Hurst NETworkers Career Transition Group. You asked for some information about the group and I am providing a whole lot below. If you need more, just ask.
The NETworkers Career Transition Group started in November, 2009, to provide support, tools, advice, and motivation to those in career transition. It is open to all from the surrounding communities as well as members of the congregation. We currently have about 40 members on the roster and average between 12 and 25 per meeting.

The Parlor is room I103 on the “1st floor” selection on the Map/Direction webpage and if you are looking at the church’s picture on the Home page, the Parlor is the room in the lower left-hand corner of the picture. in the Parlor of the Hurst First United Methodist Church. The church is located at and its phone number is . A map for church can be found on the church’s website,
The group normally meets for about a one and half to two hours. We usually have a program on one part of the job search such as interview preparation, resume preparation, social media, etc. Our next program is, Karen Granade, on the “10 Second Commercial”. We usually start the program portion of the meeting about 9:15 but we are flexible.
One of our leaders, Bob Horton, is starting an optional workshop after our regular meeting based on the book What Color Is Your Parachute 2010? It will be a 13 week session.
Some of our previous programs have been Helen Dickey on networking, David McLaughlin on applying for government jobs, James Snider on social media in networking, Michele Packard-Milan on working for non-profits, former baseball pitcher, Claude Osteen, on “Change Your Attitude and Get Back in the Game”, Cathy McCreedy Howard on “Call Preparations for Selling You”, Jackie Harper from the Container Store, and Diana Meisenhelter on what recruiters do.
