Job Club

The purpose of the Job Club is to provide a positive environment for motivated job seekers to meet, connect, share and learn. Each Job Club meeting will consist of a brief career-related program and provide time for sharing and networking among attendees. Some program topics include: job search strategies, a personal 30-second commercial, resumes, networking, interviewing, finances, unemployment benefits, social media and goal setting. Each session will be presented by a UK Alumni Association career counselor, UK HR career development manager, Cooperative Extension agents or other content experts. Business attire is encouraged.

When and Where Will Job Club Be Held?

The free group is open to the public and will meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Fayette County Cooperative Extension office, 1140 Red Mile Place, Lexington, KY. Convenient, free parking is available. Please see the above meeting schedule for specific meeting times.

Is Job Club for You?

Job Club is for you if you are currently out of work, underemployed or motivated and looking to make a career transition. For more information, call the UK Alumni Association at 859-257-8905 or the Fayette Cooperative Extension Office at 859-257-5582.

Employer Involvement

Recruiters and employers are always welcome to attend to network with attendees and share hiring needs. Time is reserved following each meeting for employers to share a bit about their hiring needs and connect with attendees. If you are unable to attend, Job Club meeting facilitators would be happy to announce job leads on your behalf. Job descriptions and other position information can be emailed to Caroline Francis under the subject of “Employment Opportunities for Job Club"
