EaRN Work Search Roundtable

As any of us begins our work search campaign, we need direction, support, and a lot of “how to” information to be successful.  EaRN Work Search Roundtables provide that is an informal, supportive and encouraging environment.

The sessions are open to the public and provide ongoing networking, support, group problem solving, and coaching for individuals during periods of work search and career transition.  When you attend you can expect hot coffee, bagels or ‘celebratory donuts’ when someone’s landed a new job, and a warm welcome.

These sessions are the longest, continuously meeting job clubs in West Michigan–10,000+ have attended the sessions since 1999.  There are currently two locations–one in downtown Grand Rapids (left tab below) and one in Ada/East Kent County (right tab below).

Topics covered include:

  • Verbal Resume/Elevator Pitch
  • Networking
  • Reactive Job Search Tips
  • Proactive Search Strategies
  • Resume Building
  • Cover Letter Tactics
  • Interviewing Preparation/Strategy
  • LinkedIn Usage Recommendations
  • Online Work Search Resources
  • Remaining Positive and Persistent
