TBE Cares: Career Connections

This is a group for Temple Beth Elohim congregants interested in connecting with others in the business world. The goal of this community group is to allow an easy forum in which participants are able to help other community members in need.

Congregants at TBE are fortunate to be supported in so many aspects and transitions of our lives. From celebrating milestones to being supported by the community during illness and tragedy - TBE is deeply integrated into almost all aspects of our lives.

TBE Cares: Career Connections is a new initiative that will provide a way to help congregants feel supported by TBE in their professional lives, too. The goals of this new initiative are as follows:

  • To create a way for interested members to network and establish professional connections
  • To offer immediate, confidential support to people in career transition by choice or due to circumstances
  • To provide education and resources to help members - from college students to older adults - be successful professionally (e.g., resume critique, interview do’s and don’ts, networking ideas)

Career Transition Support

Immediate and confidential support is available for people who

  1. Are in need of help with tools to manage a current career situation,
  2. Could use a professional ear before making a career decision

If you or someone you know might benefit from a confidential meeting to process or plan a job situation, contact a TBE clergy member.
