PMI Silicon Valley Job Search Group
“Success in Search”
This group is established to provide job search support for Silicon Valley project management professionals. It is sponsored by the Silicon Valley chapter of the Project Management Institute - PMI (www.pmisv.org) to help our members in transition improve their probability of landing a future job.
a) The skills and tools necessary for successful personal marketing and job search
One of the challenges people in transition face is maintaining their levels of energy and focus during what can be an arduous search process. The intent of this group is to provide the mutual support that we all need when we face these situations in our lives.
We use a Yahoo! group (PMISV_JOB_SEARCH_GROUP) to post information about our meetings, companion PMI chapter events, as well as leads and suggestions that the members develop in their search endeavors.
