Dressing for Success has been an acknowledged axiom of the job search process for many years. Last week in Markham Terry Szwec used the expression 'Dress to Impress' during his presentation. This is possibly more apt, and is a reminder to all of us that we are making an impression all the time.

The HAPPEN morning networking meetings do have a dress code, which is formal business dress. We never know who may come to a meeting, both employers and recruiters are made welcome.

Although most attendees are seeking new employment themselves, they will connect you with their contacts providing you have made a first impression that is acceptable. If you don't appear to care how you appear, it might be concluded that you may not care about your next employers concerns.

During career transition you are always on stage, you never know who you may meet and make the first impression. Be ready with your infomercial, let everybody you meet know that you are available for a new employment position.

We continue to take in registrations to be included in the Spring Issue of Candidate Profiles which will be mailed to over 500 employers & recruiters at the beginning of May. Register on the website or at a meeting. Please check that your profile is on display on the website in the format that you wish to have distributed.

The new site has many new features, check them out and update your Profile so recruiters/employers can find you faster.
