19 Jun 2006

Strategies for Success Series:
180 PassaicAvenue
Wednesday, July19

As part of its ongoing ParnossahWorks job placement initiative, the Orthodox Union, in conjunction with FEGS Health and Human Services and Tifereth Israel Congregation of Passaic, will present a free career employment workshop on Wednesday, July 19 from 10:00 a.m -12:00 noon.

It will be held at Tifereth Israel Congregation, 180 Passaic Ave.

Since the program was launched in September 2004, it has placed 321 (as of April 10, 2006) clients in the New York area in gainful employment.

ParnossahWorks is a joint project of the OU and FEGS, created for the Orthodox and Jewish communities at large, with OU synagogues in the Tri-State area serving as a network for the project. It is a unique placement service that combines state of the art technology with career counseling and assistance by trained FEGS staff.

The workshop, Effective Job Search Strategy and Networking: the Keys to the Hidden Job Market, will teach job hunters the most effective ways to search for the best jobs for them. They will hear an analysis of current techniques and learn additional methods to tap the hidden job market.

“You will leave with at least three new contacts to help you in your job search,” OU and FEGS promise. Participants 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 employment needs.
