Newtown Career Networking Group
We typically Meet the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays @ 7:00 pm
(networking starting at 6:45 pm)
Newtown (PA) Network Group - August 20th, 2019
During this session we are going to hold open meetings with no specific agenda. In past years, we asked people to come prepared to discuss challenges they have been encountering in their own job searches. So for some, it might be about a good resume or cover letter. For others it may be about being able to do a 30 second elevator pitch. Still others have issues with interviewing while others have problems with trying to stay optimistic. So whatever your challenges, come prepared to discuss them and get some great feedback, advice and suggestions to help you move forward. And of course we can always talk about networking and how and why it is so important and how to do it.
Try and bring canned goods to donate to the food bank as our way to thank the church for allowing us to meet and not charge us for the space.
Location: Newtown Presbyterian Church; 25 N. Chancellor St.

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.
