JobGroup Special Event: Informational Interviews, Networking, & Professional Photos

On Deck Sports Bar
910 NW 14th Ave
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)

We will have signs posted to direct you to the group.



Come learn about a valuable career skill while enjoying an opportunity to de-stress a bit from the holidays and career search with some informal networking!

Journalists know it, so why don't job seekers? The best way to get information...is an informational interview! Join us for a brief (15 minute) presentation on informational interview best practices that will include tangible actions you can take right away to improve your career management or job search.

Also, did you know that according to a study by TheLadders.com, nearly 20% of the time a typical recruiter spends looking at your LinkedIn profile is spent looking at your photo?!? JobGroup is here to help.

We are partnering with local photographer LeeAnn Gauthier at this event to provide an optional opportunity to get quality photos done for a very reasonable price. She will bring her portable studio-quality setup to OnDeck to give anyone who needs a good photo taken an opportunity to have one done.

If you want photos taken, the deal is this: For an upfront fee of $19 for one digital file (image) or 2 files (images) for $32, LeeAnn will do a studio-quality photoshoot with you at the event and provide access to her website for checking out the photos afterward. You provide back to her which photos you want and she will send them to you. Credit cards can not be accepted for this, so please bring cash or check if you want to take advantage of this opportunity, and remember to dress professionally to get the best use of your new photos.
