Transition Support Group

The Transition Support Group meets each month from September through November, and February through June, from 4:00-5:00 pm, just prior to the chapter’s dinner meeting at Brooklake Country Club. The goals of the support group are to offer job search ideas and advice, networking contacts, and to help improve a candidate’s job search productivity.

Support Topic Examples: 
· Resume Writing and Cover Letters - writing a powerful resume that attracts employers and invites interviews. Write a cover letter that sells you to the employer.
· Direct Job Search Techniques - job boards, LinkedIn, working with recruiters, and accessing the hiring manager.
· Indirect Job Search Techniques - basic and advanced networking strategies and techniques to broadcast your availability.
· Interviewing and Negotiations - how to cultivate an offer, negotiate an offer, and close a search to be ready for next time.

Registration, separate from the dinner meeting, is required for this service.
To register for a Transition Support Group meeting, send an email to MC SHRM President, Connie Ward, PHR, SHRM-CP by 3 pm of the DAY BEFORE the monthly meeting. Failure to register may result in cancellation of that meeting due to lack of attendance.

Speed Recruiting

How can Speed Recruiting be of help to you?

Are you a recruiter trying to fill an HR vacancy?  Or are you someone who is currently in transition, or looking for the next career move within HR?  The Morris County SHRM Chapter would like to help you by offering Speed Recruiting.  

What is Speed Recruiting?  It’s a program designed to connect HR Recruiters to candidates within our Chapter.   During the registration period (5-6pm) prior to the monthly dinner meeting, we will set up tables where recruiters and candidates can meet to briefly discuss opportunities and experience.  

This is a great opportunity for both parties to really make the most of the skills and experience here within the Morris County SHRM Chapter.  If you are interested in finding out more details about the program, or would like to participate in our next scheduled Speed Recruiting Event, keep your eyes on our website and be sure to register!
