      All are welcome to Career Connections at Calvary. There is no

      Career Connections is a job support group that meets at Calvary
      Church in Los Gatos on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 pm. About
      30-45 people usually attend, but the mailing list has about 300.
      The group is focused on providing tools, techniques, ideas, and
      networking to aid participants searching for new jobs. The group
      first started about ten years ago, but stopped in 2002/2003. In
      Feb 2009, we restarted the group, due to the state of the economy
      in the valley, and also prompted by several of us being laid off
      at about the same time in December, 2009.


      After joining the yahoo group, one may also join the "Career
      Connections at Calvary" LinkedIn group.
