Hosted by the Lake Grove Presbyterian Church in Lake Oswego, the Lake Grove Job Seekers program offers individual mentoring, plus group instruction and support, in all aspects of the job search process. Open to any in the Portland metro area, this program is available to all who are out of work and seeking employment, or to those seeking a new career direction.
With a diversity of mentoring skills and experiences, we will personally assist you in a confidential, non-denominational manner at no charge. We strive to offer our assistance in a listening, positive and supportive environment.
Core Components of the Program
You are always welcome to attend our Monday meetings and register for an account on this website.

Monday, October 26, 2020 @ 10:30am
This is an online Zoom meeting and will use the same Zoom logistics as for the earlier Job Seeker meeting at 8:30-10:30am today.
Orientation is only for Job Seekers who wish to be assigned a mentor. If that is the case, you must participate in a 2 week Job Seeker Orientation program. This week is Week 2; it starts immediately AFTER the regular Monday Job Seekers meeting and typically runs from 10:30am - 12pm. The sessions must be attended in order, so if you have not yet attended Week 1, please attend that session first (which will be next week, barring holiday closures.)
This meeting is not required if you are only interested in attending the weekly Job Seeker meetings; they are always open to anyone.

Co-led by Pam Clemons, retired HR professional, and Mike Greene, retired employment attorney, this talk will address some of the questions an employer can and can't ask at various stages of the interview process. You'll also get tips for how to handle those questions in an interview that are illegal or that 'cross the line.' There will be ample time to get your own questions answered as well.
This is an online Zoom meeting. You should create a free Zoom account first. To join the meeting, sign into your Zoom account first, then join this meeting:

The JobSeekers club is a great resource, a real gem and a wonderful gift for those who need it.
I appreciate having a place to go each Monday to start my week action forward. I have met wonderful and inspiring people who have been generous with their time and skills. Fabulous presenters and presentations!
The LGPC JobSeekers group has been very supportive and helpful in my career transition and I'm so thankful for your work. I look forward to an opportunity to pay it forward or pay back in the future.
Everyone that is a part of Job Seekers has been wonderful and insightful. It has been such a blessing during my job seeking process!
This is an exemplary group of supportive, committed mentors, who orchestrate a well-crafted curriculum. Keep up the good work. You truly make a difference!
Job Seekers is a great mentorship program! I've loved having access to my mentor and to the rest of the team for my job search.
I really love the warmth I feel from the mentors and the whole group. Great place to network.
