Catholic Career Roundtable Job Club (CCR)

Posted by: | November 4, 2017

People finding people jobs.  CCR holds weekly workshops for all those in transition.  At these informal meetings we discuss the nuts and bolts of career transition, identify target companies and celebrate wins! There are no fees for job seekers or employers who attend.  Relationships have replaced resumes, view our Resource tab above!

Something to ponder, more companies do more hiring in December than any other month of the year, where as 80% job seekers slow down.  CCR Job Seekers don’t slow down, your percentage for success just rose 80%.

CCR  Job Club facilitates a monthly Alumni Day that includes people who have been through the job search process and have been active participates in previous CCR workshops and are now gainfully employed.   Today we were happy to have NINE former job seekers come back as CCR Alumni and share each of their personal stories.

Current job seekers were overwhelmed at the opportunity to meet people who understood the process and who had found gainful employment.  That means NINE companies were represented today.  If you were at the meeting, you now have NINE new contacts on the inside.  Well done!


Reminder, no CCR Job Club meeting 09/30/17 so we’ll see you back 10/07/17 for our next workshop.

Today the CCR held its official first Alumni Day.  We had the pleasure of having three CCR Alumni attend and share what it’s like ‘after job club.’   Networking seemed to be the theme from our guests.  Also all shared how much prayer meant during their individual journey from one career to the next.   Another point made was that is your job now is to find a job and get serious about it.  Our Alumni all agreed that if you aren’t committed, then stay home, but if you are then you are in the right place!

From a Facilitator’s point of view it was so refreshing to hear that CCR made the difference and that paying it forward was part of the process.  “That is why we’re here,” CCR Alumni.

People helping people find jobs!
