We will be commemorating Juneteenth by bringing together friends for Cocktails with a Conscience. We'll discuss racial justice and learn from community members! This event is free and participants will receive a drink ticket for signing up!
What is Juneteenth? Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans throughout the former Confederacy of the southern United States. Its name is a portmanteau of "June" and "nineteenth", the date of its celebration. Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in forty-five states.

JWorks Miami invites you to attend a FREE Networking Skills workshop on Thursday, June 21st, 10:30am-12:30 pm. ###
Please RSVP at JWorks Miami - RSVP is required! The workshop will begin promptly at 10:30am, so please arrive a few minutes prior and dress to impress! Business casual attire is recommended.
Networking Works! The idea is to develop a network of people who share information to help each other. It can be a useful strategy for opening the hidden job market, i.e. for getting a good job. Because many jobs are never advertised, it is essential that you develop friendly relationships with people who can tip you off to job openings and perhaps even introduce you to the person who is doing the hiring. There is some truth in, "It's not what you know, but who you know."
Join us for what promises to be a great workshop and learn how to build a network to achieve greater success in your job search and beyond!
* What is networking?
* How to craft an impactful elevator pitch
* Networking tips to expand your circle
* Hidden job market
* Infomation interview
These events are also a great way for JWorks Miami staff to get to know you! Please note, we are unable to refer you to available opportunities unless we have met you in person.
All events will be held at:
Greater Miami Jewish Federation
4200 Biscayne Blvd.
Miami, FL 33137
Parking lot entrance is on Federal Highway, parallel to Biscayne Blvd. Map
If you have any questions please visit our website or call us at 305-403-6554.
We look forward to seeing you!
