About

NorthShore Executive Networking GroupNSENG was started by Marty Gilbert when he was in an active job search in 2010. Today, over 4,300 managers, directors, VPs and C-level executives are members of NSENG. By joining this organization each member has access to all of these individuals as part of their job search. Membership growth has largely been from referrals by individuals who have attended a meeting and found the speakers and the talent in the room to be a helpful part of their job search. The information presented in the meetings along with the interactions between members are a key part of NSENG’s value. This is augmented by the sharing of job leads,  search strategy discussions and NSENG’s job search coaching services, all of which help individuals be more productive with their time.

A few examples of presentation topics that have been addressed in previous meetings include:

  • Next level LinkedIn job search tactics
  • Developing a dynamic elevator pitch
  • Developing a target company list
  • Mastering the psychology of the job interview
  • Using improvisation in an interview

  • Building your personal brand
  • The executive recruiter’s perspective
  • 50 steps for 50-year old job seekers
  • Making yourself memorable through storytelling
  • Networking is a curable condition
