CREATING LEADS and NETWORKING:
-What does “AIR” have to do with it?
Join us on Tuesday March 18, 2008 as we roll out the fourth session of the SJN CURRICULUM on the Job Search Process.
“I called a friend of mine, John, and asked him if there was an opening at his company. He said he wasn’t sure, but didn’t think so. I also called three other friends and told them I was looking for work. I asked them that if they heard of anyone who was hiring, would they please let me know.” I spent the whole morning on the phone networking.” Sound familiar? Most people know what networking is-and don’t do it OR some think they are networking, but aren’t doing it correctly. Did you know that 75-80% of jobs are attained through networking? Believe it or not-it is true!
Join us when Martha Rockwell, career coach and member of the SJN Curriculum Development Committee, delivers a presentation that will take you through the steps of the networking process! It is not as difficult as you might think. The best part about networking is that it gives you more control of your job search. Learning to network correctly will change your attitude toward this very important area of the job search process. Martha will give you a way to put some “AIR” into your search- come and find out how!
Having graduated from Arizona State University, Martha’s background includes career advisement, education, and sales. Certified by the PARWCC (Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches) and licensed by the State of Arizona as a career coach, she is owner of A+ Resumes & Career Coaching.

What does it cost to participate?
We do not require membership dues or meeting fees to allow everyone who is in job transition to be able to participate. Since our program is unfunded, we suggest that participants make a voluntary donation of $5 per meeting. When we have an all-day workshop, we do need to pass the costs along to participants.
Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday mornings:
9-9:30 Networking, resume reviews, contact with recruiters
9:30 Welcome, announcements, introductions
10:00 Speaker begins
11:15 Speaker ends, feedback collected
Networking continues until 11:30
We meet at and use space provided by Temple Chai, 4645 East Marilyn Road, Phoenix, AZ 85032-4839. Temple Chai is located just east of the Piestawa Freeway (Route 51) and South & West of the loop 101 (PIMA FREEWAY SECTION). Marilyn Road is on the west side of Tatum Blvd. between Thunderbird and Greenway Roads
Scottsdale Job Network (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.
The value of SJN lies in the skills, business networks and personal passions of our members. Membership is open to everyone willing to share their skills and anyone interested in local networking or in need of employment transition support.
