Jewish Family Service of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties is offering a Job Seekers Success Group for active job seekers who are unemployed, underemployed or seeking a career change. The next group will be held on Wednesday, February 3, 2021 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. This meeting will be held by virtual format via Zoom.
The topic for this session is “Background Checks and References – What are employers learning about you?!” presented by Paul Cecala, Chief Career Navigator, Cecala Career Consultants. Paul will take an in-depth look at the many different ways employers are delving into candidate’s pasts to determine their suitability for the job, including some changes based on COVID and legalized marijuana. The interview is just one step. The background and reference check is a completely separate and extensive step made much easier by the internet. What are employers learning about you? What can you do to ensure they learn what you want? These are just two of the important questions answered in this presentation. Leave with many steps you can take today to improve your background and reference check.
This group is offered free of charge and are open to the entire community. Funding for this program is provided by grants from The Arnold A. Schwartz Foundation, Affinity Federal Credit Union and Magyar Bank. Registration is required to receive the Zoom invitation and to be admitted to the group.
