It’s a fact: More people land jobs through active networking—upwards of 85 percent—than by any other job search method. Expand your network with other job seekers (everybody knows somebody), find out who is hiring and about jobs that may never be advertised, share successful strategies and contact names, and practice your “elevator speech”—a brief two-minute verbal resume about positions desired and target employers—and let us help you.


Two dates and locations for this one  . . .

Job Club handbills and elevator pitches are important tools for success in networking and landing your next job. But what makes them effective and memorable? We will review what works and how to best

engage others to actively and concretely support your search. This workshop is for those who are unsure where to start as well as well as experienced networkers who want to rework and refresh their pitches, and would like feedback. Presented by Lisle Township Job Club Facilitator Sarah Breithaupt, MSEd, LPC.

Experiential and fun, this monthly workshop will help focus and ground you to face the challenges of job search. Providing easy techniques to enhance your professional and personal wellbeing, come for your moment of Zen and return to the search fully present, calm and refreshed. No prior experience necessary, however this is also an opportunity for previous attendees and mindful others to refresh their practice as every monthly session is different. Scheduled conveniently after Job Club, which meets at 10:30 at the CCC. Both facilitated by Licensed Professional Counselor Sarah Breithaupt, MSEd, LPC, NCC. Free to members, $15 to non-members.
