The New Start Career Network and New Jersey’s Long-Term Unemployed Workers Need Your Help!

The New Start Career Network (NSCN) is seeking volunteer career coaches and professionals with backgrounds in career counseling, recruiting, executive search, human resources, and related fields. We are looking for qualified and dedicated career coaches and other career professionals who are willing to donate their services and expertise to helping New Jersey’s long-term unemployed job seekers.

The Commitment

Starting in October 2015, NSCN asks that interested individuals donate two to four hours per week over a minimum of a six-month period to help coach one or more NSCN members.

We also ask that our volunteer career coaches be willing to complete brief questionnaires and participate in periodic NSCN meetings with other NSCN coaches to exchange information on their experiences helping job seekers.

By joining us, you become an important part of a statewide, Rutgers University-based team dedicated to reducing long-term unemployment in New Jersey. Your efforts will also contribute to a better understanding of strategies that are effective in serving job seekers and assist in developing policies in New Jersey that can serve as a model for the nation.
