Networking & Placement


Networking is a skill that improves with practice, do it every day, make it a skill that you own. Career networking requires effective communication.

For many of us networking requires learning some important skills. Whether you’re trying to improve communication with hiring managers, networking contacts, your spouse or kids, learning better communication skills can deepen your connections to others, build greater trust and respect, and improve teamwork, problem solving, and your overall social and emotional health.

See the communication article at the HELPGUIDE.ORG link below for guidance on four communication skills.

Accountability Group for Members in Transition

Accountability Groups provide a valuable resource – Connections and Relationships. In your career search how do you know what is going on in your areas of interest that isn’t available on job boards and in your network?

Fox Valley ASQ Section 1208 is open to sponsoring Accountability Group at CDH/NM Hospital in Winfield.  Membership is open to unemployed & under-employed job seekers that want to stay motivated and on track in their job search. The benefit of a career search group is that job seekers network, encourage and support each other to keep motivated and on task in what might otherwise become a very un-structured time. Online resources are only part of the career search. It's easy to get lured into an unproductive vortex. Job boards can be valuable, but if you really want to stand out, you'll want to nurture relationships in-person, reach out and talk with people face-to-face.
