Newtown Career Networking Group
We typically Meet the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays @ 7:00 pm
(networking starting at 6:45 pm)
Our next meeting is January 19, 2021
We will continue to meet on a virtual basis until we hear from the Newtown Presbyterian Church that they have resumed having the public meet indoors.
And we are pleased to have as a guest presenter, Mr. Ralph Andracchio who is going to be presenting on the subject of Fear of the future. And how it may prevent us from taking the proper actions to move ahead in our job search. I have heard great things about this presentation so you don't want to miss it.
If anyone has recently landed within the past 45 days, please try and attend our meeting and share your experiences with the rest of the group. Sharing those successes helps to give encouragement to those still in search mode. And it also allows the rest of the group insights into techniques and or steps which have helped others to succeed and land in a job.
We will also try and share networking suggestions if time permits. Lastly we would ask that if any group members would like to become one of our meeting facilitators, please reach out to me via a separate email. We used to have five in this group in the old days, So plenty of room. And time commitment does not have to be 100 %. We just ask and hope for some steady consistency in helping others land and contributing to the group's functioning in a supportive way.
Facilitators: Andrew Gelfand & Mitch Goldberg

Please join me in welcoming Andrew Gelfand as the new Director of the Newtown Career Networking Group. Andrew is a superior networker, and one of the co-founders of Whine & Dine, a leading networking group serving the Human Resources community. He is currently engaged as an HR professional for a local non-profit organization. With this background he enjoys a broad base of contacts, as well as access to a wide host of recruiters.
Andrew will be supported by Mitchell Goldberg who was the founder and director of another local job-seeker support group. Mitchell brings thirty years of practical Marketing, Sales, and business management knowledge and experience to the group, and will be a tremendous resource.
It has been my distinct pleasure to meet and assist so many fine people in their search to find not only their next job, but to ensure that that job would also be the RIGHT position for them. So it is with mixed feelings that I pass the baton of leadership to Andrew and Mitchell. Happy about the prospect of opening up the next chapter of my life in Wilmington, NC, and knowing that I leave the group in good hands - with strong skills and a shared passion for helping others. I'm sure they will bring with them fresh ideas that will only strengthen the value of the service we provide, but at the same time I am saddened that I will miss the warmth and friendships that we've developed with one another over the past eight years. Please feel free to keep in touch. You can reach me at email@example.com or 215-200-9035
Best wishes to all!
The Newtown Career Networking Group, was established in January, 2010 by and for talented people who were displaced by the recession. We're a secular group, sponsored by the Newtown Presbyterian Church, serving the entire community including Lower Bucks County and the surrounding area
Job-seekers today face a far more competitive environment, complicated by the impact of increasingly complex and sophisticated technology, than ever before, But since our inception we've helped guide over 230 business and technical professionals and others from across the employment spectrum into satisfying new positions.
Our process is not proprietary. It consists of helping you understand and express your value to a new employer, focusing on the jobs and companies that interest you and match your skills, personal interests, and cultural fit, then using the power of networking to give you access to the hiring managers within those companies
Working with other job-seeker support groups, career coaches, state and local agencies, and others we provide you access to many resources to assist you in your job search.
So come and join us! We meet at the Newtown Presbyterian Church on the first and third Tuesdays of every month, form 7;00 to 8:30pm. There is no charge for our services. We just ask that you bring a canned good or non-perishable food item for the church's food pantry.
