Week 1 Prompts & Structure (60 mins)

First, Start with introductions (or a check in) and each person shares something fun about themselves. 5-6 minutes.

  • Review the Prompt and decide who will keep the time or how it can be done.
  • Based on PD focus, decide whether breakout rooms will be used in pairs or smaller groups. 5 minutes.
  • Discuss or revisit group norms if needed. These could include: How does your group communicate and provide feedback? Holding each other accountable How and if you will communicate outside of Wednesday group meetings?

Next, start Job Search Activity

  • An excellent way to start and or continue a successful job search is by getting clear on your target audience by narrowing your search.
  • Here is a worksheet to help identify your Job Search Targets. If it makes sense for the stage of your job search, make a copy and start researching.
  • Feel free to move on to the next activity if you have completed a similar job search reflection and have narrowed your job search.
  • Getting started with a Proactive Job Search

Then, wrap up: 10 minutes

  • Each person shares one takeaway: a question, a need for support, or an action item you will complete by the next House meeting in week 3.
  • If you are short on time, decide if posting a thread in your house channel is a good way to hold each other accountable and celebrate your good work today!
