Career Networking Opportunity and Discussion (Virtual)
Thursday, November 4, 7:00pm-8:30pm
Featured Speaker: Lisa Colten of Lee Hecht Harrison and Exzeto!
The current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many aspects of our lives, not the least of which is the economy and job security. We recognize that there may be people in our community who find themselves with limited work hours or perhaps furloughed or without a job due to the pandemic. Others may not feel comfortable returning to the office due to the spread of the Delta variant and may want to find new remote work options or develop a network of contacts to advance their career.
We know there are local and regional career networking organizations, but some may have a steep cost or have an affiliation that does not reflect our community’s values. We would like to offer a career networking opportunity that is free and open to all (this initial meeting will initially take place via Zoom).
Our career networking opportunity will be modeled after the Business Executive Networking Group / Great Careers Group (BENG/GC), see https://www.meetup.com/Northern-Virginia-BENG/. There is no membership requirement, and you don’t need to be an experienced business executive or seeking employment to participate in this free session. The meeting will begin with our speaker, Lisa Colten of Lee Hecht Harrison and Exzeto!, who will talk about Insights into the DMV Marketplace vis-a-vis Hiring and Vaccine Mandates. This will be followed by a networking session (Recruiters are invited to participate).
Heather Rosen, a franchise and business start-up expert who organizes the NoVA area BENG/GC meetings on a volunteer basis, has graciously helped coordinate this Zoom networking opportunity for our community. Our goal is to bring people seeking employment or wanting to advance or change their career path together with those who could potentially provide job contacts or other information.
Whether you are interested in networking to expand your career options or someone who has knowledge and information that could help others (sharing what you know about job vacancies, resume writing, LinkedIn profiles, interviewing, career coaching, etc.) – this is for you!
To Information and to Register: Email Heather Rosen at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st with your contact information (she will provide you with the Zoom link to access the meeting).
This program is brought to you in collaboration with the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia.
