Reminder:  for May only the chapter meeting takes place on the 4th Tuesday rather than the 3rd Tuesday of the month to accommodate people who want to attend the STC annual conference.

The results of the Chapter elections for 2007/8 will be presented at this meeting. We encourage all chapter members to vote between now and May 22nd using the link to the online election ballot that was sent to them.

Join us in celebrating emerging talent! Several graduating students from the Douglas College ‘Print Futures’ program will be exhibiting their portfolios between 6.30pm and 7pm.  Make sure you come along early to give feedback and get inspired.  We will also announce the winner of the annual STC Canada West Coast Julia Broderick scholarship.

The Topic
Have you ever interviewed for a job you wanted but didn’t get?  Chances are you didn’t achieve each of the critical steps needed to receive an offer.

As a follow-up to his informative and entertaining presentation on “The Top 10 Mistakes Writers Make when Looking for Work,” Jack Molisani will show how a portfolio is not just a sample of your work, it is a tool you can use to control an interview and achieve four specific objectives that result in a job offer.

The presentation includes what to put in a portfolio, how to get things to put in your portfolio, and most importantly, how to use your portfolio to ace a job interview.

Want (or need) a better job, contract or outsource project?  Don’t miss our May meeting!

The Presenter
Jack Molisani is the founder and president of ProSpring Technical Staffing: http://www.prospring.net

He also produces LavaCon: The Conference on Advanced Technical Communication and Project Management.

Jack will be raffling off a free entrance to the conference at the end of the evening, so bring a business card for the drawing!
