Program July 25: AAAAAAAAAAAARRRGH!!! How to Manage the Overwhelming Process of Finding a Job

 


 

Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

Losing a job ranks at the very top of the list of Life’s Most Stressful Events, almost at the same level as death of a family member.  LOOKING for the next job ought to make the list as well. It is equally stressful, and it is labor-intensive. The number of tasks that have to be handled in order to find a job is mind-boggling. And overwhelming. Where to start. What to do first. No wonder so many jobseekers can’t go to sleep, due to worry, and then can’t get out of bed in the morning because of avoidance.

OK, enough with the depressive stuff you already know.  At this Friday’s meeting, we’ll briefly discuss the overwhelming nature of the job search process and provide advice on how to manage it, stress-free.  Without the use of pharmaceuticals.

 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.
This Friday is a two-fer: Stay after the meeting for a session with LPJC board member Dennis Snead, a financial planner, who will conduct a one-hour presentation on Job Loss and Your Retirement Assets. Dennis will provide the facts and answer your questions on how to manage your money throughout your unemployment.
Come early and meet with the job search experts from Indeed.com.
Future Speakers:
TBA: Gaius Cameron of Randstad Staffing returns with SPEED INTERVIEWING
TBA: Angela Loeb
Date to be announced: Terry O’DonnellHow I Landed My Dream Job
