Jersey Shore Networking Group History

Thomas E. Kenny, Jersey Networking Group Founder

Empowering Today's Professionals (ETP) was founded by CEO, Rod Colon.  After graduating from ETP's job search and career management educational training programs,  in 2008 Tom Kenny pioneered  the Jersey Shore Networking Group (JSNG) located in Tom's River.  As a result of his outstanding accomplishment in developing the JSNG, Tom was awarded the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award by the ETP executive committee in 2009.

Following the adage "each one teach one", ETP members Michele Battista and Peter Hansen took Tom Kenny's lead and started another Jersey Shore Networking Group in Manalapan, NJ.  This expansion was also necessary, as the economy has greatly impacted the job market for many people in the Jersey Shore area.  In addition to being a JSNG leader, Michele also takes photos at the training sessions.

With the aggressive expansion of meeting attendees to monthly career management and job search training sessions, Tom, Michele and Peter were inducted into the membership Who's Who Hall of Fame by the ETP executive committee in 2010.  "JSNG has truly been an effective, action oriented leadership team in contributing to their "community at large" states Carl E. Reid, Chief Operations Officer of Empowering Today's Professionals.
