For over 25 years RUMC Job Networking has been providing employment workshops, ‘mini’ job fairs, and evening dinners with keynote speakers to those in need of employment or job readiness. RUMC Job Networking exists to teach job seekers how to begin and sustain a job search while providing emotional support and encouragement. We provide this support through mentoring, community prayer partners (all faiths and denominations), and support groups. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month.

Since 2010, we have been training on job readiness while making states and other countries aware of the need for Job Networking including: Holland, Singapore, Portugal and London. The impact of this program has reached the attention of ABC World News, Fox 5 News, the Wall Street Journal, and the Atlanta Journal. Our interview on National Public Radio discussed how a community works together to help the unemployed. We have developed close relationships with the state and federal departments of labor and have attended events hosted by the White House and the Community Partnerships for Faith Based Programs. They have reinforced that we are filling a gap they cannot serve.

This is your invitation to join us! Please take a look at our agenda and see what we have to offer. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
