People in Group Video Call

Starting your search for a job can be lonely and overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to start. Fortunately, you don’t have to do your job search alone! You can get daily support and encouragement from Employment Services staff and other job seekers by joining an Active Job Search group.

What Is an Active Job Search Group?

Active Job Search groups are Church-sponsored support groups for anyone actively seeking new or better employment. When you join an Active Job Search group, you’ll participate in daily meetings facilitated by volunteer employment advisors and job search professionals. Online groups meet daily over Zoom for 60 to 90 minutes. Daily meetings consist of job-search skills training, support from other job seekers, job lead sharing, networking, and daily check-ins with peers.

When Can I Join an Active Job Search Group?

Anyone needing help finding a job can join an Active Job Search group at any time. Meetings occur Monday through Friday at the indicated times, except on major US holidays. You are welcome to attend any group meeting that meets your schedule and needs. Click on the link below to register for a group in your area.
