Job Clubs
Career Development Handbook for Part-time Students

Job Clubs are groups of individuals getting together to support each other through the trials and tribulations of finding employment. The purpose of Job Club is to keep job seekers informed, motivated and connected. The design of the student-run Job Club sets the tone, flow, time and material covered. As the Job Club grows, it will continue to change to meet the needs of the participants.

Job Club should meet on a weekly basis for an entire quarter for the greatest effect. Each week, students will take turns running the group; every student will have the opportunity to be a leader in the process. These job clubs will tackle job search-related topics and address the needs and concerns of its group members who are looking for opportunities. The focus is on respect, support and commitment. The ideal number in a Job Club is between 5 and 8 participants. Job clubs are open to Part-time Students in both Sacramento and the Bay Area. Due to Sacramento’s close proximity to UC Davis, Sacramento Part-time Students are invited to join the Day Student Job Clubs.

Bay Area students who are registered with Career Development and have been through all the career development steps are welcome to form a Job Club located at Bishop Ranch. Due to Bay Area class schedules, the last two Job Clubs decided to meet every other week as opposed to every week, making it a two-quarter commitment. If you are interested in forming a Bay Area Job Club, you will need to take the lead to recruit others and decide on your schedule. Let Career Development know that you are recruiting and scheduling the days/times for the meeting. Once done, Career Development will coordinate your room scheduling and attend your kick off meeting to give you further direction.
