Job Club

 

Lisle Township Job Club

Welcome!
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.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We meet virtually every Wednesday at 9 AM via Zoom in partnership with the Career & Networking Center in Naperville:

(Registration Required)  – https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0qc-iqrzopH9HV7at434a4tuEdCOe4sjaP

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.

AGAIN, WELCOME!
