Meetings

Catherine-JohnsOur events consistent of meetings, webinars and workshops. The meetings are held from 6:15-8:30pm at the Glenview Public Library (1930 Glenview Rd). There are typically 60-120 attendees at each meeting. The meeting agenda is:

  • 6:15-6:30   Open networking
  • 6:30-6:45   Meeting announcements
  • 6:45-7:35   Keynote presentation topic
  • 7:35-8:30   Small group networking

During the small group networking each member gets an opportunity to share their background, what they’re looking for and target companies of interest to them. This often leads to warm introductions into companies that they can’t get traction with on their own. Please bring 15 copies of your handbill or resume to these sessions. 

The webinars are online sessions that feature keynote presenters who are addressing job search topics that can help individuals to be much more effective in a breadth of tactics and strategies to accelerate their efforts. The workshops are small group in-person sessions that include a presentation along with hands-on exercises and group discussions. These are typically 3 hours in length.

There are no upfront membership fees to join NSENG– just pay $20 at the door for each meeting that you attend.
