Job Hunt, IDP, ARE Study Support Group

I am proposing another Job hunt IDP ARE Support Group. Last month we had two recruiters from Aroteck and they really contributed to the event, thank you Sara and David!

4:30-6:30 Job hunters

6:30 – 7:30 ARE IDP

7:30- 9:00 whatever we need to cover

On the ARE Front I have some info on the librarians at the Chicago public library, they have money set aside for new ARE study books so we need to compile a list for them, they are most eager to help out. I also went through the process of getting cleared to take the exams, we can discuss the requirements and fees and how long it may take for things to get processed.

On the Job hunt front we can spend some more time to review resumes and portfolios, I also have The Map of Chicago firms to share have Google Earth on your computer before arriving at the event to get the locations address and other info on hundreds of Chicago area firms.

Also On the job hunt front please bring multiple copies of your resumes, we may have more recruiters stopping by.

The other thing to discuss and possibly add to our list of things to do is to organize a comprehensive portfolio review similar to the one organized in November of last year, if you want to help with this let me know.

Our grand tour of Coffee houses in Chicago continues with Ready Coffee 1562 N Milwaukee Ave. near Myopic books close to the Damen Blue Line Stop. We will be in the back gallery room.

Finally our job hunt club has gotten the attention of the author of the book Cracking the Hidden Job Market, Donald Asher. would we be interested in having him visit or conference call with us as a group sometime in the future?

I will be recruiting some professionals to help out if we have a good number of folks RSVP in advance.

I hope to see you there
