Focus Groups

Focus groups are small, self-directed groups of people (usually 5 to 10) that meet outside of the weekly LVP meeting to share and discuss job search activities.  Focus groups are centered around industry clusters, career interests or volunteer service projects.

Focus Group Benefits

The real value of a focus group comes from the participants’ reaction and response to each other’s experiences and opinions. The group provides mutual support, encouragement and accountability following an active project management approach. Focus groups provide you with new skills and opportunities to stay at the top of your game while helping others.  Additional benefits include:
  • Maintain positive job search focus by enhancing technical skills and improving leadership skills
  • Add focus group project accomplishments to your resume repertoire
  • Develop new and engaging talking points for any networking or interviewing situation
