Lost your job? Try the Park City Career Network

In late August 2009, RecruiterGuy was one of the 4 volunteer professionals who organized the Park City Career Network with the goal of helping people out of work find their next job. Since then, twenty of the people who have participated have found positions in their fields; and another ten have started small businesses.

This is a great organization with two recruiting professionals, a corporate turnaround consultant, and a professional counselor who provides emotional support. Few of these volunteer organizations have this breadth of experience, especially the emotional support.

The Park City Network has brought in specialists to counsel members on how to meet their expenses and how to work with creditors. On Monday, Feb. 1, 2010 from 9 to 10:30 AM, bring a copy of the job description of a position that interests you and your resume that you would use to reply to that position. We will compare the two and then practice interview selected members (depending on how many people show). An executive Human Resource graduate of our group will work with us tomorrow. The Feb. 1st meeting will be at St. Mary’s of the Assumption Catholic Church Parish Hall on Rt. 224 in Park City.

Future Monday morning meetings will be held from 9 to 10:30 AM across Rt. 224 at Temple Har Shalom. Future speakers will feature tax experts and career counselors. You may join the Park City Career Network LinkedIn Group to view discussions including meeting agendas, job search related news, and job postings. Human Resource and Recruiting professionals are invited to join this LinkedIn group and post their positions free in our Jobs section.
