Topic: Stay Encouraged

Stay Encouraged in the Job Search! Those of us who have gone through the job search experience know it is easy to lose steam, become depressed, and not invest the time to network, network and network some more. It is OK to have a bad day, but it is crucial to remain positive and focused during the search.

How do you remain positive when so many of the responses you get are not? Come to this month's meeting to find out.

Our speaker, Tim Mante, combines his wisdom and maturity earned from 23 years of law enforcement experience with 8 years of teaching, and a little fun and humor. He is a service driven professional who has a customer service attitude to solve problems in all his work experiences.

His NYPD experiences in one of the busiest precincts in NY City focused on crime scene investigations specializing in robbery and burglary. His skills as a mentor were instrumental in preparing new officers with critical patrol and investigative skills. After leaving the force, he continued to teach and mentor in Criminal Justice at a technical High School and Community College. He has taught numerous courses in Criminal Justice, Terrorism and Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

As an Operations Manager for G4S Secure Solutions for 6 years, he was responsible for the daily operations, providing security to a variety of clients including 3 Fortune 500 companies World Headquarters. His focus was insuring excellent customer service with 500 employees across 50 locations in the New York City Metro area. He is currently the Acting General Manager responsible for a $20M budget and all over sight of the staffing and HR process.

Tim has been Blessed on his Spiritual Journey with having too much work, just enough work, and not enough work. The lessons learned from struggling to find meaningful and work have been to remain positive, resilient and tenacious.As an EARN graduate, he gained many valuable lessons, strategies, ideas and opportunities to Stay Encouraged. His aim is to share many of these ideas and strategies with you to buoy you in your job search.

Career Transition Plan

People will change careers 7 times as adults. This is a fairly recent situation. So it is very important that people understand and master Job Changes. Many people take what they think is a temporary job to cover some mounting expenses only to find that they have entered a new field for which they are ill prepared. The Career Transition Process identifies many of the topics one must master or at least be acquainted with. The Process is a general transition flow chart that represents major steps from Transitioning out of a company, Knowing Yourself, Marketing Yourself, Selling Yourself, Negotiating a New Job and ultimately to Keeping Your Next Job. There are many job search topics one must learn about to successfully find a new job. These topics are associated with each of the major steps. EARN speakers address these topics throughout the year and the Job Search Work Team covers many in more detail. For more information, visit our Career Transition Plan Page.

Job Search Work Team (JSWT)

The Job Search Work Team is intended for those people that are looking for work who are willing to step-up and better organize their search efforts. The purpose of the team is simple: the appropriate placement of each team member as soon as possible. The team functions as:

  • An advisory panel that provides guidance in dealing with day-to-day issues and problems of job hunting. By hearing and providing advice on a wide range of practical issues, team members learn more quickly how to conduct an effective search.
  • A core network that expands your personal network by sharing leads, information and contacts. Team meet meetings are designed to accelerate networking within the group, and the team becomes a learning laboratory for networking.
  • A task support group that encourages members to support each other in their search projects. Team members pledge a limited amount of time each week to assist other members. The team is a support community of people in transition.
  • A project management team that helps you monitor your progress, providing support to keep your search focused and productive.
The single most important factor affecting how long a job search takes is how hard and how consistently you work on it. For more information, visit the Job Search Work Team Page.
