Mission

Teach and facilitate Networking among PMINJ members to support their personal and professional growth, engage career coaches and experts to provide guidance in navigating the job-search process, and promote exposure to career and business opportunities.

Scope

The PMINJ Career Networking Local Community of Interest (CNL) was established to facilitate business and career networking among PMINJ members. The CNL's goals are to provide additional networking opportunities to PMINJ members in the form of networking events, educational forums, and professional development opportunities. A structured networking event is hosted each month, with elements of speakers, panel discussions, job announcements, networking sessions and interactive workshops.

The CNL provides these services for interested PMINJ Project Managers:

  • Career Networking session prior to monthly Chapter meetings
  • Career Networking email list enabling notices and opportunities to be sent to CNL members
  • Reference information about other networking resources and previous speaker sessions

Monthly Sessions

Networking Sessions are held before monthly PMINJ Chapter meetings, at the Main location. Registration begins at 5:15pm; the Networking event starts at 5:30pm and runs until 6:25pm, giving members time to enjoy dinner before the main meeting. No separate per-registration is needed – just be sure to register for the chapter meeting, arrive a bit earlier, and join us.

This season, CNL is planning to host speaker presentations in September, October, February and May, and facilitated networking sessions in November, January, March, April and June.

Handouts from the meetings (when available) can be downloaded from the PMINJ chapter website. Go to Programs > Archive, and find the meeting of interest to download the handouts.

Upcoming Session

11/14/2017 - Open Networking

Is your job research yielding sufficient opportunities for face-to-face meetings with critical contacts and decision-makers? Should you switch industries to enhance your career options? PMINJ colleague Beth Kujan, PhD, PMP, of Tech Stevedore LLC, will share with us NJ-specific information on the fastest growing sectors and those in which the state government is investing the most resources. Beth will also discuss how best to leverage the dialog with New Jersey's mid-size and small businesses.

This is not a "quick fix". This is a way to meet people who can help you move across industry verticals and to learn about companies you didn't know about previously. Bodies in motion stay in motion. Bodies at rest stay at rest. Learn the easiest, cheapest ways to keep in motion. Meanwhile, you'll have interesting facts to share when someone asks you how your job search is going.

Beth Kujan, who earned a BS from M.I.T and MS/PhD from Cornell, has been immersed in entrepreneurial market development and managing bleeding-edge projects for more than ten years. Beth's expertise in coaxing out fascinating, useful data is a skill worth developing in your job search and for other reasons. If you're seeking a new position or career advancement, you need to hear this.

 Bring your Business Cards, and details of any opportunities you would like to share!
