SNEC PM Conference & Workshops 2009 - Overview


An event that will reignite your passion for project management and give you the power to move forward in your career!

Don’t forget to bring your updated resume to this year’s SNEC PM Conference!
The Connecticut Department of Labor will be joining our conference this year and support a resume critique on a first come, first serve basis. The team will be available in the sponsor area and provide services between 11:00am and 1:30pm.

We anticipate interest in this service and will be evaluating the demand for future review sessions during special chapter meetings or events. Please provide your feedback and get your resume reviewed!

Feedback from participants at job fairs and familiar with the DOL’s service state: “It sounds like a great event (SNEC Conference)... The resume writers are really wonderful -- they have helped a lot of people improve their opportunities to find a job with a more targeted resume”.


This year, the SNEC-PMI PM Conference team is proud to announce that along with our popular Project Management Professional Development day on Friday, May 1st, 2009 we will also be offering half-day Workshops on Thursday, April 30th, 2009.   This is in direct response to past attendees who asked for opportunities to pursue more in-depth learning on a selection of topics.
