Newtown Career Networking Group

We Meet the 3rd Monday of the Month @ 7:00 PM

(networking starts at 6:45 PM)

Next Meeting is November 21, 2022

Our presenter for our next meeting is Harris Gubin, a well-respected franchise coach known as the ‘go to’ resource for Career and Transition Coaches whose clients are exploring the next chapter in their lives. Please note this meeting is an in-person meeting.

PRESENTATION TOPIC: Want to be your own boss, but need a great idea?

It’s easy to dream about being your own boss and controlling your own destiny. The tough part is making it happen. Franchising is one path to consider on your journey – and it’s never been more advantageous. Their built-in recipes for success attract entrepreneurs looking for more certainty in uncertain times.

In this presentation, Harris Gubin, our franchise subject matter expert, will help you discover what it means to “explore franchising” as a potential opportunity for the next chapter in your life – one that offers the autonomy, financial stability, and the flexibility to do all the things you’re passionate about in life.

Learn how other professionals in corporate America made the life-changing move to successful business ownership. Like you, they had questions before taking that first step. Here are some of the key questions Harris will answer:

• Why should I own a business?
• How do I determine the right path for me?
• What are the pros and cons of owning a franchise?

Please join us, as we explore franchising as a potential next step in the job search.

Important Announcement

Please join me in welcoming Andrew Gelfand as the new Director of the Newtown Career Networking Group. Andrew is a superior networker, and one of the co-founders of Whine & Dine, a leading networking group serving the Human Resources community. He is currently engaged as an HR professional for a local non-profit organization. With this background he enjoys a broad base of contacts, as well as access to a wide host of recruiters.

Andrew will be supported by Mitchell Goldberg who was the founder and director of another local job-seeker support group. Mitchell brings thirty years of practical Marketing, Sales, and business management knowledge and experience to the group, and will be a tremendous resource.

It has been my distinct pleasure to meet and assist so many fine people in their search to find not only their next job, but to ensure that that job would also be the RIGHT position for them. So it is with mixed feelings that I pass the baton of leadership to Andrew and Mitchell. Happy about the prospect of opening up the next chapter of my life in Wilmington, NC, and knowing that I leave the group in good hands - with strong skills and a shared passion for helping others. I'm sure they will bring with them fresh ideas that will only strengthen the value of the service we provide, but at the same time I am saddened that I will miss the warmth and friendships that we've developed with one another over the past eight years. Please feel free to keep in touch. You can reach me at or 215-200-9035

Best wishes to all!

About Us

The Newtown Career Networking Group, was established in January, 2010 by and for talented people who were displaced by the recession. We're a secular group, sponsored by the Newtown Presbyterian Church, serving the entire community including Lower Bucks County and the surrounding area

Job-seekers today face a far more competitive environment, complicated by the impact of increasingly complex and sophisticated technology, than ever before, But since our inception we've helped guide over 230 business and technical professionals and others from across the employment spectrum into satisfying new positions.

Our process is not proprietary. It consists of helping you understand and express your value to a new employer, focusing on the jobs and companies that interest you and match your skills, personal interests, and cultural fit, then using the power of networking to give you access to the hiring managers within those companies

Working with other job-seeker support groups, career coaches, state and local agencies, and others we provide you access to many resources to assist you in your job search.

So come and join us! We meet at the Newtown Presbyterian Church on the third Monday of every month, form 7:00 to 8:30 PM. There is no charge for our services. We just ask that you bring a canned good or non-perishable food item for the church's food pantry.
