The 2017 ELGL Resume Book™️ is here! All of the award-winning ELGL members that submitted their resumes are listed below along with a short description of themselves and their latest resume.
But what should I use this for? Here’s a few hypothetical reasons the Resume Book™️ is awesome:
- Let’s say a graduate student is looking to learn more about economic development in cities and you just so happen to work on economic development projects in Roanoke, VA. An ELGL member can search the ELGL Resume Book™️, find your background and connect with you to learn about your job.
- The City of Boulder, CO is recruiting for a Public Information Officer and didn’t find what they were looking for in the first round of applications. Since they are an Organizational Member they can search the ELGL Resume Book™️ to communicate about the opportunity to potential candidates or find other communications staff to learn about what works in recruiting.
- You work for the City of Evanston, IL and are looking for a new vendor to host your website. Simply search the ELGL Resume Book™️ to find other ELGL members that have worked on similar projects who can educate you on what they learned going through the same process.
