First Time or Newer to RUMC Job Networking? Don’t miss the “Orientation Fast Start Session”. Our Job Networking events offer a great deal of information that we know can overwhelm newcomers. We can help you understand what we have to offer and decide which events you’d like to try in our Orientation Fast Start Session at 5:00 p.m., Room B 233 – 237 – Dining Room.

Attire to Hire – Interview Ready Clothing 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. – If you have an interview and need one piece for an outfit or an entire outfit, be certain to stop by the “clothing store” located on the lower level of Building B. There is no cost involved. Come and see what we can do to help you look your best.

Dinner Program –  Our dinner speaker is Judi Adams.  Seating begins at 5:15 p.m. with serving to start at 5:30 p.m. Our dinner program is focused on developing your spiritual resume so you are not conducting your search alone! A donation of $3.00 for the dinner is appreciated; however, for those who are unable to contribute, the meal is on us. Our buffet may close around 6:15 p.m.

Our Most Recent Meeting – Job Networking had 410 job seekers, employers, educators, and volunteers participate in workshops. We had 134 first time visitors to the program. Attire to Hire outfitted 27 job seekers. The evening ended with our first ‘mini’ job fair of 2018 which was an overwhelming success with 31 employers and educators in attendance.
