Program August 22: Got a Plan?

 


 

Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

At today’s meeting, we’re going to help you identify Point B. What are your primary target companies? What about your secondary target companies? Do you have a timetable and a survival plan if your unemployment lasts longer than anticipated?

By the time you leave today’s meeting, you may have as many as 40 specific companies in your radar and a specific plan in place to reach out to them. After that, it’s just a matter of one foot after the other until you reach your goal(s).

Stay after the meeting and attend Dennis Snead’s presentation on Job Changes and Your Retirement Assets. That is a terrific presentation that takes place from noon-1:00 or so.

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.
