The Career Connections Job Club is a collaboration of NEIU Alumni Relations and the Office of Career Services to assist alumni in transition between jobs or careers. Participants will learn to market themselves better as job candidates, gain peer support, deepen their sense of a work identity, and have a forum to express progress in their search. Each session lasts two hours where participants will summarize their actions over the last week and describe their upcoming plans with feedback from other participants. There will also be a guest speaker presentation on networking skills. Participants will receive a copy of StrengthsFinder 2.0 which includes a brief assessment so participants can begin to articulate their strengths and value statements.
