What Is Job Club?
The purpose of the Job Club is to provide a positive environment for motivated job seekers to meet, connect, share and learn. Each Job Club meeting will consist of a brief career-related program and provide time for sharing and networking among attendees. Some program topics include: job search strategies, a personal 30-second commercial, resumes, networking, interviewing, finances, unemployment benefits, social media and goal setting. Each session will be presented by a UK Alumni Association career counselor, UK HR career development manager, Cooperative Extension agents or other content experts.
** Recruiters and employers are always welcome to attend to network with attendees and share hiring needs.
When and Where Will Job Club Be Held?
The free group is open to the public and will meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 9:00–10:15 a.m. at the Fayette County Cooperative Extension office, 1140 Red Mile Place, Lexington, KY. Convenient, free parking is available.
