JOB SEARCH TEAMS
ACCOUNTABILITY PROGRAM

The Job Search Accountability program is structured as virtual 10-week group meetings of 10 to 12 members. Team members discuss their job search plans, enhance their strengths and improve their skills to secure employment or excel in their career path. The program runs twice a year, commencing mid-January and September. In addition, a Spring-Summer series is considered each year. We offer flexible meeting options, including daytime, evenings, or weekends, to accommodate diverse schedules. To join, visit this page at the beginning of January and September for the registration link and program details. Throughout the program, participants delve into topics such as: Resumes, Networking, LinkedIn, Marketing Plans, Interviews, Elevator Pitches, Personal Branding and Transferable Skills. As part of the program, Team members use this website in a private community as the primary source for collaboration.

JOB SEARCH TEAMS SUCCESS STORIES 

Alfred Snyder_edited.jpg

“As a recent graduate of the Job Search Accountability Teams, I can honestly say it was a game changer for me. I learned so much! Completely revamped my resume, other sheets to show case my skills, elevator pitches, improved my interview knowledge, how to research the company you're interested in or vice versa, proper social networking on LinkedIn, and lastly salary negotiations. I'm sure I've missed some stuff, but I promise anyone that is interested, it is absolutely worth the investment of time and work. I work in healthcare, and I was truly blessed to have a new role before the end of the workshop and, I still wanted to complete it. It's that good! Thank you Bob for such an amazing organization and to all the wonderful people who are a part of it!"
