Business Persons Between Jobs is pleased to announce that our traditional weekly Monday morning meetings will be resuming on Monday, March 30, at 9:00AM CST.

HOWEVER, considering the need for compliance with mandatory ‘stay at home’ directives necessary to contain the coronavirus threat, future BBJ meetings will be convened online via ZOOM-based software.

We are happy to implement ZOOM to continue with our primary mission – to assist in developing your unique skills and abilities to meet the challenges of the job search.  Whether you need to freshen up your employment resume, practice your interviewing skills, or learn more about networking techniques, we are here to offer our services.
The ZOOM program and technology, which can be accessed on a desktop computer, iPhone, or iPad is relatively user-friendly and straightforward.
