Finding that Next Job

Meetup for Job Search Success

images-3In the short time this blog has been in existence, I’ve chronicled a few of the many job search resources that are available to those looking for that next job.  Here’s a resource I found in Richmond and there is probably something similar in your neighborhood.

When I was job hunting, I joined a couple of job seeker groups that I found on the Meetup website.  One was Virginia Career Network and the other was Career Prospectors.  Both groups offer networking and lead sharing to job searchers, as well as how-to presentations on topics such as resume writing, using social media such as LinkedIn and my all time favorite, creating your own personal “elevator speech.”

A search of sites such as Meetup and LinkedIn will yield groups near you.  You can also check facebook and local government agencies for listings of similar organizations.  There are a lot of these groups out there, many are free, others charge a membership fee.  Some groups focus on certain industries such as technology.

Good luck in your job search and keep networking to find that next great job.

  1. I would like to add Twitter to the sites that you’ve mentioned. It’s growing its number of users exponentially so expect the widest of coverage from recruiters and employers from around the world.
