Being a Monday Night Speaker

What is a Hudson Job Search Monday Night Speaker and how do I become one?

Becoming a Monday Night Speaker for Hudson Job Search

At Hudson Job Search we not only pair job seekers up with Advisors, a one-on-one coach to help them through their job search, we also provide two meetings each month featuring a Monday Night Speaker. These meetings provide the job seekers with an opportunity to network with other job seekers, share ideas and learn from the expertise of our Monday Night Speaker. 

If you have expertise in areas that would be helpful to job seekers, enjoy helping job seekers and would like to improve your reach, consider being a speaker for one of our Monday Night Speaker Meetings. 

Meeting Details:


Speaker Meetings are on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month from 7:15-9:00 PM. A typical agenda is 7:15-7:30 networking, 7:30-7:45 introduction to HJS, 7:45-8:00 attendee introductions, 8:00-8:50 featured speaker content, 8:50-9:00 wrap-up.


Meetings during the winter months are online only (December – April). By May our meetings are a blend of online and in-person at Christ Church Episcopal in Hudson, OH. Speakers can present from either online or in-person locations.


Topics can be anything that a job seeker would find helpful. These have included resume writing, interviewing techniques, using LinkedIn, networking, salary negotiation, organizing a job search and the power of a positive attitude.

How will my Speaker Meeting be promoted?
