Job Postings

Hidden jobs are welcomed for sharing at If the job your neighbor, friend or family shared with you is not right for you, it might be perfect for an August Group colleague.  This is a great place for practicing "give to get." With 1600 members, what can happen here when members own the content?

We welcome volunteers to coordinate the job postings on a weekly basis. Employers and members submit jobs that must be readied for inclusion in the newsletter.  A lack of help means fewer jobs get posted in a timely manner. Why not be the first one to see new postings.

Beyond Networking: Relationship Management

By systematically staying in touch, Hart is practicing relationship management. Rather than taking a haphazard, scattershot approach to cultivating contacts, Hart has a plan. She uses her newsletter to proactively build and refresh business connections.
Unfortunately, few people – - and even fewer organizations – - understand how the daily work of building business relationships can result in the achievement of overall, long -term strategic goals. Continue reading at: ….
