NSENG was started by Marty Gilbert when he was in an active job search in 2010. Today, over 8,000 single contributors, managers, directors, VPs and C-level executives are members of NSENG and Marty has helped 2,000 of them to obtain their next career opportunities. By joining this organization each member has access to all of these individuals as part of their job search, along with gaining job search knowledge through NSENG’s workshops, webinars and one-on-one coaching. 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:
- Maximizing the value of LinkedIn during your job search
- Mastering the psychology of the job interview
- Developing a dynamic elevator pitch
- Developing a target company list
- Using improvisation in an interview
- Building your personal brand
- The executive recruiter’s perspective
- How to make your brain perform better during a job search
- Speaking with greater confidence during interviews
