On February 27th, I had the pleasure of moderating an amazing panel of professionals
for a SHRM JAX event. The panelist were some of the
best picks to represent the
topic of: From A Student To A Professional.
The panelists were:
- Dr. Christina Echeverry -Director of Webster University
- Shawna Grant - Founder and CEO of Grant Consulting JAX
- Lynn Higgison - Workforce Development Department Manager at Charities in January
- David Patten - Human Resources Specialist at City of Jacksonville
For this event I chose to construct the questions on a chronological order to ones professional path. We covered multiple topics on this event such as:
Dos and don'ts before you even apply for a job interview.
Social media effect on your recruitment.
Getting ready for in interview.
Building a resume.
Preparing questions for your hiring manager.
How to online search the position that you want?
Should you or should you not negotiate your salary when you do not have sufficient experience.
Negotiating salary and benefits.
Follow up steps after an interview.
Creating a network and connecting with others in your community.
SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) JAX had done such an amazing job of getting the right panelists together, and I was absolutely honored moderating this event.
Here are some pictures form the event.
