TYPICAL MEETING AGENDA

Chapter meetings typically include activit ies such as:

        Guest S peaker – who makes a presentation on a career related topic. Recent topics have included Mid-career Retooling, Job Search Organizing, Time
         Management, and Listening Skills. Our speakers are experts in their fields, and many are widely-recognized lecturers, consultants, and authors. Hearing them
         provides an education that isn't available anywhere else at any price.
        Networking – in a focus group with other PAPEN members. This includes practicing the personal presentation known as the "two minute drill"; where members
         describe themselves, their professional accomplishments, and the kind of work they are seeking. The drill is part of your personal advertising campaign, and is a
         presentation typically made in a networking interview. A good one will succeed in creating specific images in the mind of listeners, which will increase their
         interest in helping you with your job search. When you practice your drill at a meeting, other members can crit ique it and offer constructive advice.
        Review of J ob Leads – received recently fro m local emp loyers or recru iters. There is also time fo r discussing information in the PAPEN bulletins. Each bullet in is
         loaded with excellent information such as networking tips, job search tips, upcoming chapter schedules, member success stories and contacts within the
         organization as well as in related organizations.
