Speaker September 5: Craig Foster - CHOICES and CONSEQUENCES



Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

A job search is FULL of choices, and each choice you make brings related consequences.

·         Do you stay in your same field or make a career change?
·         Do you work for yourself or an employer?
·         What industry, function, level are you seeking?
·         What about location, compensation, travel, etc.?
·         And many more!!!
How do you make career choices that BEST FIT YOU – your gifting, your circumstances and that help you fulfill your goals and purpose?
At Friday’s meeting Craig Foster, Executive Director of Job Seekers Network, will share tried and true models of career decision making to help you gain direction and clarity in your job search.  Let us help you move from passively reacting to your choices out of desperation to understanding your competitive advantage and proactively differentiating yourself. Then you can make more purposeful, well considered choices leading to the consequences your heart desires.
Craig Foster has been helping job seekers for over 20 years.  The last 5.5 years he’s been the Executive Director of Job Seekers Network, a networking and equipping group that meets on Monday mornings at 9 a.m. in northwest Austin (http://job-seekers-network.org/about-us/locate-us/).  
Stick around after the meeting and attend the Launch Pad Job Club Toastmasters Group, meeting from noon-1:00 pm.
 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.
