Job Postings

Hidden jobs are welcomed for sharing at If the job your neighbor, friend or family shared with you is not right for you, it might be perfect for an August Group colleague.  This is a great place for practicing "give to get." With 1600 members, what can happen here when members own the content?

We welcome volunteers to coordinate the job postings on a weekly basis. Employers and members submit jobs that must be readied for inclusion in the newsletter.  A lack of help means fewer jobs get posted in a timely manner. Why not be the first one to see new postings.

Links to share

Got a link you want to share?  Send it to and put "Link to share" in the Subject Line.

This seems like a great resource – they offer free job aids (reference sheets) for Word, Outlook, PPT, Access, Excel, Project, Visio, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and more…….. you can also sign on for free training and paid training….

They state that it’s spam free…..

I’m not affiliated with them at all, so I’m not recommending them beyond saying that their content looks good. I just downloaded a few….so I’m new to them as well.

Kind Regards,

NETWORKING: The New Professional Competency

People from “the old school” think networking is for job seekers who need help. “The new school” philosophy focuses on networking as a professional competency. One must master “networking skills” to get his job done well, to advance his career and to get ahead.

It’s a paradigm shift. To get what you want, you must first GIVE to someone else. This is also known as the ‘boomerang effect’ or ‘reciprocity principle.’ READ MORE AT
