#GPTWConf A Two Thumbs Up Experience 

I recently went down to the Bayou, joining 1,100 HR practitioners and leaders in downtown New Orleans for the 11th Annual Great Places to Work Conference.  It made sense that this super event was held in the Super Dome, because, in my opinion at least,…


My Time as a Job Seeker

Posted on March 26, 2014 at 5:30pm 16 Comments

Let me just start with the simple truth that looking for the next gig sucks! And that is a sad truth coming from someone who enjoys change and new challenges. I believe it doesn't matter whether you are an “active” passive candidate (defined as I've got a job but am sort of looking), laid-off, fired or…

Anna, thanks I'll try to catch that webinar! I see you're located in NH. I've just created a new group in here for member located in New England.
I'd like to invite you to join, and ask that you extend this invite to any others that you know are from the area.

Best Regards,

Thank you for the prompt response. I will seek you out and introduce myself. Really looking forward to my first Kennedy experience. I have attended and spoken at SourceCon and ERE. Very interested in seeing what the flavor will be at Kennedy. Off to a good start.

Hi Anna,

Slouch asked me to reach out to you here.

I am a panelist on Monday w Gerry Crispin "Where the Corporate Sourcing Function is Headed: Expert Views from the Trenches".

Coming in Sunday and really interested in attending the two Linkedin Sessions. Presenting on that to the Recruiting Strategies SVP team this Wed at her request today.

Came you provide any information on how I can register, am I allowed to attend given I am a panelist, can you help me get in. I am the lead Internet Researcher at Wachovia (being acquired by Wells) and this is my cup of tea.

Best regards,

Good morning Jason and good morning to everyone else out there!
Hope you had a safe trip back, Jason, it was great having you here in New Hampshire visiting the Kennedy Team. Just want to share with you that the Recruiting Conference agenda has been completed and the website is up . As you can see we have a great line-up of presenters and we are looking forward to have you host the lounge with your friends in Orlando. - Anna
