misc_magnifying_glass.GIF 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM TEWKSBURY JOB SEEKERS NETWORK: How To Turn A Connector Into A Champion Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Robert Hayes   978-640-4490 x 205   rhayes@mvlc.org
   

All conversations in career development and job seeking are negotiations—people interacting to get their interests met (their needs, motivations, and aspirations). This session will focus on understanding what is important to the other person—be it an informational or job interview—and what to do about it. We will discuss how to figure out what interests connectors and decision makers have, how to bring them into the discussion, and how to generate options to fulfill them. We will also look at your own interests and how to get them met. Instead of pleading for an informational interview or a job, this workshop will change the frame to how you and connectors can help each other, and how you can focus on the fit (for both of you) with decision makers for potential jobs. 

Tad Mayer is president of Career Negotiations and an experienced coach, trainer, and speaker. As a career coach, he has written a book with two co-authors (Own the Job Hunt due out in 2017) and uses the OJH model to create relief, hope, direction, and results in the form of fulfilling career trajectories with people new to the workforce and frustrated professionals feeling stuck in their careers. As an adjunct professor, Tad has taught negotiation courses at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. Tad has been quoted in online venues like USNews and his writing has been featured in books such as Money Talks: 100 Strategies to Master Tricky Conversations about Money. Tad has been Manager of Domestic Pricing at Northwest Airlines, Director of Partner Marketing at Sheraton Hotels, and Director of Commercial and Corporate Programs at Mediation Works Incorporated. He has an MBA from The Tuck School at Dartmouth College and a BS in Communication Studies from Northwestern University.    

The Tewksbury Job Seekers Network meets every Monday at 2pm in the library's first-floor Meeting Room or second-floor Conference Room. The group is open to anyone who is unemployed, underemployed, or looking to change careers. Attendees do NOT need to be residents of Tewksbury. Limited to 25 seats. There will be time for networking after each presentation. Dress is business casual. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown this January.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of December. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: The story of the American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany. Out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant this February.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of January. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: Addie Baum is The Boston Girl, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters.  Growing up in the North End, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can’t imagine—a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school and dreams of going to college. She wants a career and to find true love. Written with the same attention to historical detail and emotional resonance that made Anita Diamant’s previous novels bestsellers, The Boston Girl is a moving portrait of one woman’s complicated life in twentieth century America, and a fascinating look at a generation of women finding their places in a changing world.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading After You by Jojo Moyes this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of March. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: 

This unexpected sequel to Moyes's Me Before You reveals what happened to Louisa Clark after that book's heart-wrenching finale. Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await. After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes—a novel that will make you laugh, cry, and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do—revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading Kitchens of the Great Midwest by Jojo Moyes this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of April. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: 

The story of a young woman with a once-in-a-generation palate who becomes the iconic chef behind the country’s most coveted dinner reservation. When Lars Thorvald’s wife, Cynthia, falls in love with wine—and a dashing sommelier—he’s left to raise their baby, Eva, on his own. He’s determined to pass on his love of food to his daughter—starting with pureed pork shoulder. As Eva grows, she finds her solace and salvation in the flavors of her native Minnesota. From Scandinavian lutefisk to hydroponic chocolate habaneros, each ingredient represents one part of Eva’s journey as she becomes the star chef behind a legendary and secretive pop-up supper club, culminating in an opulent and emotional feast that’s a testament to her spirit and resilience.
