Editorial by Matt Bud from the December 10, 2018 Newsletter

When you meet someone for the first time, the natural inclination and the appropriate one is to make small talk. In an interviewing situation for example it is normal to either talk about the weather or the traffic getting to your appointment. They are easy topics and unlike politics where you never know where someone stands, they are safe topics. How we introduce ourselves to others also has a logical pattern. In the case of job search, we have that very useful tool we call the elevator speech or the 90-second announcement. It is a way of getting ourselves into a conversation with another human being.

Location

Temple Israel in Westport, CT. We meet in the Temple’s Board Room, on the first floor. The entrance is through the Temple’s administrative offices on the left hand side of the main entrance. Alumni members are always welcome!

Agenda

Please try to be on time. I never punish those who show up on time by starting late. And, you honestly do miss something when you arrive late.

The beginning of the meeting will be devoted to members delivering their 90-second announcements so we can learn more about each other.

Our very special speaker for this meeting is Paul Stuhlman, Co-Chair of our Westport Chapter. His topic will be: “Job Search is a Team Sport™”

Were you aware that Job Search Teams are beginning to form in our New York City and Westport chapters? In time, they will likely become a regular staple of membership throughout The FENG. Yes, it’s all about members helping members!

Job Search Teams are a largely underutilized approach for maximizing your search effectiveness. They provide an opportunity for structure and accountability, a forum for feedback and practice, and perhaps best of all – camaraderie.

Join us at our December 12th meeting when Paul Stuhlman, Co-Chair of the Westport chapter will lead us in a discussion about this cost free way to improve your search effectiveness.

Yes, job search is indeed a team sport. Get off the sidelines!

If you have specific questions about Job Search Teams you want to ensure Paul addresses, you may reach him as follows:

With regard to future meetings, please mark your calendars for the second Wednesday of the month and try to keep this date available. Interviews, work, and family emergencies are good exceptions.

In order to get the maximum benefit from our meeting:

1. Bring a name badge and/or "tent" to the meeting.*
2. Bring copies of your résumé and/or business cards.
3. Polish your 90 second announcement.

*(A tent is a 8" x 12" piece of cardboard folded in half with your name on BOTH sides.)

You should plan that the formal session will end no later than 6:30 PM so that the remaining 1/2 hour can be spent on a "scramble". Everyone should stay alert during the 90 second announcements so that when we break for individual networking you are able to connect in depth with as many people as possible. I want to strongly emphasize the importance to your job search of making a personal connection to other members.

If you bring a BIG name badge & big tent, this will also help. There is nothing more embarrassing than to get engrossed in a conversation with someone and have to ask them to repeat their name! Make it easy for others to remember you.
