Free Jewish Career Network Launches in Boulder

Jewish Community Career Network (JCCN) is a new service in Boulder County for job seekers, job changers and people exploring new career directions. The first meeting is Tuesday, February 28, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia Avenue.  Barbara Behrendt, professional career consultant, will speak on “Taking Charge of Your Job Search” — developing an action plan, evaluating your resume and creating a punchy “elevator” pitch.

JCCN is a networking group run by volunteer career development professionals. It is a free service that is open to all.  Meetings will take place twice a month — on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings; March meetings are March 13 and 27.  JCCN will offer a combination of speakers, workshops and practice/feedback sessions. Topics will include job-seeking skills, resumes and cover letters, sharing job leads and social media.

The idea for JCCN was born when two job-hunting members of the Boulder Jewish community approached Bonai Shalom’s Social Action Committee, wondering why career circles were available in the Christian community but not in ours. An experienced group of career development professionals started meeting and were awarded a grant from the Boulder Jewish Community Foundation for start-up funds. The Boulder Jewish Community Center is partnering with JCCN, providing a meeting space and a link on its website.
