SJN – Scottsdale Job Network
6/4 Get Wired to Get Hired, Glendale

Scottsdale Job Network (SJN) is hosting its first ever event in the West Valley at Glendale Community College. This is an exciting opportunity for us to continue our partnership with Maricopa County Community Colleges and we appreciate their support.

Mediation Program Helps Resolve Neighborhood Conflicts by quotes

MEDIATION PROGRAM HELPS RESOLVE NEIGHBORHOOD CONFLICTS

The city has restarted its Mediation Program to help residents solve
neighborhood issues — everything from barking dogs to overhanging tree branches.

Mediation provides a way for community members to resolve conflicts
themselves, in a peaceful and civil manner. Assisted by a skilled mediator, people are able to talk to each other in order to seek a mutually satisfactory solution. The mediator will not make decisions, but will guide the disputing neighbors toward a resolution. The process is free, private and voluntary.

If you have an issue with your neighbor that you would like to resolve, call (480) 312-2342 or access a mediation request form at
http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/departments/CNR/Mediation_Program.asp.

SJN – Scottsdale Job Network by quotes

SJN – Scottsdale Job Network

WELCOME Job Seekers, Employers and Volunteers

SJN – Scottsdale Job Network – is a group of job seekers and others volunteering their time to help them in their career transitions. The group attracts speakers from industry, technology, government, finance, coaching and recruiting to discuss job search fundamentals including developing a marketing plan, writing a resume, networking and interviewing.

Scottsdale Job Network NEXT MEETING: TUES, OCT 2Guest speaker:

Peter Polk, Retired Healthcare Executive
Governor’s Task Force on Aging-Mature Worker InitiativePresenting:  Conversational Rituals

How can we overcome frustrations and avoid misunderstandings that result from gender differences in conversational style?  When conversational rituals are not understood, we tend to interpret them literally = misinterpreting the speaker’s intentions and abilities.  In every office, no matter what part of the world, and no matter what kind of business, there’s one activity without which no work could ever get done …… Talking.  In any job search, effective talking at an interview can result from knowing conversational style to apply whether the interviewer is a man or woman.

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.
