JobAngels Merges With Hiring for Hope

As a member of JobAngels, I received this notification via the LinkedIn group. JobAngels started on Twitter, evolved into other online tools (i.e. Facebook, LinkedIn) and now find itself a new home within Hiring for Hope.

Dear Friends,

We hope this finds you and your loved ones doing well and staying warm during this unusually cold winter. We want to communicate some very positive and exciting news!

Beginning today, Feb. 22, we will merge our two volunteer-based organizations. When we began exploring the benefits of joining together, it became clear that combining forces would enable us to quickly expand our outreach efforts and scope of services.

Hiring for Hope and JobAngels share a common value system, philosophy and mission to provide job seekers with free career management assistance and support from altruistically-motivated people. JobAngels' powerful employment networking concept, coupled with the vitality of its online community, nicely complements Hiring for Hope's extensive and growing infrastructure, suite of career management services, nationally-recognized 501(c)3 public charity status, and online networking and support community.

As with all important business decisions, we will work closely with each of you to make the integration and transition process as smooth as possible. JobAngels will transition into Hiring for Hope over the next several weeks, with both groups' social media pages integrating and services joined to form a comprehensive "suite" of free online career management services.

Going forward, JobAngels will be an official Hiring for Hope career management program that will continue to operate across social media pages and within the Voices of Hope online networking and support community.

Furthermore, effective Feb. 1, Mark Stelzner is a member of Hiring for Hope's Board of Director. Former JobAngels Volunteer Leaders Deirdre Honner and Mark Cummuta have decided to join our Advisory Board and Hiring for Hope warmly welcomes them!

All current JobAngels members are invited, and encouraged, to become a member of Hiring for Hope's Voices of Hope community, where you can join an array of networking and support groups organized by industry sector, geographic region and career level. It is a place where you can learn about and apply for career opportunities. Voices of Hope also has a robust selection of easy-to-use technology that links with many of the popular social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Voices of Hope's tools make it easier and faster for someone to expand their network, collaborate with others, find inspiration and moral support, and share HOPE and job leads.
