In addition, at ASSE’s June Professional Development Conference (PDC) and Exposition held in Chicago, ASSE’s on-site Career Services Center featured more than 100 jobs and resumes posted for attendees to review. In addition, several companies held on-site interviews. It was reported that the center traffic was about the same as in prior years. Human resource (HR) professionals also provided free resume critiquing and mock interviews which was well received by the attendees. ASSE arranged for local HR professionals, who donated their time, to assist the SH&E professionals in the Career Center. Many of those HR volunteers not only reviewed resumes sent in by ASSE PDC attendees and then returned and reviewed them on site with those candidates, but also did the same for ASSE members not able to attend the conference.
