Job Networking Resources

Our approach is to widen the networking circle for the job seekers by networking via email.

We have an ever-growing (over 600 people!) email database of people willing to help you broaden your network. Email Bill Corrigan and ask to be added to the distribution list. You will receive job postings from employers, information about other job groups and job search tips. Members of the e-mail database are encouraged to connect job seekers with leads and advice that may help their search.  Employers can send their job postings to this same email list. Ask for contact names of your target companies, have your resume reviewed, and ask for leads.

Entegee has a meet and greet every Tuesday.  Click here to download a flyer.
