Job club—and a job opening at Greenburgh Town Court
Are you out of work? I send people who subscribe to my unofficial job club almost daily announcements of job openings that I learn of. Have been doing this for three and a half years. I estimate that I have helped over 80 people find employment. If you would like to get job opening notices (the jobs are in the private sector and in the public sector) please advise. I also set up a site on www.linkedin.com (greenburgh jobs group). Feel free to join this linkedin group.
