1997, thousands of job seekers have learned from The LittonGroup how
to win job offers. Professional job seekers representing dozens of
industries have discovered that being the most prepared, passionate
and qualified candidate (PPQ) are the traits to win a job. Dozens of
corporations have used The LittonGroup to recruit candidates or
provide outplacement services using the wwWoW!
methodology. What started out as a volunteer effort to help a few people
has turned into a methodology that has helped thousands.
14 years of successful corporate sales management experience The
LittonGroup reinvented the job interview
for job seekers so they can differentiate themselves and get what they
are qualified for. The LittonGroup has
succeeded by teaching professionals in-transition the most dynamic outplacement
methods available anywhere today.
LittonGroup believes that the interview is a sales call - no matter what profession
you are in. We stumbled on the fact that practically every interview
product has been written by people who had absolutely no professional sales
or sales management experience. This motivated us to spend literally
thousands of hours packaging, testing and refining sales presentation
methods so job seekers everywhere could "Win
hiring managers find the job interview to be just a stale
"Q&A" session. Anyone can memorize questions and answers!
They want to be blown away!
successfully "wow'ed" hiring managers to win jobs himself,
Jay Litton, originally founded The LittonGroup to teach others.
Now that the LittonGroup has expanded beyond that original vision it is
managed by Donna Litton. The
LittonGroup can dramatically change the way you interview whether you are an
employer or a job seeker.
Litton continues to lead one of the largest job networking groups in the State of Georgia
with over 120 employed volunteers in which many participate in a program
called Industry Guides at www.RUMCjobnetworking.com.
They donate their time to help over one hundred
job seekers network in their industry or company every 2 weeks. Jay also
donates his time helping other churches learn how to set up their own
volunteer "Industry Guide" job networking ministry.

Alpharetta-Roswell Revue & News, May 16-20, 2002
About 35 people take their seats in a Roswell United Methodist Church
meeting room - white, black, men, women, young and old - all with the
same quest. They want to find a career, not just a job.
a corporate hiring manager with 14 years experience leads the session.
He knows what hiring managers are looking for and how to impress them.
He passes along these tips and also suggests some recommended reading,
other job networking locations and Web sites that list jobs. "More
than 80 percent of all jobs out there are unadvertised." Litton
tells his group. "You need to meet people and get contacts."
One of the exercises Litton takes people through is the "elevator
pitch" and the "sound bite." The elevator pitch is that
20 second summary you might give someone about what you do and what
you are looking for. The sound bite is what Litton calls a quick introduction
that will make the other person curious about you. "Whether it
is at a cocktail party or the job interview itself, a job-seeker is
ahead of the game if the other person wants to know about you."

Even the members who don't yet have jobs are at least landing interviews.

Christian Advocate, April 15, 2002
Dozens, maybe hundreds, of out-of-work metro Atlantans are recovering
from job loss, thanks to Roswell United Methodist Church's decade-old
job networking ministry. "In the middle of 2000, two or three people
showed up at our meetings, but we thought, "if we're helping a
few people then it's still a worthy cause," said program coordinator
Jay Litton. "Last May our average was 30. Last November it rose
to 40 people. By January the numbers were in the 60s. A couple of weeks
ago it hit 107," said Litton.
"When someone's out of work, it affects family, friends, not to
mention themselves, and we want to give them skills to cope with that
and get back on their feet," he said. "Today reading about
a job in the paper and interviewing isn't getting the results of the
past. A majority of jobs come through networking," continued
"We let them know what to do to be successful at networking."

for work. And he encourages the community to provide an ear and suggestions,
whenever possible. One of the great advantages of being associated with
Rotary is the Networking opportunities. While we may know nothing about
the type of work someone is looking for, we may know people who do.
