Tempe light rail volunteers to celebrate trains and tracks

Tempe, Arizona – Be part of a historic event by volunteering for light rail grand opening festivities in Tempe!

On Saturday, Dec. 27, the first 20 miles of light rail in the Valley will be open and ready for riders to board. Residents will be celebrating this historic event at different stops as they ride the train for free through Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa.

Tempe’s biggest celebration will take place around the City’s new Transportation Center at Fifth Street and College Avenue, and will include food, entertainment and fireworks.

Volunteers will be needed to serve in the children’s activity and information booths and assist with set-up and take down. Shifts are available between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Volunteers will receive a long-sleeve T-shirt to wear at the event and keep as their souvenir of this special day.

For more information and to volunteer, call the City of Tempe volunteer office at 480-350-5190.

Scottsdale Job Network Curriculum Meeting – Creating Leads and Networking October 19, 2008

Scottsdale Job Network Meeting

Scottsdale Jobs Network

Join us on Tuesday October 21, 2008 – 9:00 am – 11:30 am for “Creating Leads, Networking”

Join us for NETWORKING at 9 AM and then for the fourth in a series of six programs developed for the SJN Curriculum on the Job Search Process, “Creating Leads, Networking.”

“I called a friend of mine, John, and asked him if there was an opening at his company. He said he wasn’t sure, but didn’t think so. I also called three other friends and told them I was looking for work. I asked them that if they heard of anyone who was hiring, would they please let me know. I spent the whole morning on the phone networking.” Sound familiar? Most people know what networking is-and don’t do it OR some think they are networking, but aren’t doing it correctly. Did you know that 75-80% of jobs are attained through networking? Believe it or not-it is true!

Join us when George Fleming will take you through the steps of the networking process! It is not as difficult as you might think. The best part about networking is that it gives you more control of your job search. Learning to network correctly will change your attitude toward this very important area of the job search process. — come and find out how!

Thank you,
Bill Austin

Scottsdale Job Network (SJN) is a non-profit community group of business leaders and volunteers. We are not a job placement forum, and we do not match candidates to openings nor do we send resumes to employers or recruiters. There is no guarantee of employment either directly through this group or as a result of association with SJN. We do, however, provide education in the job search process and all attendees have the opportunity to meet and work with people who offer support and guidance during employment transition.

The value of SJN lies in the skills, business networks and personal passions of our members. Membership is open to everyone willing to share their skills and anyone interested in local networking or in need of employment transition support.
