OU’s ParnossahWorks Presents a Free Employment Workshop on Effective Job Search, November 8
To provide job-seekers with successful strategies for getting the job they want, ParnossahWorks, a joint initiative of the Orthodox Union and FEGS Health and Human Services, will offer a free employment workshop, “Effective Job Search Strategy and Networking: The Keys to the Hidden Job Market,” on Wednesday, November 8.
It will be held at Orthodox Union headquarters, 11 Broadway in Manhattan, from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
Since ParnossahWorks was launched, it has placed 469 (as of September 20, 2006) applicants from the New York area in gainful employment. Requests for services primarily come from the New York Metro area. Additionally, news of the ParnossahWorks program has spread to generate requests from across the United States, Canada and Israel.
"The overall success of ParnossahWorks is the result of the dedicated partnership between FEGS and the OU," declared Meryl Kordower, Associate Vice President, FEGS.
ParnossahWorks was created for the Orthodox and wider Jewish communities, with OU synagogues in the New York Metro area serving as a network for the project. It is a unique placement service that combines state-of-the-art computer technology with career counseling and assistance by trained FEGS staff.
The November 8 workshop will teach job seekers the most effective ways to search for the best positions for them. They will hear an analysis of current techniques and learn additional methods to tap the hidden job market.
Those who attend the workshop will practice networking using a fun activity in a confidence-building environment and will have the opportunity to meet personally with the ParnossahWorks staff at the conclusion of the workshops to discuss their particular situations. ParnossahWorks officials promise that participants will leave with at least three contacts to assist them in their job search.
