Career Coaches, Job Pros Volunteer Their Time

SANATOGA PA – Professionals in human resources, career coaches, and others involved in the business of helping people get and keep jobs are giving their time and knowledge away so residents of western Montgomery, eastern Berks and northern Chester counties can stay fully employed.

All are members of, or partners with, the Sanatoga-based TriCounty Community Network, 2151 E. High St., in its free monthly Mobile Job Lab program. Volunteers from the network, and career services representatives from Montgomery County Community College, assist participants with searching for jobs, writing resumes and using the Linked-In social media platform to create career profiles and broaden their networks.

Walk-ins are welcome. The next three job labs, which also appear on The Post Publications calendar, are scheduled for:

  • Sept. 13 (2017; Wednesday) from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at the DEC Training Center, 950 E. High St., Pottstown;
  • Oct. 11 (Wednesday) from 5-7 p.m. in North Hall at Montgomery County Community College, 16 High St., Pottstown; and
  • Nov. 8 (Wednesday) from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at Pottstown memorial Medical Center, 1600 E. High St., Pottstown.

Participants also can meet with representatives from the college’s University Center partners – Albright College, Cabrini College, Chestnut Hill College, Immaculata University and Temple University – to learn about their programs and available degrees and certificates.

Mobile Job Lab has impressed area state Sen. Bob Mensch, who earlier this year devoted a portion of his periodic television program to meet and talk with its representatives. Watch his video (above), or see it at the network’s YouTube channel, here.
