Are you a frustrated job-seeker who was recently laid off or riffed from career? Are you a recent college graduate? Or are you changing careers?

As a job-seeker, have you used the newspaper classifieds or Internet job-search engines thinking that all you need to do is to contact three or four firms which interest you and you're hired?

It is not that simple!

Do you sit home waiting for the US Mail, telephone calls or E-mail? Do you receive postcards and form letters from firms telling you that they have received your cover letter and resume and that you will be contacted in 3 to 6 weeks?

If so:

Contact The Employment Support Center serving DC/MD/VA Jobseekers!

Join The Employment Support Center Job-Strategy Networking Sessions!

Learn new techniques to thwart the negativity and gain the advantage. The Employment Support Center is geared to instruct and guide individuals through networking and one-on-one sessions to help them acquire the skills needed to quickly gain interviews, interview successfully and be offered the job!

Join a weekly career group for networking strategies. The purpose of each session is to develop job-search skills, exchange job leads and contacts, meet employers and make friends.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE THE BEST CANDIDATE TO GET THE JOB. BUT YOU DO NEED A PLAN! Career planning is based on market forces. Employers look for candidates who have achieved demonstrated success in multiple environments and have the ability to manage change. While you cannot guarantee the outcome of your career, you can precisely target appropriate areas and give a valid reason to be hired. The Employment Support Center will consult with members to develop a reality-based career plan to explain how you can use the Center's demonstrated techniques to get you the job you want.
