Baseball and Networking is the New American Pastime

The economy is still a buyers market for hiring companies. In between interviews and rejections, baseball is still the favorite past time in the United States. With organizations that helped many land jobs, two well known networking umpires join forces to give their members a chance to meet recruiters during Somerset Patriots baseball game.

New York, NY August 6, 2010 -- The buzz abounds about networking with friends and business associates to jump start careers and get job interviews.  By the same token, nothing puts the economic blues on hold when Americans get together to watch a baseball game.  On August 29, 2010 the Somerset Patriots are hosting a pregame career networking event. Organized by Frank Kovacs, founder of The Breakfast Club NJ, in association with Empowering Today's Professionals, founded by Rod Colon, job seekers will be able to meet hiring recruiters.

With gates opening at 2:00PM this career networking event will take place on the concourse of the TD Bank Ballpark, home of the Somerset Patriots, located at 860 East Main Street, Bridgewater, NJ.  Then all attendees can enjoy a Somerset Patriots game in upper box seats.  Patrick McVerry, General Manager with the Somerset Patriots said, "Working with The Breakfast Club NJ we are glad to host this event with a specially discounted price of $7 per ticket. This will be a very affordable family day out for both networking and watching our team play against the Maryland Blue Crabs."  Nissan USA will be giving away camouflage Patriots hats to the first 2,000 Fans in attendance.  Tickets can be purchased by calling Ken Greco at (908)252-0700 X223.

"The Breakfast Club NJ (http://www.thebreakfastclubnj.com) started simply by inviting some friends who were in transition, post 9/11, to breakfast.  Members learn about the process and methodology around a job search.  We have honed this message over the years to help those in transition with career management needs" states Founder, Frank Kovacs

In almost 10 years The Breakfast Club NJ (TBCNJ) has blossomed to now over 3,000 members and Empowering Today's Professionals (ETP) track record in helping hundreds land jobs in the last year alone.  Frank Kovacs and Rod Colon, along with other individuals in other networking groups have helped thousands of individuals find jobs. Some of the supporting networking groups include TENG, FENG, MENG, NJSEG, PSENG, MIS NETWORK ASSOCIATION, SPNG, CNG.

"Partnering with Frank Kovacs and The Breakfast Club NJ, Empowering Today's Professionals is looking forward to this August 29, 2010 event as an awesome opportunity for many career professionals in transition to network with recruiters and develop new reciprocal business relationships" says Rod Colon, ETP Founder and author of Win the Race for 21st Century Jobs.


It is expected to be a good turn out for people in transition, with other professionals interested in career management and several networking groups from the New York / New Jersey area are expected to attend. Area groups leaders will also come together for a very exciting, first of it's kind, day at the Somerset Patriots ballpark.   This is not just an ordinary day to only enjoy a great day at Americas Favorite Pastime, but also bring their resumes and business cards and mingle with other networkers to connect with some of the best recruiters in the industry.

Who would of thought two guys, like Frank Kovacs and Rod Colon, could make such huge strides with helping so many people by sharing knowledge gained over 10 years of volunteering their time.  Despite corporate downsizings and tough economic times Frank and Rod have successfully made achievements for their part in putting America back to work.
