Old Bridge college student has unique plan to find job

Congratulations to Georgian Court University student & Creative Click Media's intern Troy Allen! OLD BRIDGE - Township resident Troy Allen has come up with a unique marketing strategy that is not only putting a few extra bucks in his pocket, but has the goal of landing him a full-time job. Allen, 23, who is graduating May 25 from Georgian Court University in Lakewood with a 3.95 GPA, is selling advertising space on his graduation cap, which will also contain his resume. The advertising space is being sold for $50 per quadrant. Advertising space on the entire cap initially was available for $180 or would be free to the business that offered him a full-time job. Since Allen has already sold two of the quadrants on the cap, he is offering the remaining advertising space for free to a business that hires him full time. Read more on Asbury Park Press

Guides to help employers hire Veterans, Reservists and National Guard Members

Free Guides to help employers hire Veterans, Reservists and National Guard Members we have published for you to share with your Chamber members.  The Guides cover federal tax benefits, best practices for recruiting veterans, and compliance with federal contractor regulations.  The Guides are especially helpful to smaller employers which have limited HR resources.   So far, more than 125,000 copies of these free Guides have been downloaded by employers and associations across the U.S.  Sponsors of the Guides include Phillips 66, The Marcus Foundation and DaVita Corporation.  Two prestigious law firms donated their time to help us prepare the Guides – Baker & McKenzie, and Caplin & Drysdale.   There are nearly one million veterans and service members across the U.S. looking for full-time jobs that will take advantage of their training, skills and experience.  More than 200,000 service members leave the military every year to transition to civilian employment.   Center for America (CFA), a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization, has published these Guides to help employers identify and hire veterans and service members more efficiently and faster.  CFA coordinates the American Jobs for America’s Heroes campaign in which more than 2,000 U.S. employers are participating.    Please share the

The 80th Annual Walk to Washington & Congressional Dinner

After a several-year hiatus, the GTRCC was back in-action during The 80th Annual Walk to Washington & Congressional Dinner. While we didn’t ride (aka “walk”) the train, several members of the Ocean County Commerce Coalition (affectionately known as the OC3) piled into the car at 9pm on Wednesday night.  In all honesty, I was nestled in the backseat surrounded by my blanket and neckpillow because 9pm is past my bedtime. If you’re asking why we didn’t take the train, it was because we scheduled several meetings in DC early the next day and the train would have prevented us from taking those meetings. Jeremy, Lori, and I started our day at Senator Menendez’s office where we shared about the work we are doing in Ocean County.  We also discussed our willingness to support the Senator’s pro-business initiatives in any way possible.  His representative was appreciative of our efforts and we look forward to collaborating with Senator Menendez’s team in the months to come. After our Senate building visit, we made our way (via a very, very, very strange cab ride that I think we all feel fortunate that we lived to tell about) to the United States Chamber office for
