Please forward this info along to anyone you may know of on the Boston's South Shore area who could benefit from free job search support.
I am one of several volunteers that are helping to put together a support group for laid off, unemployed/underemployed people on the South Shore. This will be an ongoing weekly meeting that any and all are welcome to attend and will be held in Hanover, MA. Below is a press release with the details. There is also a nice article in the Hanover Mariner with more details here, http://is.gd/k0Uf
There is no charge to attendees and the topics will focus on areas that of most interest such as interviewing tips, internet job search techniques, resume suggestions, networking and more. Attendees are welcome to come to this first meeting or join at a later week, as we will be meeting weekly at the same day and time, so come to one or to all, whatever works for you.
St.Andrew's Episcopal Church, 17 Church St. in Hanover, Ma. announces a newly formed support group for the recently unemployed or underemployed. "I've been laid off! Now what?" Whether you have only held your previous job for a short time or are finding yourself unemployed after many years of working, there are many areas to address in looking for a new job or even a new career. Beginning on Thursday, March 5 @ 9 AM. St.Andrew's will host weekly meetings of the South Shore Employment Support Group. Meetings will be held in the parish hall from 9-10:30 AM. From learning how to deal with the stress of being out of work, to practicing interviewing techniques, our goal is to help provide a supportive environment for networking and learning new skills. In order to assure that we have adequate coffee and pastries please register online at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to bring a resume and business cards if you have them to the meetings.
