September 1, 2009—Vernon Hills, IL— Baxter Credit Union (BCU), in its continuing efforts to help consumers navigate through these challenging economic times, is offering a seminar on attaining employment. The "Standing Out in the Crowd: From Job Search to Accepting an Offer" seminar, led by recruiting expert Shauna Moreno, will be held September 16th at BCU’s Crystal Lake branch, and September 23rd at the main branch in Vernon Hills.

Illinois' unemployment rate of 10.5% exceeds the national average; therefore, each open position can garner hundreds of applicants. This free seminar will cover strategies applicants can use throughout the recruitment process to make an impression, plus common mistakes to avoid, challenges applicants face, and more.

Speaker Shauna Moreno is an industry expert in the employment field, having recruited for the manufacturing, technology, and financial industries, from entry-level positions to senior management. She holds a Bachelor’s in Philosophy from the University of Illinois at Chicago and currently serves as a Senior Recruiter for BCU.

To RSVP for this event at either location, please call Sarah Johnson at (847) 522-8494 or email Sarah.Johnson@BCU.org. The Crystal Lake Branch is located at 415 South Main Street, while the Vernon Hills location is 340 North Milwaukee Avenue. Both seminars will begin at 6pm.
