Lake Grove Job Seekers

Job Seekers is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help people find jobs or work through a career transition.

Do you need job search or career planning assistance?

We mentor individuals seeking a new career path or a new job. For those out of work and seeking employment — and those employed but seeking a new career direction — the Lake Grove Job Seekers program offers individual mentoring in all aspects of the job search process. We also offer group instruction and support through weekly meetings, with opportunities for job seekers to connect with each other.

With a diversity of mentoring skills and experiences, we will personally assist you in a non-denominational manner at no-charge, with confidentiality and understanding in a listening, positive and supportive environment.

In addition to mentoring individuals as needed throughout the week, we host meetings every Monday morning with professional speakers who address all aspects of the job search and career transition journey and all are welcome, any time.
