The Business Executives Networking Group (BENG) is dedicated to providing mid- senior level transitioning professionals with a forum to facilitate and enhance their job search. BENG meetings allow participants to hone their networking skills, share their background, meet their peers from various disciplines, share business opportunities and job leads and develop additional networking opportunities. BENG is all about members helping members and "paying it forward."
Our next BENG meeting is April 19th in Charlotte. If you have pre-registered, thank you. If you haven’t yet, please see the link below.
Our meetings last about 2 hours and usually start with a 30 – 40 minute interactive discussion concerning a relevant topic for job seekers.
An integral part of each meeting is handing out and sharing your “one page” hand bill. This is a personal marketing document that quickly lets the other attendees know a bit about your background and skill set and the companies you are targeting for employment and the companies in which you have helpful contacts. After our discussion, you will have the opportunity to give a brief, two minute introduction of yourself that should mirror the information contained in your handout. I have attached a couple of handout examples that should provide some guidance in constructing yours. Be sure to bring 20-25 copies to pass on to other attendees.
If you have further questions about the meeting format or what to bring, email or call one of us and we will be happy to help.
We look forward to your participation. Remember, BENG is first and foremost about members and meeting participants helping each other.
There is no cost to attend our meetings, however, we hope you will become a BENG member after attending your meeting. The cost is only $35.00 annually. You can join by accessing the BENG website at www.thebeng.org.
