At JSFG, networking is more than a buzzword. Members and special guest volunteers actively mentor, listen, coach, learn, teach, share the latest workforce/marketplace developments and hold each other accountable for acting upon our plans.

Human connections remain the best way to get hired. Our network of fellow job seekers, alumni, career coaches, and employment experts can help you make your next, best move.

What Makes JSFG Unique

Contemporary Career Resources

Determine your transferable skills, learn from workshops and webinars, and find services in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

There are few organizations that serve a group of experienced professionals at such a low cost.

Share your frustrations with an audience that truly understands. Craft your first resume or your first resume in decades. Explore new career paths. Determine your target companies. Develop your elevator pitch and interview skills. Practice proven techniques to sell your talent.

All the while, you'll make valuable connections that could help you land your next job.


Who can join JSFG?

Anyone seeking new employment is welcome. 

How much does JSFG cost?

All we ask for $10 a quarter to cover operating expenses and six hours of volunteer work a month. 

How do I prepare for my first meeting?

We recommend dressing for professional networking. Whether that entails a suit or leans more business casual is entirely up to you. 

You may find it helpful to bring a current resume and business cards, but they're absolutely not required. 

We provide coffee, tea, and water. Feel free to bring a snack: preferably a quiet one!

What should I expect on my first visit?

Our orientation for first time members that begins promptly at 8 AM.  While the church parking lot is reserved for another function, there is plenty of free street parking available. 

After orientation, you'll join the standard meeting and have the opportunity to network with current members.
