Interviews that Land the Offer

with SHIRA HARRINGTON

The Third of a 4-part summer series with Shira Harrington at 40Plus.


What to Expect:

In this economy, employers are looking for a “purple squirrel” candidate to fill their job openings…how many purple squirrels do you know?!

In other words, they want someone who will be able to slide into the job with minimal ramp up time and make an immediate contribution. 

So, how can you stand out from the other “squirrel” candidates in the short length of an interview – or should you just paint yourself purple?  

In this session, learn how to set yourself apart by demonstrating how hiring you will help the employer achieve their business goals. And no trip to McCormick paint required. 



About The Speaker

Shira Harrington


Shira Harrington, CPC, began her recruiting career in 1994 developing a search practice within the association industry and the human resources community. To enhance her expertise in association management search, she is an active volunteer leader in ASAE and The Center for Association Leadership (the American Society for Association Executives) and facilitates an executive peer roundtable entitled SAFE (Small Association Forum for Executives) which provides a forum for best practice sharing among small staff association executives.

In addition, Shira plays an active role in the Washington, DC metropolitan human resources community. She has been the Vice President of Programs for the Human Resources Association of the National Capital Area; she is Programs Chair for the Human Resources Leadership Forum and she runs a monthly brown bag lunch for HR professionals in the nonprofit and association sectors.

Shira also is a consultant and presenter on managing the multigenerational workforce. As a subject matter expert, she brings her extensive research and her unique, ‘real world’ perspective of the world at work to bridge the perceived gaps between the generations and prepare executives for the coming labor shortage. Differences in work ethic, life values, work-life expectations, teamwork, communication styles and relationship to authority are just some of the challenges facing employees of each generation.  Moreover, as Baby Boomers prepare to retire, employers are likely to be short-handed unless succession planning begins now.

Shira has presented her generational findings to both human resources audiences as well as to staff of every level. Speaking engagements have included: Adhesive and Sealant Council, America’s Promise Alliance, American Association of Community Colleges, American Chamber of Commerce Executives, American Payroll Association, Baltimore-Washington Chamber of Commerce, Center for Nonprofit Studies, Council for Advancement and Support of Education, DC Courts, Dulles SHRM, Finance and Administration Roundtable, General Investment, Human Resources Association of the National Capital Area (DC SHRM), Logos College, National Association of African Americans in Human Resources, National Association of Funeral Directors, National Wildlife Federation, Performance Institute, Ritz Carlton, and Windsor Property Management.

Shira has been published in the monthly magazine of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, quoted in Federal Computer Weekly, profiled in the Washington Business Journal, interviewed in Bottom Line Briefing and is a contributing author to a new book, Motivating the Millennial Knowledge Worker.
