SJN is a non-profit community group of business leaders and volunteers. We are not a job placement forum, and we do not match candidates to openings nor do we send resumes to employers or recruiters. There is no guarantee of employment either directly through this group or as a result of association with SJN.

We do, however, provide education in the job search process and all attendees have the opportunity to meet and work with people who offer support and guidance during employment transition. Many resources for finding Jobs in Phoenix are available through this website and via participation in the SJN mailing list, the Phoenix Jobs Job Board and by interacting with members and volunteers at meetings and afterwards.

Visit SJN Here.

This fall, Scottsdale Commmunity College (SCC) offers a Saturday-only Introductory Solar System Astronomy class beginning Saturday, August 17.

AST111 (3-credit lecture class) and AST113 (companion 1 credit laboratory) satisfy the “Quantitative Science” requirement for the three Arizona public universities and the Maricopa Community Colleges.

Both classes meet once/week at SCC’s Main Campus, 9000 E. Chaparral Rd. in Scottsdale. Saturday classes are often convenient for working persons, K-12 teachers, high school students & business travelers starting or continuing their college education.

AST 113 lab meets Noon to 2:40 p.m. Saturdays, also starting August 17th.

Students learn practical astronomy, history of astronomy and the Scientific Revolution, Solar System science and its origin and fate. Lab exercises provide complementary “hands-on” practical learning about the Solar System.

Students also use SCC’s indoor Planetarium and various telescopes for outdoor observing. Digital cameras can photograph astronomical objects viewed. An evening telescope observing session will be scheduled to accommodate student schedules.

Students may enroll for college Credit (letter grade or Pass/Fail) or for No Credit (Auditing the classes).

Students taking AST111 and/or AST113 for college credit must have completed Introductory Algebra (MAT 091), or the equivalent, or one year of high school algebra.
