Many people essentially quit looking for a job around Halloween believing that nobody hires during the holiday season except retail, UPS, and restaurants. Although that sounds logical, it couldn’t be further from the truth, at least for Launch Pad members. Historically, more LPJC members find jobs during November and December than any other time of the year.
We will explore that curious factoid at this Friday’s meeting along with a list of actions you can take during the holiday season to dramatically improve the success of your job search.
This presentation will take place as usual at our weekly meeting December 6 from 10-11:30.
The weather promises to be nasty. Bundle up. We’ll have coffee, cider, and hot chocolate waiting for you.
First-time Attendees: Arrive by 9:15 a.m. to allow time to sign in, get refreshments, and grab a chair at New Member Orientation from 9:30-10:00.
Location: We meet at the Capital City Events Center, 6700 Middle Fiskville Road, suite 403, corner of MF and Huntland. The Events Center faces Huntland and is located next to the movie theatre.
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.
Toastmasters: The Launch Pad Job Club Toastmasters group meets directly after the Job Club meeting from noon-1:00 p.m. the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Fridays of every month. Sit in on a meeting to see how it works; you’ll be impressed.
