Welcome to Businesspersons Between Jobs (BBJ)

Businesspersons Between Jobs, known as BBJ, is a non-denominational job search support group assisting unemployed and underemployed people at different stages of their careers.  We have been proudly serving the St. Louis community for over 40 years.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

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.
