Job Postings

Hidden jobs are welcomed for sharing at jobs@augustgroup.org. 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.

Links to share

Got a link you want to share?  Send it to newsletter@augustrgroup.org and put "Link to share" in the Subject Line.

This seems like a great resource – they offer free job aids (reference sheets) for Word, Outlook, PPT, Access, Excel, Project, Visio, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and more…….. you can also sign on for free training and paid training….

They state that it’s spam free…..

I’m not affiliated with them at all, so I’m not recommending them beyond saying that their content looks good. I just downloaded a few….so I’m new to them as well.

  • "Each man has his own vocation; his talent is his call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him."
    ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • "You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it."

    ~ Lee Iacocca
