The Job Forum welcomes professionals who are serious and committed to finding the next great job or career. The majority of our participants have a college (or other advanced degrees) and/or previous job or career experience. However, we welcome job seekers of all ages, skill levels and status of careers.
- Those new to the SF Bay Area
- Those wanting to change careers or industry
- New college or new graduate school grads
- Those returning to the workplace after an absence, or due to child-raising, eldercare, illness or travel
- Those laid off through a company acquisition or consolidation or through no fault of their own
- Those who made some career mistakes
- Older professionals who want a fresh start on how to conduct a contemporary job search
- New citizens to the USA
- Those who are not sure which kind of career to look for next
Who Should Come to the Job Forum?
Are you a Bay Area Resident looking for a job? Are you new to the area and seeking employment in San Francisco or Silicon Valley? Have you just moved here to California from another state? Are you new to the USA? Are you changing careers, or seeking to improve your career? Do you have a specific set of questions or job goals you’d like to fine-tune? If you answered YES to any of these questions – and you are serious about your job search and will follow through – we encourage you to attend the Job Forum.
Who should NOT come to the Job Forum?
The Job Forum is not the appropriate service for individuals seeking counseling and guidance related to immigration and/or job-related medical issues. While we discuss a wide range of topics, we do not address those that are better handled by an attorney or a physician. We are not experts in immigration issues. We are not able and do not counsel those without working papers. We are more geared and able to help those possessing some college education and wanting full time career work. We are not able to advise about government or disability support.
The Job Forum is very supportive but is not intended to be an ongoing “ support group;” instead we encourage job seekers to come, get questions answered, and then implement the job search process suggestions we make and get going to take action and find that next job!
