After the holidays, it's time to put those New Year's resolutions into action. The New Year brings about new opportunities and change which makes it the perfect time to take the next big step in your career. Whether you're looking for an opportunity or you're considering a move from your current position, we want to make sure you're fully prepared for the job hunt of 2014. This month's special event will leave you charged and optimistic for the job searches and career advancements ahead.

On Monday, January 13th, Jobspring Partners, a professional recruitment company specializing in tech placements, will ready us for a New Year job search. The Jobspring team will present on job hunt best practices including how to approach your search, what to expect in interviews and steps to take during that process. You'll learn tips for a successful job hunt, see examples of effective resumes, and ultimately learn how to get the attention of potential employers. They'll also touch on women’s prospects including statistics on women in the workforce.

Following the presentation, Jobspring has offered personal 5-minute one-on-one consultations for expert career advice and questions with one of their recruiters. To sign up for a personal consultation, please answer YES when prompted during your registration for the event. Please note there are only 40 spots available for the consultations so be sure to reserve one if you want one. We will notify you of your time slot upon arrival at the event.

Don't miss this informative event which promises the hiring perspective that could make 2014 a big year in your career!

SYPA (Stuff You'll Probably Ask)

Why the $10 fee?

All monies collected go directly to bringing you a top tier experience with notable speakers each month. Some months we get help with sponsorship and others months we do not, so the small fee balances out over the year and ensures that the events can continue to grow. Food and refreshments are provided each month and vary based on the venue. Your $10 goes directly towards covering the costs of food, drinks, thank you gifts for our speakers, hosting of our web spaces and other costs incurred to run events. We are a non-profit group run by volunteer organizers and we do not make money through this group.
