The Employment Networking Group (ENG) - twice a month on Mondays
The Toronto Chapter - HRPA holds twice monthly Employment Networking Group (ENG) sessions for members in transition. On Mondays when the sessions are held, there are two meetings - one from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM for senior members in transition (10+ years of experience) and the second meeting from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM for junior to intermediate members (0-9 years of experience). Meetings are facilitated by Arlene Yam Fritz.
If you are in career transition, not currently employed and actively searching for work, you might find these sessions useful.
