My Job Search is Stuck and I Can't Get Up!

Keeping the momentum going when you are looking for a job can be a difficult journey. When family and friends are saying to you daily “Are you still   looking for a job?” … it makes you want to give up! It seems no one understands that you are pounding the pavement every day with little success….YET! Join us on Tuesday, March 17th for a participative discussion entitled “My Job Search is Stuck and I Can't Get Up!" 

Marilyn will focus on the job search issues of our participants with an open group discussion. The group will share their road stories of stumbling blocks and break throughs. Come, you don’t want to miss this session! Let’s get down and dirty with some “real” talk and some “real” answers for the human resource professional.
