Other Job Clubs

Job Clubs are often available through community colleges and workforce development.  Beware of job posting services who charge either you or the employer a fee - and call themselves job clubs.  There is no fee for attending the Fairfield Job Club.  Example of the Job Club services offered by Kirkwood Community College:  http://www.kirkwood.edu/site/index.php?p=17913   Our local community college and workforce development folks have done a job club for laid off John Deere employees: 

History of Job Clubs

Job Clubs have been around since the 1970's, when Dr. Nathan Azrin invented the Job Club concept: part support group, part job seeking skills workshop, part job leads generator.  Azrin's job clubs in Central Illinois averaged 90 percent placement in 90 days, even with unskilled individuals in a down economy.  These results are not guaranteed, and you might or might not find a job through the Fairfield Job Club - but what else are you doing with a higher chance of success?
