Launch Pad Job Club Announcement Frog

This Friday will be a special one for LPJC. Veronica Zaragovia from Public Radio station KUT will be visiting our meeting. She’s doing a story on older job seekers in the Austin market and thought she might find a few of those highly-talented-but-often-overlooked individuals in our midst. Because of Veronica, our program this Friday will focus on the various challenges job seekers face in the Austin market: long-time unemployment, lack of marketable skills, overqualification, unwillingness to relocate, age discrimination, and any others you’d like to bring up. We’ll be focusing on SOLUTIONS to those problems, not whining about them, so leave your tissues at home.  [Note: scroll down to see additional events taking place at this Friday's 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.
There’s more:  Come early or stay late: LPJC member Estella Guerrero will be taking head shot photos for free before the meeting and for a while after the meeting. These photos would be suitable for LinkedIn or Facebook sites.
This Friday is a two-fer: Stay after the meeting for our Launch Pad Job Club Toastmasters Group meeting which goes from 12:00-1:00 pm.
NOTE: The folks from INDEED.COM will not be at the meeting this Friday. They will be back Friday, August 8
Future Speakers:
TBA: Gaius Cameron of Randstad Staffing returns with SPEED INTERVIEWING

Date to be announced: Terry O’DonnellHow I Landed My Dream Job
