Join us at our next ExecuNet Networking Meeting at Webster University in Irvine on 4/19!

Keynote Presentation

Emerging Employment Trends and Forecasts: 2018-2020

Guest Speaker: Mark James, President – Hire Consulting Services

The coming labor shortage is already here. This presentation will address the following questions: How will companies compete in a very tight workforce for good talent? Who will be the benefactors? How will this affect your current job search strategy? What are your “new” options at the crossroads of your executive career? There is an old saying: “There are two types of knowledge: One is know what you need? The other is know how to find it?” Attend the next ExecuNet Meeting and discover the trends that are re-shaping the executive job search landscape!
