CNM hosts small virtual job search accountability teams, led by two experienced facilitators, that meet virtually once a week for 10 weeks. There is no cost to attend. Just a commitment to actively participate as a team member.

 

Meetings focus on solving members' job search challenges. Members set weekly goals and hold each other accountable for achieving those goals through their job search journey. 

CNM also offers a free 10-week virtual Executive Accountability group, for seasoned business leaders. This program is tailored for executives managing companies of 20 or more employees, with experience in operations and strategy.  Team members commit to weekly assignments focused on navigating the senior-level "hidden job market." Each 10-week series has limited enrollment.

SUCCESS STORIES

I want to thank you all for your help and support in my journey.  Finding the right opportunity has been a longer-term process than I had initially imagined, but one in which I’ve personally grown and benefitted.  And I’m thankful to have joined your group with the commitment, guidance, and compassion you provided.  If anything, the current environment underscores how well we can provide remote support to one another.

Scott, TN

This ministry is an absolute marvel and answer to many people's prayers. When we hit the end of a job and have no idea what to do next, these people understand and are polished professionals who volunteer hours of their time each week to help us out who are in need. And the free workbook on necessary steps to take to find the next career/job, is also a wonderful gift full of wisdom and guidance.

Kay, DC

Thank you for all the help CNM provided in my job search!  I feel truly blessed that I found the group.  I will definitely be recommending the program for any of my friends or colleagues who find themselves searching for a job in these trying times! If I can give back to CNM and help another member in their search, I'm happy to do so!

Colleen, VA

The past few months had its unique challenges and unforeseen circumstances, but I was able to manage it and move along only because of your support, advice, kindness, efforts, time and dedication as well as the support of my wonderful family. You have become part of my family and I sure will miss seeing you. I have enjoyed the sessions, webinars, Zoom meetings, and have learned a lot from each and every one of you. I will never forget all you have done and hope I can similarly contribute to others moving forward.
