One important key to success is self-confidence.  An important key to self-confidence is preparation. - Arthur Ashe

Our Background

The St. Catherine’s Support Circle was formed in early 2009 to support people seeking jobs in the challenging economic environment that existed then. The group continues to encourage participation by both job seekers and those interested in providing their advice and support.

The SCSC steering committee includes professionals who have experience in diverse areas including human resources, executive search, career coaching, clinical career counseling, general management, education, marketing, public relations, finance, accounting and IT.  If you have similar experience, and would be interested in joining your fellow professionals on the committee, we welcome you to attend one of our monthly SCSC meetings to speak to one of our steering committee members.
