Organization Name: Colonial Job Seekers Support Network

Church Affiliation: Colonial Baptist Church

Organization’s Leadership (email): Sharon Cox (careerresumesc@aol.com)

Organization URL: http://24.199.145.66/jobseekers/

Organization Yahoo Group: None

Comments: devotions networking, training

This group is one of the most organized networking ministries.  The group has met for over a year.  They ran an “inverse job fair” in April of 2002.  Recent meetings have had over 60 attendees, with a role exceeding 200.  The format of the meetings changed as of August 5th.  As of that date, meetings open with a devotional and then proceed to a prayer of praise and concerns expressed by members of the group, after which they break out into Special Interest Groups (SIGs).  The policy of bringing speakers for each meeting is being abandoned, at least for now.  The speaker program will be considered again after a full time volunteer Executive Director is found.  The group used to send out many emails about job opportunities for a very wide variety of positions to all on the master mailing list, effective August 5th jobs that relate to that SIG group’s members will be forward by the SIG leaders in lieu of mass mailings.  Over 80 former members have landed.  The changes in the group are prompted by the growth of the group and because members of the leadership team are landing.  The group also maintains a “Yellow pages” where members list odd jobs that they will do for a fee.

This is a small, but growing group.  It is made up almost exclusively of members of the St. Andrew parish.  The focus of the group is as probably more support than networking.  The group is trying to be more active, letting more parishioners know of the group, to both join and provide possible job openings.  They are looking into putting a bio list of members on the church’s web site.

This group is one of the most organized networking ministries, with most of the leadership provided by people who own their own businesses.  Recent meetings have had over 40 attendees.  The focus is both networking and support.  The meetings open with a short devotional and then a spotlighting of two attendees where leads are given to the spotlighted people.  They have brought in hiring managers and others as speakers, after the speaker each table is encouraged to get to know each other and share leads.  They will go around to all present encouraging people to tell one positive thing that happened to them during the past week.
