Lisle Township Job Club
INTRODUCTION TO NEW MEMBERS
WHAT WE DO?
Welcome to a place where job seekers and job movers come together to encourage, cajole and support each other’s job search. In a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, we learn effective interviewing techniques, networking strategies, and other mechanics of the job campaign. Job leads are shared.
We meet every Wednesday at the Community Career Center in Naperville at 9:30 and 11:30 AM; last Friday of every month at the Lisle Library Conference Room (Coffee is always provided) from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Each person will be asked to give a brief two-minute verbal resume about positions desired & target companies. This is a good experience in selling yourself to a group of people.
Friday meetings have a speaker who addresses aspects of the job search after the morning networking session.
