Are you currently in the job-seeking process and looking to find a supportive community? If so, we invite you to join us for the Job Seeking Support Series! This will be a four-part workshop series focused on building up job-seeking skills while cultivating a collaborative community for connection.

Please note that the Eventbrite registration system will only allow you to sign up for the first session, however, you will be registered internally to attend all four sessions listed. Subsequent session invitations will be sent out directly by workshop facilitators.

Over the course of four weeks, we will review the basic elements of the job-seeking process, practice key skills, and reflect on the journey in a supportive space. This workshop series is highly interactive, will incorporate reflective exercises between meetings, and will limit participation to registered attendees who complete the first session.

We ask for a commitment to all four sessions, the capacity to use the microphone to participate in activities and encourage the use of video during sessions. There will be no recordings.

Registration for this series will close on August 30th.
