When I was laid off from my last traditional job in February 2009, I searched high and low, as did many individuals at that time, for my next job.
I found many individuals who were in the same situation, with few resources to help us become better job seekers. That’s why I founded Unemployed in Des Moines. This group helped me hone my website building skills, helped me understand the power of social media to bring people together around a shared interest, understand the value of networking and to be more comfortable speaking in public.
The second Tuesday of every month from 7:15-8:30am, the Euclid Hy-Vee hosts a networking event with FREE breakfast. They’ve been doing this for four years. Great networking group. It’s now affiliated with the Des Moines East South Chamber. Attendees share their 30-second commercial with the group followed by a program.
With their Grand Opening on December 27, 2014, Strudl Haus is the newest addition to Des Moines’ international culinary scene.
