Newtown Career Networking Group

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

(networking starts at 6:45 PM)

Next Meeting is May 20, 2024


Monday, May 20th, is our next meeting of the Newtown Career Networking Group (NCNG). This is an opportunity for you to share your concerns, questions, challenges, and successes. Our guest speaker this month is Ed Samuel, he will be presenting “Networking Gone Wrong”. The following is a sneak preview of his presentation…



 "We all love networking when it comes to a job search. We know it’s mission-critical, and we work really hard at it. But mistakes in networking can slow the job search process down and, in some cases, prevent you from landing a job and/or making the job search far less efficient. We need to be careful that we don't dump networking in a big pot, stir it and dump it out and say, "It's all good." Networking can Go Wrong."


"Please join Ed Samuel, who is not only a Career Coach but a Power Networker/Rainmaker. He has ~27,110+ first connections on LinkedIn and more on his other social media platforms. More importantly, what he teaches about networking has helped countless small business owners and 900+ others optimize their career."

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.
