes on the indeed.com website.
