FENG-stivus for the Rest of Us

We are going out on a Holiday Tree Limb for our last Chicagoland FENG Zeeting of the year that will be divvied up into four parts.

• Navigating the new FENG website – our own Chicago co-chair, Jerry Scherer, will explicitly walk you through what works best for him in terms of his search efforts on this valuable resource; his goal is the have you singing festive songs during the Holidays!

• Insights on the current job market search for senior-level executives going into what we all hope will be a better New Year than this one as per Kevin Hicks and/or his colleagues from Parker + Lynch.

• The first-ever “FENG-stivus for the Rest of Us;’ for those familiar with the custom established by George Castanza’s father (a classic Seinfeld episode from the 1990s), we all will have an opportunity to air our grievances and recognize the feats of strength.

• Ugliest Holiday sweater contest – all attendees will have an opportunity to vote for the best, second-best and third-best prizes (Starbucks gift cards, courtesy of your local FENG co-chairs) for indoor outerwear unfit for even the Abominable Snowman.

Structured networking will still find its way among the festivities set forth above so be sure to wrap up your 3-minute overview in its finest Holiday appearance – who you are, where you are headed in 2021 and specific target companies – so that we can assist you in your New Year’s resolutions.
