We are meeting online to stay safe!

In the Chicago area, multiple job clubs charge $20 to see ONE of these presentations. We give you instant access to ALL 49 of these seminars given by some of the same presenters speaking at the other clubs. As a member of our club you can also get first access to every new seminar each month, including the speakers who are exclusive to our club!

Plus our members have access to an Advanced Networking Course like none other. This course does NOT share magical stories of networking lottery winners (“I was standing in line for coffee and…yadda, yadda, yadda…I now work for that guy from the coffee shop!“). We focus on specific, high-probability networking strategies.

Take the course and watch these seminars from anywhere, at any time, and unlike live presentations, you can skip over tips you already know, or rewind to write down the ones you don’t. No more sitting through stories you already heard or missing a tip that was said too fast.

By the way, we remove all the, “can you guys see my screen?” moments from our videos! Your time is too valuable for that.

There are no long term obligations. On going access to the club is just $19 per month, but if you prefer live meetings at predetermined times for $20 per meeting at the other clubs, you can cancel your $19 Job Club subscription any time with no questions asked…well…with no questions from us anyway, you may want to question yourself about that decision though. 🤣 kidding of course, do what you gotta do, we just hope it’s with us.

You won’t find a collection of seminars or a course like this anywhere else. If you want results from your networking, join this club!
