For Anyone In Transition
You should know that Richmond SHRM offers assistance

Are you currently in between jobs?  If so, we have a group for you! PACE Job Teams meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month (no meeting in July).

This group is based on the Lee Hecht Harrison Job Search Work Team model.  The team is designed to support the job seeker through peer networking and increased productivity in the job search. Here's what folks are saying:

"It was through this group that I found my current position which I love.  Thanks Kristi (our fearless leader) for presenting the opportunity and being a great advocate for my skills as well as character."

The PACE group was very instrumental in helping me land my current position.  I started attending the group as I was making a career change.  The group was not only a wealth of knowledge (I found my mentor there), but is was also a great sounding board on how to effectively communicate what I wanted and how my past experiences would bring value to this new world I was looking to embark on."

Come join us to help increase your productivity and job search success!

There is no cost to participate; however, registration is required. The next meeting is scheduled for August 8 from 10:00 am - 11:00 am at Lee Hecht Harrsion. 
Can't make the August 8 meeting?  No worries, just register for any one of several PACE meetings here.
