March 17, 2015 – Versique will host several Career Planning Seminars for former Target employees on Thursday, March 26. The hour-long seminars will help displaced Target employees determine what makes them marketable, identify how they might approach the next steps in their careers, and provide opportunities for resume review and networking.
Versique’s Practice Director of CPG (consumer packaged goods), Jennifer Britton, will lead the seminars. Britton has almost two decades of CPG experience, including roles as vice president of business development at DoTopia and NAM (national account manager) at Colgate Palmolive. She worked with Fortune 500 companies calling on Target for many years prior to joining Versique’s team as an executive recruiter and the leader of the firm’s CPG division.
“The individuals who have been displaced by Target’s recent layoffs are high-caliber talent and have been trained by the best,” said Jennifer Britton. “We will help provide them with the resources they need to launch into their next career opportunities.”
Britton will speak on the state of the marketplace, offer tips for where to begin networking, provide insight about the hidden job market, and will also provide information about companies that are currently hiring people such as the individuals displaced from Target.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, network, and share their resume with Versique’s executive recruiting team, which will include individuals from Versique’s eight practice areas: IT (information technology), HR (human resources), digital marketing, engineering and operations, finance and accounting, sales, CPG, and executive retained search.
The seminars are free of charge and are open to all former Target employees who have been affected by layoffs. The seminars will be held at Versique’s offices near West End (6564 Wayzata Blvd., Suite 970, Minneapolis, MN 55426).
To attend, individuals must register.
