Posted: Monday, May 24, 2010
Melinda Inglis, General Education instructor at Virginia College at Huntsville, Alabama, recently spoke to the St. Joseph the Worker Job Networking Club. She was invited to speak on the subject of job search communication. Her presentation included information on cover, application, prospecting and networking, and thank you letters. She also spoke about resumes, job acceptance and refusal letters, and emails.
Ms. Inglis teaches EDU 1010, English, and EDU 1020 at the Huntsville campus, as well as serving as the advisor to the PASS IT ON student civic organization. The St. Joseph the Worker Job Networking Club is a unique organization that meets weekly at a local church in nearby Madison, Alabama. They have nearly 200 members and an outreach of almost 500 when supporters, mentors, and speakers are factored in. There are generally 50-70 members at a meeting each week.
Karen Martin-Hearon, advisor to the Business Club at the Huntsville campus of Virginia College, accompanied Ms. Inglis. She is investigating the possibility of opening a "sister" job club at the school.
