    Career Transition Support- Summer 2021 (free service for members!)

    *Find Zoom Link below

    As a HR community we would like to support each other when anyone in our HR community is facing unemployment or underemployment, by bringing together community leaders and job seekers to participate in weekly meetings that offer resources, inspiration and most importantly ~ Community Support. 

    Each session will focus on different topics that are vital to your career search.  We will also discuss your weekly progress and ways we can support each other as a group.  At the end of this four week series you will be inspired and prepared to take your job search to the next level!

    We hope you can attend all four sessions, but understand scheduling might be tricky at this time. Therefore, we welcome you to attend as many sessions as your schedule allows.
