  It’s Soooo Different Now  

Brought to you by: 



Session 1: 8:00 AM – 9:05 AM
Topic: Your Personal Brand: Know Yourself. Make Your mark.
Make A Difference.

Presenter: Lisa Smith - Right Management

Topic Summary: 
We all have a personal brand that is formed and refined with every encounter we have with others around us.  The most effective professionals choose to actively manage their personal brand versus leave it to chance. In this session, you will have an opportunity to reflect on your personal brand as well as draft and practice a 60-second branding “commercial” that can be used in a variety of situations, including business networking events and job interviews.

9:05 AM – 9:30 AM

Session 2: 9:30 AM – 10:35 AM
Topic: Working With A Recruiter
Presenter: Mike Mueller – Signature Search

Topic Summary: Not all recruiters are the same! Learn what to expect and how to properly engage recruiters in your strategy moving forward.

10:35 AM - 11:00 AM

Session 3: 11:00 AM - 12:05 PM
Topic: Interviewing Skills
Presenter: Gina Glover Right Management

Topic Summary: Interviewing skills are not something we often think about until we find ourselves in an active job search. Yet these days, where corporate down-sizing and restructuring are terms that are just as prevalent as consulting and business development, we need to remember that brushing up on these skills even when we don't necessarily need them (yet) is simply good career management.

In this session, Gina Glover, a Career Management Consultant with Right Management, will provide insight into behavioral-based interviewing skills, share the top interview questions asked by employers today and review the best approach for responding to these types of questions. Additionally, attendees of this session will gain an understanding of pre-interview skills, appropriate etiquette for the interview and effective follow up techniques for after the interview has concluded. Prepare to be engaged and actively participating in this session. 


Optional Lunch: 12:05 – 1:00 PM

Michael Mueller
President – Signature Search

Mike's 360 view of the search and recruiting process comes from hands-on experience on both sides of the desk. He began his career in corporate human resources, then moved into sales and marketing before initiating his search career in 1987. With a focus on executive and management level positions in various industries, he has a market-leading completion rate. Companies served include private, private equity to Fortune 50 public organizations. Mike works closely with clients and candidates both nationally and internationally, leading Signature Search from the company headquarters in Appleton, Wisconsin with offices in Green Bay, WI and Raleigh, NC.

Using the knowledge he acquired both in corporate management and as President and COO of a successful retained search firm, Mike launched Signature Search in early 2000. Mike believes the only way to be an effective recruiting partner is to thoroughly understand the culture, personalities and business strategies that are unique to each organization. He invests significant time with clients to develop this knowledge, then uses it to attract and engage the most talented and qualified candidates. The company's mission reflects his personal philosophy - to provide the most responsive, highest quality search services in the industry. To Mike, this means working collaboratively with clients so all parties involved have ownership in the process and feel good about signing their names to the end results. Hence the company name.

Gina Glover

Career Management Consultant – Right Management

A candidate’s career search involves a plethora of tasks, many of which a candidate has not done in years or, in some cases, has never done before. These tasks include identifying strengths and transferrable skills, crafting a “stand out” resume, writing memorable cover letters, negotiating salary and benefits and evaluating offers.  In her role at Right Management, Gina assists candidates with all of these tasks and more including one of the more stress-inducing components of their job search – the interview. Gina assists candidates in the process of determining which questions are most likely to be asked in an interview based on the position’s description and works with candidates to develop responses that specifically demonstrate the candidate’s abilities and experiences.

Gina has her B.S. degree in Printing Management from Ferris State University and has led a diverse 20-year career in the Fox Valley including roles in sales, e-commerce management, SAP implementation, product development, and marketing communications. She has served on the boards of the Sales and Marketing Professionals of Northeast Wisconsin (SMPNEW), and the Fox Valley Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), and is currently the VP of Programs for Mid-Day Women’s Alliance, a member of the Regional Planning Committee of Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes as well as a Cadette Troop Leader. She is a member of NEW Appleton Toastmasters and MDWA Toastmasters and has just recently achieved her Advanced Communicator Gold award through Toastmasters International. Additionally, Gina started her own business in August 2014, Creative Connections of the Fox Valley, to provide marketing and sales support to small businesses and non-profit organizations in the area.
