The Power of Job Search Support Groups

See also

Have you ever wondered why there are so many job search support groups around? Or conversely, have you ever wondered why there is no job search support group close to where you live?

There are good answers to both questions, and more information, about the power of groups to support your search.

Hey hear this!

Jeff Altman of Job Search Radio interviews me Terrence Seamon on Starting a Networking Group Focused on You:

In this wide-ranging <30 minute conversation, Jeff Altman, the Big Game Hunter of recruiting, asks me about the role, and the power, of networking support groups in today's job search.

We touch on many things including:

  • The group I started at my church, St. Matthias in Somerset, NJ
  • The Neighbors helping Neighbors groups started by John Fuggazie
  • Different kinds of groups such as skills, job leads, and mastermind groups
  • The guide that I co-wrote with Janice Lee Juvrud
  • How to start a group...forming the team, clarifying your purpose, and what to expect early on

I hope you will listen. Make a cup of coffee, sit comfortably, and get ready for a practical and inspiring exchange between Jeff and myself.
