Jobseeker Support Groups

“Searching for a job takes persistence – and it’s not always easy to stay optimistic when prospects appear to be on the bleak side. That’s why it’s crucial not only to reach out to people like recruiters and staffing agents, who can provide you with insights on landing the job you want, but also to connect with other workers who share your struggle and can sympathize with your frustrations. While a support group isn’t likely to have direct access to job listings, its members can still give you those periodic energy boosts you need in order to keep searching – and also provide you with tips and strategies you might not have considered. So here’s how to get plugged into career support groups in your own local area.”
