Networking

Networking with other professionals has proven to be one of the best ways of getting the job you want. Many people are not comfortable with networking but EU offers many different methodologies to help with this vital skill and this is accomplished all while maintaining our core values. 

Departments

Share your expertise or learn new skills in Marketing, Information Technology, Training, or Business Operations. Take an opportunity for a key role by serving as a Committee Chairperson or on our operating board as President, Vice President, or Secretary/Treasurer.

Workshops

Membership is required for all of our workshops except Job Search 1.0, with most workshops being three and a half hours in length and are offered bi-monthly or monthly. These are held at the EDD East Bay Works office in Concord off Port Chicago Highway. 

Other workshops include:

  • Resume Writing and Document Preparation
  • Resume Review
  • Networking
  • Interview Techniques
  • Videotaped Interview Practice
  • Salary Negotiation
  • LinkedIn and Social Media
  • Negotiating Total Compensation  
  • PAR (Problem - Action - Results) Statements 

Events / Speakers

Weekly motivational speakers present at our Tuesday General Meeting (held at our Walnut Creek site). A new member orientation is always given during our General Meeting, and some Success Teams groups also meet after the General Meeting.

Gold Card Exit

Gold Card is a term EU uses when a member has attained that new job or contract. This is always an exciting momemt for the member and the group at large when they hear of a fellow member becoming employed. A very positive moment for all. Members frequently post testimonials on our website, are invited to participate in selected networking events, and quite often return to the group as a presenter.

That reminds me of . . .

Did you know? Linkage statements, used correctly, can connect almost all interview questions to your PARs.

  • Colleagues would probably tell you...
  • Peers would probably tell you...
  • My boss would probably tell you...
  • Subordinates would tell you...
  • That reminds me of ...
  • That's difficult to say, but ... ...
  • For example, ...

It takes practice, and you need to have a grab bag of PARs in your hip pocket, including 2-3 that speak to "learning opportunities." The ability to leverage this technique can be a powerful way to make you shine.
