Austin Job Seekers Network is a free resource unemployed Central Texans can use

The nonprofit helps people network, practice interviews and land jobs.

AUSTIN, Texas — With unemployment benefits coming to an end Saturday night, being able to survive while finding work just got a lot harder for many.

But one local nonprofit says they are a free resource Central Texans can use to network and land a job.

Austin Job Seekers Network says it's important not to become discouraged during this tough time but to continue making as many connections as possible, letting people know you are looking for employment.

The nonprofit works hand-in-hand with local recruiters who say more and more jobs are starting to open in the Austin area and even more are expected in the coming weeks of 2021.

Executive Director Craig Foster said starting Jan. 11, the nonprofit will start weekly Zoom meetings that anyone is welcome to join for tips and networking opportunities.  

"There is a lot of reason for hope and Job Seekers Network helps people who don't know how to look for a job, resume, interviewing, LinkedIn, elevator pitch, everything you need to know. Over 12 years, we have developed a proven process that helps over 900 people a year find a job," Foster said.
