If the phone doesn’t ring, it’s me

Editorial by Matt Bud from the December 18, 2018 Newsletter

In the riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma that is life, they are also always wondering why no one calls them. When I was in college, my grandmother once said to me that if I wrote to her she would write me back, but I had to write first.

January 3, 2019 – Abby Kohut – “Exposing the Hidden Job Market” - Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Ridgewood, NJ

Although the economy is improving - this still isn't your Grandma's job market! Many of the jobs are hidden from plain view and unless you learn about the new way to job hunt, you'll be left out in the cold. Absolutely Abby will teach you how easy it really is to uncover the hidden job market. You will learn:
• Why the job market is hidden in the first place
• 3 ways to hobnob with CTOs, CFOs and other C-suite members
• How working for free can be the best idea you ever had
• How to solve problems for companies who don't know that they have them
• 3 ways to use social media to generate opportunities you didn't know existed

Abby Kohut, known as Absolutely Abby is the Lead Consultant and President of Staffing Symphony, LLC, a staffing consulting and expansion company. For 15 years, Abby has held positions such as Senior Director of Recruiting for Kaplan, Inc., Interim Director of Recruiting for Continuum Health Partners, and Manager of Global Recruiting for Alpharma, Inc. Abby appeared on Career Corner on SOMA TV and was a guest speaker on "Jobs For Candidates over 50" on WTOD Radio Station in Toledo. Abby's blogs on AbsolutelyAbby.com and her bi-weekly Career Wake Up Calls inspire job seekers to stay motivated as they continue their search for their ideal job. Her recent book, "Absolutely Abby's 101 Job Search Secrets" teaches candidates secrets about the job search process that other recruiters won't tell you. Abby is an open networker on Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn and invites anyone looking to grow their networks to connect with her.

Agenda

BREAKFAST MEETING: MONMOUTH/OCEAN Chapter in Freehold, NJ

- For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely among yourselves.

- At 8:45, General announcements. If anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 10 people with a facilitator for each group. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be based on mutual interest: financial services, consulting, manufacturing, accounting, etc..

- Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his/her issues and how the group can help, job search problems/opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance.

- Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:30 break.

I will update the attendance list for everyone who shows up. It will be available on the website for about a month.

PLEASE BRING: a name-tag, business cards, and copies of your marketing material.

DRESS: informal (jeans are fine)

Please note this is just a few blocks down the street from CentraState Hospital.

COST: This is an informal meeting. We will ask everyone to buy their own coffee and snack and join us at the biggest table we can find.

We look forward to seeing you.
