ENG: The Highly Effective Networking Group w/Keith Owens (1st & 3rd Thursday)

The meeting will focus on helping you land that next great job sooner through networking and group problem-solving.

Be ready to help others with networking and sharing information on how you have solved job search-related problems.


ENG: The Business Forum w/ Conor Cunneen & Steve Eschbach (2nd & 4th Thursday) 

ENG: The Business Forum offers those in Job Search and Career Development the opportunity to interact with like-minded individuals to develop their skill sets and knowledge in a friendly but challenging environment. We will facilitate discussion and learning on the dramatically changing workplace, technology, staying motivated while working from home, attitude, and how you can feel good about yourself during challenging times. Sometimes we'll push you, sometimes we'll challenge you, but always, we will be positive so that you can leave with more knowledge and skills to help you grow and develop during these challenging times.  On the 4th Thursday of the month, a guest presenter will speak to varied related topics.
