Hello! This blog is a way for the members of the KIT List (www.KITlist.org) job opportunities community to share experiences and knowledge to help each other in job search or in finding and hiring top people…and other job seekers and hiring professionals are welcome, too! Click here to join the KIT List.
Sue Connelly founded the KIT List in 1997 to “Keep In Touch” with her friends and clients at Silicon Graphics (SGI). It rapidly morphed into a job opportunities email list as Sue reached out to her network to help her SGI friends find jobs after major layoffs started with the company. Sue is not a recruiter or HR person, she is a marketing consultant who describes herself as “the accidental tourist on the Internet” when the list rapidly grew by simply word of mouth, and now has over 71,000 members!
The mission and spirit of the KIT List is to “Help Great People Find Great Jobs” and to find ways to connect people who are in the job search mode, to make the process less solitary, and share effective job search tips and techniques so that each person can find work that they’ll love. The KIT list serves not only the job seekers, but also the recruiters and human resources professionals who want to connect, share best practices and have a forum for tapping into the deep expertise within the KIT List community.
Sue’s “real” job is as a marketing communications consultant where she helps companies connect with their customers in ways that create loyal customers…and generate revenue (a good thing in this economy!). She also has a passion for sharing what she has learned working with some of the great companies in the Silicon Valley by teaching marketing best practices seminars to companies and universities to raise the bar of marketing expertise.
