Job Search & Networking Tips for the COVID-19 Era

In response to the unprecedented amount of unemployment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic The LOFT is collaborating with David Wiacek, a certified professional career coach (CPCC) and proud LOFT Business Partner, to offer an on-line webinar on topics related to optimizing your job search.

David wants to hear from The LOFT community on what would be most beneficial to them by asking interested participants to complete this brief planning survey. Complete the survey here. 

Whether your job was adversely impacted during this time, you realized you want to change careers, or you are entering or reentering the workforce, all are welcome to take advantage of this event which The LOFT will be hosting on-line in June.  The center plans to offer this webinar twice, in the afternoon and evening, to allow for the most number of people to participate. Date and time TBD.

Virtual Support Groups Available

The LOFT is currently offering many of our Peer Support & Social Groups, virtually, via Zoom. The LOFT knows how important it is for our LGBTQ community to continue to safely connect with one another, especially in times of elevated stress and public concern. Although The LOFT's in-person groups and drop-in services are suspended at the moment, we want the community to know that we are still here to serve you.

How does this work?

Read our guidelines for using our LOFT Virtual Groups here. 

You can either video chat in or call in using only audio through your Zoom account.
