Unemployed college graduates meet tomorrow at 7:30 PM...June 12th event for women out of work
Release Date: June 10, 2014

For over 5 years I have organized a job club--helping the unemployed find work. I send out frequent job updates to those who are seeking employment...have created a www.linkedin.com (greenburgh jobs group). We sponsor special forums. And, have had many successes helping people find employment.


 Tomorrow evening (June 10) we're focusing on unemployed college graduates. In recent years many parents (including parents of Ivy League graduates) have contacted me complaining--they spent over a quarter of a million dollars on their son or daughters education. And--their son/daughter is now unemployed, underemployed or working for free (or nearly for free as an unpaid intern).


I have asked Elizabeth Skovron, a student intern and an honors student at SUNY Albany to devote the summer--trying to help unemployed graduates strategize on a plan to find great employment opportunities.  FIRST MEETING: TOMORROW EVENING AT 7:30 PM



Unemployed College Students' & Graduates' You Are Not Alone


College students' and recent graduates have taken all of the correct steps towards success. The problem, however, is that many of us are dropped after graduation. There is a broken bridge between college and the professional world. We are "promised" that if we do everything the right way, there will be a job available. There isn't a clear transition between college and entering the professional world; especially when the unemployment rates for college graduates continue to increase.  Together we can generate ideas. Join me Tuesday, June 10, 7:30PM at the Greenburgh Town Hall to brainstorm solutions about this prevalent problem.


Please email eskovron@albany.edu for further information.



Another organization is having a function for women out of work on June 12 from 10:30 to 12 at 80 Theodore Fremd Ave. Check the website of sparkup.org for more details.

Good afternoon Paul and Elizabeth,
I just read the letter to the editor in the Westchester County Business Journal addressing your forum for recent graduates looking for employment opportunities.
I would like to let you know that on October 17th, the Westchester County Association will again hosts its annual Recruit Westchester event, a collaborative job and internship fair for students and alumni of the 16 colleges and universities that have signed a memorandum of understanding with the WCA in Westchester County. Last year’s event attracted approx. 140 employers and over 2,000 alumni and students. We are dedicated to finding meaningful jobs for Westchester graduates, and are happy to see that someone else is also taking up the cause.

CERT is organizing a blood drive on June 17th at 11:30 to 4:30 at Greenburgh Town Hall café. Call 1 800 Red Cross to RSVP. Participants are entered into a raffle  for a $50 gas card
