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 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.

Dealing with Rejection: Overcoming Roadblocks for the Best Options and Fastest Landing

Monday, August 26, 2019 @ 8:30am

You mastered the application process, breezed through the initial screening, advanced to the second interview and right before the reference check and final offer you receive word that the company went with another candidate. Handling rejection can be one of the most important job search skills you can learn! No matter how smart or qualified you are, this process can cause you to doubt yourself, and whether you'll find a comparable job to the one you left. Will you have to take the first offer that comes along, even if it's not the right one?

Finding the right job that aligns with your new future goals and vision is what this is all about. And it starts with learning to manage the fear of rejection that comes with the job search. In this workshop, you will gain insights and learn strategies to reframe your mindset around the fear of rejection along with tips to overcome the big unknowns from holding you back in reaching your career goals.
