There will be a morning networking meeting for HAPPEN members on Tuesday 15 December at the usual Mississauga location. The same morning there will be a meeting in Vancouver in celebration of the holiday season. Those will be the last HAPPEN planned meetings this year.

The regular phone and e-mail communication channels will remain open throughout the holiday period as usual.

The first meetings of the New Year will be held on Tuesday 5 January 2010.

In the meantime interviews are being conducted and our members are being hired. If you are in job search mode, you are not on vacation, anymore than you would be if you were employed by some one other than yourself.

Active members have been asked to assist in evaluating the new HAPPEN beta test website. Thank you for the feedback. There are several adjustments that need to be made, which has delayed the changeover from the current site.

Please be assured the HAPPEN website continues to operate. Profiles are on display and are being searched by employers & recruiters. New jobs are being posted and expired jobs removed under the direction of Greg Brown.

The exclusive Pivotal seminars for new HAPPEN members are scheduled for the New Year. If you have not received an invitation please use the address on the Pivotal page on the website to enroll.

Hone your 30-second infomercial for the many networking opportunities this season provides. Let all your family and friends know that you are in transition between employers and re available to make your experience and talents available to meet your next employers need. Every body is in a more helpful mood at this time of year; make sure you do your part. Your friends may not realize how they can help you unless you let them know what you are seeking.
