Dear Alumni,

What is a Job Club You May Wonder?

A Job Club (aka Job Finding Club or Job Support Group) is a strategy to search for jobs using the context of a group or a partner, rather than searching in isolation. It was invented in 1973 by Nathan Azarin (The Career Counselor’s Handbook – Howard Figler & Richard N Bolles). Some experts believe that it has a 70% success rate i.e. Out of 100 job seekers, 70 will find a job based on this method, but 30 will not, if they use a Job Club as their only job search strategy (What Color is your Parachute? 2012 – Richard N. Bolles). Job Clubs may range in size from 2 to 12 persons, and can have a variety of structures and approaches; with the main aim of keeping job seekers strategically motivated, and in-action towards finding jobs.
