I am proud to serve as the #HAPPO champion here in the Phoenix area. HAPPO was started by fellow communicators Arik Hanson and Valerie Simon in 2010 when many public relations and marketing communications professionals were finding themselves downsized, rightsized or basically let go from jobs.
Fortunately, many of those individuals are back on payrolls and the idea of HAPPO has evolved to include job-seekers of all levels.
Thursday, Dec. 15, noon CT (that’s 11 a.m. local time) HAPPO’s live Twitter chat will be on the subject of resumes. Timing is pretty good, what with the winter class of college graduates about to start filling up our in-boxes with query letters.
If you are looking for a job and need some help with your resume, follow #HAPPO to hear some helpful hints from professionals in the field responsible for hiring talent and network with other communicators. And if you’ve got some advice on resumes or other job-seeking tips, join us as well. The more the merrier.
And in advance of the chat, here are a few of my helpful hints, what else would you add?
