Benefits of Job Clubs for Executive Job Seekers: A Tale of Hares and Tortoises
Kondo, Christopher T.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v46 n1 p27 Mar 2009
This qualitative research study compares the experiences of 2 groups of executive job seekers--job club members and nonmembers--through thematic analysis of open-ended interviews. The findings indicated that job club members benefited from group learning, increased accountability, networking opportunities, emotional support, helping other members, and enhanced understanding of the context of their experiences. Job club members also enjoyed lower levels of frustration with the search process, used a wider range of outplacement firm services, and devoted more time on average to job search activities. Suggestions for practical implementation and application of results are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
