Program July 18: Wise up!! For Free and Improve Your Marketability while You're Job Searching

 


 

Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

Losing a job is generally not an experience that we look forward to, but it often opens up opportunities to add to our skill sets, re-assess priorities and career goals, and go back to work with more skills and credentials than we had when we left.  Most people know about the various government programs that are available to job seekers to pay for skills training, but there are countless other ways to improve skills that cost nothing that you may not know about.

 This Friday, you’ll get lots of great information about what’s available to improve your marketability at little or no cost to you.

 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 three-fer: Stay after the meeting for a session with the Launch Pad Job Club TOASTMASTERS Group which meets right after the regular meeting, from noon-1:00 pm. Then, from 2:00-4:30 pm we will hold our monthly RESUME TWEAKING at the  Consulting Solutions.Net office at 1016 La Posada, suite 297, directly across I-35 from our meeting  place, behind the Doubletree Hotel. Bring 5 copies of your resume which will be critiqued and tweaked by a small team of your peers. We may have the volunteer services of our Ph.D. resume expert there  today as well.
Come early and meet with the job search experts from Indeed.com.
