These help sustain careers & find talent!
After ten years meeting on Thursdays, the longest continuously running job club in West Michigan, EaRN Work Search Roundtable, has moved to Tuesdays, beginning September 6, 2011, the day after Labor Day. Roundtable meets from 8:30 to 10:30 am at the Spring Arbor University Grand Rapids Center in the Executive East Office Building, 1550 East Beltline SE, Suite 230.
Spring Arbor University in Grand Rapids has hosted this weekly coaching and support group throughout the past decade, and will continue to do so as Work Search Roundtable formally becomes another aspect of the ministry of EaRN Employment and Resource Network. Work Search Roundtable was started by EaRN co-founder Ken Soper in the late 90's and has been continuously meeting supporting the work search activity and networking of 1000's of West Michiganders. In September 2001, right after the 9/11 tragedies, Roundtable went online to expand the reach and connection of those seeking new work and gaining even when reemployed to remain employable; the Roundtable online presence continues here at the EaRN website and with a group on LinkedIn. With the birth and recent growth of EaRN ministries at local churches, Work Search Roundtable has become EaRN Work Search Roundtable to indicate its enfolding into the EaRN ministry.
EaRN Work Search Roundtable at Spring Arbor's Grand Rapids Center is open to the public. There is a nominal cost for each week’s session at the SAU-GR location. However, for attendees who are coming by referral from EaRN Employment & Resource Network Affiliate organizations, there is only a donation suggested. All contributions are tax deductible, however, and help the Roundtable support and encourage current and future job-seekers.
Individuals may register for the Spring Arbor University-hosted weekly event (except those weeks of the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day) by going to www.grnow.com, clicking on the calendar date, then the event, and using the “Register Now” function at the bottom of the screen.
