Whether you’re seeking employment actively or looking to expand your professional connections, the key lies in the people you know. Scott has partnered with various organizations across the county to provide valuable resources, enabling you to meet new individuals, ask direct questions about your job search, and perhaps even receive assistance in securing a job. Embark on building your advanced network by exploring virtual hangouts.
About Virtual Hangouts
Access is important, and we think that everyone should have a fair shake at making connections. Sharing information, helping others, and talking through challenges; we’re here to help! When it comes to jobs, Scott has collaborated with volunteers across the county to help. Ask about:
- Anything— from job hunt fatigue to emerging job trends.
- Support for veterans, such as transferring skills.
- Resume review, with best practices and industry tips.
- Networking, getting into a new industry, or growing your career.
We use video conferencing and a little internet magic to bring you face-to-face with some of Scott’s greatest neighbors. You can book time with them with any smart device or computer. If you have any questions or want to volunteer, please drop us a line.
