This is a joint meeting with the Project Management Institute (PMI) and is being held on Tuesday, November 19th. The PMI group is a fun group to network with and we look forward to having our membership connect with their professional organization.

Main Activities:

1. Get your resume reviewed by a resume reviewer.  Show up early to get on the list.  

2. Come dressed for a free professional head shot photo taken by one of the two photographers hired for the first half of the evening.  These digital headshot pictures will be perfect to update for your linked In profile picture.

3. Listen to the panel of hiring managers and resume authors to give you tips for your linked In and resume profile.  There will also be time for Q&A.


Professional Resume Reviewers

You will have an opportunity at the beginning of the evening to meet a resume expert and/or recruiter to go over your resume. This year, we are adding more resume reviewers due to higher participation with a joint meeting with PMI. Take this opportunity to have an experienced professional look over your resume and offer tips to help advance your career.

Enrique Ruiz - WayFair   Sourcer

Enrique is just a kid from Mesa Arizona. In his youth he helped the punk boys connect with the sweet girl they had no idea how to talk to. He was recruiting. He grew up in a humble family taught the value of hard work and respect. He was kinda smart, but mostly savvy and got accepted to George Fox University.  He landed an internship, met a gal and put a ring on it. Shortly after he landed a role working as a recruiter for a large staffing firm. He again tapped into his natural gift of connecting people except this time he got paid for it. He learned that he had a knack for recruiting. He had always been connecting dots/people. He spent some time at a large shoe company. He now works for a prominent online retail company. He also started his own company Leadership Matters Coaching where he helps individuals with career support.
