Human Resources In Transition

Are you a HR Professional In Transition?

We realize that being in transition can be a difficult time. It is not easy to know what steps to take to secure a position for which you are qualified. Thus, we have created PIHRA Burbank/Glendale’s HR Professionals In-Transition Networking Program.

Our Mission:

To help Burbank/Glendale area Human Resources Professionals find employment and to act as a professional resource to each other.

Please join us if you are a HR professional in transition, or employed but seeking a different opportunity. We will meet once a month to network, discuss and share job leads, ideas for a structured job search, resume reviews, practice 60 second elevator speech, interviewing skills, etc.

We also invite expert guest speakers to share their knowledge and ideas to help the group with continuous learning of various HR topics and useful tips about the job search.

There is no cost to join this professional networking group. The only ‘rule’ of participation is to be discrete about other members’ job search. For more information about our program please email us at pihraburbankmembership@gmail.com or visit us at our Facebook Group.
