  2. 2. Mission Statement The mission of St. Louis Career Networking Meetup Group, a volunteer network, is to maximize the effectiveness of networking for professionals during career transitions, through group meetings, seminar attendance, social media, and voluntary support. “ Helping Professionals Help Themselves” is our motto and way of giving back to our Professional Community Website: www.meetup.com/stlcareernetworking
  3. 3. About Us <ul><li>St. Louis Career Networking Meetup is a social media networking group that encourages members to meet like minded professionals, build new career relationships, and create a list of contacts to aid them in their transitions between careers. As a group member, we will encourage you to partner with others in our meetup, participate in networking events and seminars, and share valuable information. In addition, we will provide you with words of encouragement. We strive to get all new members to participate, become familiar with the list of members in our meetup, and actively network both inside and outside the St. Louis Career Networking Meetup group. If you see a job that's not suitable for you and it's perfect for another meetup member, contact them directly, pass on the information via our message boards, or ask an organizer to share with the entire group. Consider this meetup group your JOB TREE. The goal of the St. Louis Career Networking Meetup group is to consolidate career resource information from multiple sites in one location, support professionals in career transitions, and obtain a job via our social media network. The objective is to get you out of the house, feel good about yourself, and to start talking to others. Yes that's networking! The more participation our meetup members have, the greater opportunities for success.
