Earn Your Worth

The best day of your job search is most likely the day that you receive the call that your favorite company wants to offer you the job. In order to get to that special day, a number of other steps need to be completed much earlier in the job search process. The challenge is that these steps are rarely taught, so you end up learning them through trial and error. The people that can teach you are recruiters, but teaching them to you puts them at a disadvantage. Absolutely Abby will put you in the driver's seat by sharing the Absolute truth and exposing secrets about:

 

       Filling out salary questions on applications and in cover letters

       Answering salary questions on phone screens and during interviews

       Determining your worth in the market

       Negotiating an offer or better yet, multiple offers

 

If you want to stop leaving money on the table, you owe it to yourself to attend this event. Take control of your career today!


For those who are celebrating the Jewish Holidays on the 18th, please accept our apologies and oversight on the schedule. We are going to be working with Abby to give us a second date when she will be able to return and speak again for those unable to attend next weeks meeting.


As usual, if you are facing challenges. especially as it relates to Abby's topic for the night, please come prepared to discuss your questions and challenges.

Important  Announcement

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 mitchfedm@gmail.com or 215-200-9035

Best wishes to all!

 About Us
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.
