CAREER COACHING

by Appointment!

 Career Ministry Volunteer Team

 Dunwoody United Methodist Church

 Pre-registration REQUIRED!  Limited appointments available! 

 

The Career Ministry at Dunwoody UMC hosts "speakers" on the 2nd Tuesday and "career coaching by appointment" on the 4th Tuesday each month.  We encourage everyone to come to our speaker meetings each month and NO registration is required for the speaker meetings and all are welcome! 


Upcoming topics include:  

  • 14 October - Networking via Social Media (William Grubb)
  • 11 November - How Georgia's DOL Helps (Shannon Jackson, GA DOL)    

NOTE:  No Career-Coaching at Dunwoody UMC in November or December 2014!

For comprehensive career transition training, consider the Crossroads Crash Course. Conducted 8-9 times yearly, this 21-hour program is completed in 2 weeks.  The program includes an online career assessment, personalized resume review and interview training.  This course is rotated to the 9 host churches (Dunwoody UMC hosts the course once or twice yearly).

The Career Coaching By Appointment sessions are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month beginning at 7:00 PM (check the registration site because Nov/Dec meetings are subject to change due to the holidays).  For each coaching session, please report to the Wesley Room, located on the second floor of the Education Building.  (Enter at the main entrance on the East side of the Dunwoody UMC building, go up the stairs and go right,  The room will be the first door on the right on the 2nd floor immediately behind the elevators.)   

We will have a number of our experienced volunteer leaders available on those evenings to spend 1-on-1 time with you to discuss topics that are specific to your needs.  These will cover a variety of areas, including:

  • Building a more effective resume
  • Using online social media for jobseekers (LinkedIn, Facebook)
  • Personal finance issues when unemployed
  • Face-to-face interviewing help
  • Job search resources
  • Networking/finding contacts
  • Other topics where jobseekers need help

You will be matched to one of our experienced volunteer team members who is best-equipped to help you with your individual needs.  If you have questions or need help on a topic not covered, just ask and we will do our best to provide you with the help you need.

The Career Coaching program will last from 7-9 PM, and upon arrival you will be scheduled for a 1-on-1 session for a specific time slot (typically 30-45 minutes).  Depending upon the number of attendees and coaches, you may have 1, 2 or 3 coaching sessions during the evening.   During any time when you are not scheduled for a coaching session, you are invited to network with others who attend, and our volunteers may be able to help you on other topics when they are not scheduled with other participants.

Pre-registration is REQUIRED for this event in order to ensure that we have adequate volunteers on hand to assist you!  To pre-register, click on the   REGISTER   button  above and complete the survey. 

Because the number of coaching appointments is limited by the number of coaches we have available, please register as early as possible.  Our available coaching slots are filled almost every month.
