Welcome to Businesspersons Between Jobs (BBJ)


BBJ Discontinues Weekly Meetings

 Businesspersons Between Jobs (BBJ) is announcing that, effective immediately,  it is discontinuing its traditional weekly (Monday AM) meetings.  This includes both the onsite meetings at  St. Mark Presbyterian Church as well as the ZOOM-based online meetings. 

BBJ will continue to maintain its website as a source of past presentations and articles relevant to the job search that job-seekers can review or download.

Moreover,  job seekers are encouraged to contact BBJ personnel through the website to seek job search advice on resume content, interviewing skills, and networking strategies.

Over its 49 year history, BBJ has worked to serve the local community by assisting job seekers in developing their unique professional skills and to effectively communicate those abilities to prospective employers.

However, attendance at the weekly (Monday AM) meeting has steadily declined in recent years. The growth of digital communication has changed the way employers recruit and the way job seekers approach the job market.

BBJ would like to express its appreciation to its members and staff for their loyalty and participation, and to the many professional speakers who have generously donated their time and talents over the years.

Develop Your Personal Brand

Companies search for you online.  Sometimes, every day.  Why?  They want to see who you are and what you do.  Sounds simple, right?  Unfortunately, job seekers don’t take the time to develop their strong, personal online brand.  Making a serious commitment to strengthen your own brand is critical. 

LinkedIn is a highly visible digital resume site where judgements about you are made.  Everyone uses LinkedIn and assesses the strength or weakness of a profile.  It’s critical you look good for your friends, family, your support team, people you network with, recruiters, placement firms, or hiring managers! 

So, does your personal brand stand out?  Here are some articles that will help you.
