I'm posting the possibility of a new networking/brainstorming group to numerous boards/groups; the more diverse the experiences represented, the more likely the ideas exchanged will be beneficial to multiple people. I see this as a way to share info about employment, health issues, automotive interests, etc. You do NOT have to live in Chicagoland to be a member & participate!


Possible initial meeting dates...

...Sunday, 04/22/2012 (afternoon)

...Tuesday, 04/24/2012 (evening)

...Saturday, 04/28/2012 (morning)


Possible initial meeting locations...

...Elgin IL's Colonial Cafe ("meeting room" area)

...Elgin IL's Gail Borden Library (meeting room)


Who is IN?!



I've been networking & sending resumes as much as possible, but nothing so far. My background is mostly customer service, including a Help Desk job working with Advance Ship Notices through EDI. The last job wasn't exactly what the title indicated. I've been researching non-profits, but those are struggling.... I'd love to get into marketing in some capacity, radio, writing, event creation/hosting (done a number of gatherings in the Chicago area, though I'm told that doesn't count as "professional" experience), etc.

I'm not panicking...yet. I've kept busy by going through stuff in my room, lots of Nephew Time, attending workshops/presentations, finishing my 36 sessions of Cardiac Rehab (definite PLUS), etc.

Sorry I can't be there. All I can do is let you know what's available around our SE Missouri/Southern Illinois area.:smile2:

Cort, sorry I can't attend in person cause I would love to meet you. Anyway I'm sure you know but jobs are scarce in California. But I was thinking, maybe you could go on line and take a look at opportunities with Medtronic. They have many divisions and are in many states. Hope your networking proves fruitful.

Herb - I can be sure Cort gets the link to the US Government site. We have two "Feds" in the immediate family here, and another downstate.

LOL! I know you'd love to have me down there, but I'll still be a Cubs fan ... ESPECIALLY after today's superb victory in a certain beer stadium on a certain red bird team's home opener........

Thanks for that tip. Hadn't even thought of that, actually. ;)

*raises eyebrow*

Do tell more.... I HAD a link to the USA jobs ... but, when I tried to go the site I had bookmarked, it said "not found". So, has the link changed?

Not sure if it has changed, but either my wife or my daughter will know what it is now.
