IIDA SoCal recognizes that the many changes in the industry over the past few months have put many of our friends and colleagues into ‘job search’ mode.
To help navigate this changing time, we will be hosting a series of short Instagram Live sessions on various topics to help inform and support everyone in their journey. We’re calling the series:
S.P.F. 15 – Strengthen. Promote. Flourish
This series will run Oct. – Dec. 2021 with more events planned for 2021. Each event will be 15-30 minutes.
We’re kicking off the first presentation with ‘Resume Tips/Tricks’ for Industry folks on Oct. 14, 2020 at 12 Noon on our Instagram channel – @IIDA SoCal
Deborah Allen, Founder, Searchwise Consultants
Deborah Allen founded Searchwise Consultants for the purpose of refining the art of recruiting, because what Allen experienced was an industry abundant in talent but often poorly understood. As an executive in the contract furniture industry, Allen endured many years of barely qualified candidates in her search to fill vital positions. Frustrated with conventional methods, she began to formulate a more sophisticated understanding of the search process – a new dynamic that allowed for greater precision. Now celebrating 20 years, and always interested in the human condition in all its glorious and sometimes disheartening aspects, Allen has come realize a great many things about basic human needs, and the psychology that drives even the simplest acts. Her personal curiosity about the nature of human existence, from prehistoric to space age wonders, is what makes her ideally suited to the task of finding the right person for a job opening.
This event is free for all.
