Monday Morning Speaker:  

RESUMES THAT LAND IN THE “A” PILE with Shira Harrington


What to Expect:

How do you stand out from the hundreds of resumes that are all clamoring for the attention of a busy, stressed-out recruiter? How do you demonstrate that the job you have applied for both satisfies their requirements for a qualified, motivated employee and your requirements for a fulfilling career? The key is first to know yourself – how your passion and your purpose are reflected by those areas in which you are highly qualified AND highly motivated.


This robust workshop will help you discover your true career desires and fashion a powerful resume that clearly states where you are going in your career…not just where you’ve been. Seasoned executive recruiter and career consultant, Shira Harrington, Founder & President of Purposeful Hire, will show you that in every hire there IS a purpose.

BIO:

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.
Shira earned a Masters degree in Public Relations with a focus on employee communications from the University of Maryland at College Park.

Plan to join us after the meeting for networking.  Many of us carry our conversations to lunch at the nearby Brookings Institution.

Attire is business casual, recruiters are often present, so we ask all Monday Speaker attendees to contribute to the professional standards and objectives of this important networking meeting.

Doors open at 9:00 for networking and the program starts promptly at 10:00.
