    Dear SHRM Members and Guests:

    Please join us for an exciting presentation with
    Jodi Slavik from Vigilant Counsel for Employers
     Program Overview:  This program offering is titled
    "Hiring the Best, Weeding the Worst"

    Determine exactly what the open position requires (and what it doesn’t).  Learn résumé and application review techniques to help weed out inflated credentials. Avoid the hidden legal risks of small talk. Generate interview questions that help the most qualified applicants rise to the top. Get the most you can out of your reference checks. Discover the traps of researching applicants on-line.  Feel confident that you can support your hiring decisions with facts, not feelings.

    About the Speaker:

    Jodi proudly provides counsel to Washington State businesses on employment and labor issues, including training of HR professionals, managers, supervisors, and employees on a range of liability and leadership issues.  Before joining Vigilant in 2011, Jodi served 15 years as an in-house trade association counsel, including roles as general counsel, environmental lobbyist, and class instructor. She has extensive experience managing staff, advising corporate leadership, developing media relations, drafting legislation, testifying before tribunals, negotiating with agencies, and teaching education courses.  As a state certified Real Estate Clock Hour instructor, Jodi is at her best when distilling and conveying complex, controversial information in an immediately useful, entertaining way.
