PWOCN Job Clubs!
November 14, 2008
Looking for a job, especially in this economy, can be difficult and discouraging but you don't have to go it alone. It seems that almost daily we are hearing stories of layoffs and changes in the workplace but believe me there still are great jobs available and many companies are seeking diverse candidates just like you. One of the main goals of The Professional Women of Color Network is supporting women of color and it is with great excitement that we are announcing the formation of Industry Specific Job Clubs for Women of Color!
What is a Job Club?
Job connection clubs are small groups of people who meet regularly to talk candidly about job searching and career advancement with the goal of supporting the success of all members.
Why Join A Job Club? Most of us don't relish the idea of embarking on a job search. It can be a lonely and discouraging process. Because of the length of time it can take to find work, many people lose momentum and grow frustrated. But it doesn't have to be that way.
Becoming part of a job club can offer valuable assistance and renewed optimism. It may also bring a strong sense of accountability that gets you going in the right direction. When you know that your fellow members expect to hear regularly about your progress, you're more inclined to have a productive period leading up to the club meeting. How Do I Join?Select the Job Club you are most interested in joining and send the following information via email to
