    What a year 2021 was!
    While we saw some riveting headlines come out of 2021, like the "Gorilla Glue Girl", all of the hype surrounding "The Gamestop Goldrush" and of course the "Harry & Meghan" drama, nothing quite seemed to match "The Great Resignation of 2021". No industry was "safe" as employees started making career changes across the country.  While you may not have taken the leap in 2021, the headlines alone have certainly made some think about the next steps in their professional development and careers.
    One of the top reasons that people delay looking for and applying to new opportunities is the concern that their LinkedIN profiles and resumes aren't up to snuff.

    Welp – it's 2022, the year of getting it done – so let's cross that off your list!

    Join the members of WIIM ( Women in Information Management ) & your peers in the AIIM community for a special Resume Workshop hosted by AIIM+ member, Sandra Bates. Sandra will take us through the importance of resume building, and some of the major things you may want to keep in mind when getting that resume polished and up to date. 
    Join us Thursday, February 10th from 1:00 – 2:00 (EST) for tips, tricks, no-nos and oh-yes's of building a resume to highlight your professional achievements and stand out to future employers. It never hurts to have your resume ready to go when that perfect opportunity pops up!
    We hope to see you there!
