What is it? Job clubs are small groups of job seekers that meet regularly to share experiences and job contacts while benefiting from peer support and motivation.
Who provides it? Job clubs are often hosted at public libraries or other community spaces and provide support networks for individuals navigating the job market. Job clubs may also be held virtually.
Why is it important? Searching for a new job can be a long and frustrating process, especially for populations that often face discrimination in hiring, such as older workers and minorities. Job clubs not only provide opportunities to network and learn from others’ knowledge and experience, but they can provide invaluable personal support to help job seekers persevere and succeed in securing employment.
