We screwed up: CareerConnection's Arlington affiliate growing

CareerConnection spun out an Arlington affiliate earlier this year. It meets Thursday nights at Grace Lutheran Church in Arlington.

With the statewide unemployment rate at more than seven percent, thousands of North Texans are currently looking for jobs. And many are turning to an organization called CareerConnection, a non-profit dedicated to helping all levels of professionals facing career transitions. Due to this unprecedented growth, a new ministry called CareerConnection, Too has just been announced. The program will be a direct extension of its counterpart, taking place on Tuesday evenings at Fellowship Bible Church Dallas.

Every Tuesday beginning July 28th, members will meet for a general session including workshops and speeches by industry executives. They will have the opportunity to network and join in on exercises to improve job searching skills as well as career prospects. CareerConnection, Too strives to develop strong relationships with area companies, trade/ professional associations, civic groups and social networks. They aim to create a better DFW economy by connecting professionals with local businesses as well as community leaders.

Anyone facing a transition or interested in furthering his or her career is encouraged to attend. Contacts, job leads, and emotional support are just a few benefits of regular participation. CareerConnection, Too meets every Tuesday evening from 6-9 p.m. at Fellowship Bible Church Dallas located at 9330 North Central Expressway Dallas, TX 75231.
