COVID-19 update: JSN is canceling our in person Monday morning meetings until May 4, in accordance with coronavirus recommendations to cancel meetings of 10 or more.

Our heart and prayers are with those suffering, the government and healthcare leaders making critical decisions, and with you all who are in the job search.

We know it’s an uncertain time for you, and we want you to know that we are here for you, are praying for you, and want to provide you with some great support and training during this time that we are not meeting in person.
