Career Bank at TNT

Rabbi Katz’s Kol Nidre sermon spoke about the need for Temple Ner Tamid to meet people at the most important moments in their life. Among those, we know that finding a job that is fulfilling and meaningful certainly fits the bill.

For this reason, we are launching a community-wide initiative that will help us to create the caring community that we all desire.

We are putting together a Temple Ner Tamid Career Exploration Bank that will link Temple Ner Tamid job seekers with those who are already working in their desired field for an informational interview about their work. Another purpose of the Bank is to provide a resource for children of TNT members who are exploring career paths and making important life decisions before, during and after their college years.

The “Bank” will live online and in a folder at Temple in the office. Here’s how it will work: Job seekers or career seekers of any sort (recent graduates, mid-career or later in career or even Hebrew high school students) will reach out to other TNT members who have indicated a willingness to make themselves available for an informational interview (phone or in person) and a career/job chat. It’s a 45-minute commitment each time you do it – and you can help a TNT community job seeker at a REALLY important time.

Step 1 is to build the bank of volunteers willing to talk with other TNT members about their line of work – or a former line of work. As a mentor, all you need is 45 minutes and a willingness to talk about your line of work in an informational interview. 

Please let us know if you would be willing to take part and talk to interested job seekers.

Sign up today to be a mentor! 

Rabbi Katz was the first to sign up. All potential future Rabbis, he wants to chat with you.

Will you join us in this effort to link members of our community and support them in a search for a meaningful career?
