JSSA Job Club in Rockville 3/18

March 18, 2014
12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.

JSSA’s Employment and Career Services presents its FREE weekly

Job Search Networking Group in Rockville, MD

with career coach Judy Smith

-80% of jobs are found via networking – learn exactly
how to do it

-Meet with your peers – members help each other learn
from their experiences

-Update your action plan every week – keeping up momentum is critical

-Get expert guidance from a professional career coach


  • A copy of your “one-pager,” (which JSSA will duplicate) which includes:

– Your name, phone number and e-mail address at the top – A brief overview of your background (not a resume!) – Your target companies and/or a list of people you would like to meet

  • Business cards
  • Several copies of your resume for those who want to learn more about you


After an open general discussion, each attendee will:

  1. Deliver a 30-60 second elevator speech that focuses on their unique value proposition
  2. Distribute their one-pager, presenting their networking needs to the group

Participants at the meeting will work to provide support, contacts, suggestions, etc. for each attendee, wherever possible – and will receive the same in kind.

80% of jobs are found via networking! However, this critical job-searching strategy is often underutilized. Those in transition can no longer rely primarily on job search engines to fuel their search. Job seekers need to continuously build a network and stay connected to that network.
