- Mission: The Career Connection was established in 1992 to help professionals in career transition through the Principles of Networking. We believe that ‘the hidden marketplace’ can be accessed when people with similar industry experience network and exchange information about corporate opportunities.
We offer support and confidentiality in a structured, professional setting. Anyone in a career transition can greatly benefit from active participation in this program.
- The Career Connection is a not-for-profit networking group for job-seeking mid- and upper-level professionals.
- We have weekly speaker meetings every Tuesday morning:
- 9:00 a.m. Orientation class for NEW MEMBERS.
- 10:00 a.m. Main meeting
- Additional support groups hold meetings around the metroplex with emphasis on general and specific career tracks. (For instance the invitation only M.E.G. group, for high level positions for those with at least 10 years of experience as a Vice President or Director, meets at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.)
- Workshops, Job Board, and additional Resources available.
