Practical help. Invaluable hope.
WELCOME TO JOB NETWORKING
For over 30 years, Job Networking has been providing practical help and invaluable hope to members of our community who are experiencing employment challenges and transitions. We have been hosting face-to-face meetings since January, 2022 after a long 22 months of being in the ‘virtual’ world since the Pandemic hit. Please join us in person for help with interviewing skills, resume writing, LinkedIn, troubleshooting your job search, and fantastic networking opportunities. RUMC Job Networking exists to teach job seekers how to begin and sustain a job search while providing essential emotional support and encouragement! We are here to help!
Face-to-face Job Networking meets on Monday, December 12, 3:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

RUMC is partnering with Emory University and WIT (Women in IT). You can learn first-hand knowledge about this program by attending our next meeting immediately following dinner. Check out 11 Alive’s segment on this program: Women in Technology puts single moms through the technology cyber security certificate program at Emory, covering everything from tuition, food, rides, and childcare.
The impact of the Job Networking ministry has a reach far beyond our own walls. We invite you to hear the story of Patrice Counts. Patrice shares how the right tools and the right people at the right time made all the difference in her journey towards a job she loves.
