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.

Upcoming Event:


An SCSC Zoom Meeting – Thursday, June 15 at 7:00-8:15 PM

Join us in an interactive workshop with NYC career coach and popular SCSC speaker Win Sheffield ( and explore how storytelling can be used as a strategic networking tool.  Says Win: “Storytelling goes beyond reciting your work history.  A person’s stories are what make her or him unique.  And that uniqueness extends to the career marketplace.  We’ll further explore this on Thursday.”  Participants in this session will learn how the simplest stories help them engage and connect with key audiences (friends, colleagues, interviewers).
