I cannot emphasize that deadline strongly enough. Understand that late applications cannot be accepted since the process for approval requires independent evaluations by each Board member, followed by a joint decision during the mid-year meeting that closely follows the application deadline. By early June, we plan to have that revised Constitution available to the membership so that we can vote on it during the Business Meeting in Birmingham.
Also, one more reminder that while in Shanghai, the Board will conduct initial reviews of applications to host upcoming annual TIAFT conferences. If you are interested in submitting an application, please let me know as soon as possible. Have fun at them. No, seriously… really?!?!
Time for some more numbers.
Sometimes You Get What You Want by Meredith Gary
There were 56 individual recruiters, HR personnel and hiring managers from a whole bunch of different companies that had told us they were coming as of the day before the event. We made plans for them. We knew we had about a dozen smaller tables, hightops throughout the room, and a few private rooms to play around with, and we adapted accordingly.
Then, just like with the job seekers…it started happening. Again…what are we going to say? There are many things that I would have liked to have said, I assure you.
Sixty seven. And so, yep, we ran out of tables pretty quickly. We ran out of everything pretty quickly…except job seekers, that is. There were plenty of those to go around, and they were all there looking to talk with you…whether you were at a table, in one of the private rooms, sitting at the bar, or standing on your head by the bathroom — they came to find jobs.
So, you might want an event that has dedicated space for you, or lets you setup a booth, or lets you have a quieter, more professional environment…and you can get that by paying for ads in newspapers or on Monster and inviting people into your office.
