                                          Rick Gillis is a pioneer of 21st century job search. Rick has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The
                                          Houston Chronicle,,; has been heard on NPR and countless radio
                                          stations across the country; has appeared on television and hosted Rick Gillis Employment Radio on
                                          KFNC-FM, 97.5 in Houston.
                                          Rick has aggressively studied the practice of job seeking from the perspective of both the employer and
                                          employee. It is based on these observations that he has written his latest book
                                          “The Real Secret to Finding a Job? Make Me Money or Save Me Money!”
                                          Rick’s ‘claim to fame’ is his creation of the Pre-Resume™ (his one-two, short-form/long-form resume

                              AT THE 2010 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
                         The APICS International Conference is one of the premier
                         educational and training programs for any professional
                         organization. It can be overwhelming and confusing to first time
                         attendees, especially young adults and students. For this reason,
                         the Mentor Program is a valuable tool for both the mentor and

    This was my first time to volunteer and participate in this process. The results
    obtained by myself were as much a reward as the conference presentations. I was
    able to educate and support several students from the University of Houston APICS
    Student Chapter attending the conference for the first time. We discussed objectives,
    plans, opportunities, expectations and program selections. All insured a more
    rewarding and valuable use of the mentee‟s time at the conference. In addition, the
    relationships developed will carry on well after the conference.

    As a seasoned APICS member, it was a pleasure to provide support and guidance to
    the next generation of leaders in our country. We met several times at the
    presentations, luncheons, dinners, seminars and between sessions. It allowed
    personal interaction, explanation of events, introduction of other attendees and visits
    to the bookstore and the sponsors‟ booths.

    I gained a better appreciation of what is happening in our educational system and
    the plans of the students ready to graduate. This is a wonderful way to give back to
    society and support some wonderful individuals striving to improve their abilities to
    lead productive lives in Operations Management careers.

    I will be doing this again next year.
