Summer Networking at Joseph’s People

Summer Networking at Joseph’s People

By Kate Rainey

Josephs People Central Delaware County (JPCD) will host a free session, July 17, on Networking Through the Summer.The workshop will be held from 7-8:30 p.m., in the Parish Hall of St. Laurence Church. The church is located at 8245 West Chester Pike, Upper Darby, and the entrance to Parish Hall is from the rear church driveway off of St. Laurence Road. All are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation.

Joseph Masek, former President of Masek HR Consulting, will teach how to keep up with your job search, with minimal time investment, while still enjoying summer. He will demonstrate how job seekers can become fully prepared to capitalize on the second busiest hiring month: September. Masek worked over 20 years at Lockheed Martin Corporation in Human Resources. He earned his M.S in Human Resources Management from Widener University. Currently, he volunteers at Nemours A.I. DuPont Hospital within the HR Operations department.

As a job seeker during the summer months, it is easy to slow down your search and lose momentum gained during the spring hiring season. It is often difficult to schedule interviews with your vacation plans, and those of the hiring manager. There are often distractions and seasonal chores to take care of around the house. Falling into a slower pace, however, may mean competition will beat you by getting your dream job.  

If you need to land employment before September, hiring does happen during summer. Mr. Masek will give you clues how you can find job leads where few others are looking.
