If you want to expand your network and connect with other NRWA members, consider joining us for one of our upcoming Member Mixers! We held several of these speed networking sessions during our virtual conference and they were very well received, so our membership team decided to add some to our regular event schedule for 2021:
These member-only sessions will be held via Zoom. Attendees will be randomly placed in a series of one-on-one breakout rooms, so you will have the opportunity to meet several members during the event. There is no fee, but please register in advance via the links above receive Zoom meeting details. You will have to log in as a member. Each session will be held from 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., ET. You will notice on the event page each one has an optional theme.
Click on the above dates to register for each Member Mixer!
Our Member Mixers each have a theme—July's theme is National Cowboy Day. Celebrate by wearing your favorite western gear—hats, shirts, belts—or not!
NOTE: The August Mixer will be open to Nonmembers:
Feel Free to Invite a Friend - These events are often for NRWA members only, but for our August mixer you are welcome to invite a nonmember colleague to introduce them to NRWA. Just have the person register through this link. We’ve enabled nonmember registration for this event.
Let’s get innovative! LinkedIn calls the profile headline a HEADLINE for a reason. It’s meant to help the LinkedIn member sell themselves to viewers. But most people’s headlines are ineffective. That’s where we come in. Clients turn to us to write compelling profiles which includes creating a Headline that sells them to recruiters and employers.
Time to have some fun with that!The NRWA is running a “Headline Makeover” contest now through September 30, 2021. The contest guidelines are simple—submit a Before and After version of your Headline Makeover. As always, all entries win bragging rights, and the best Headline Makeover wins a $25 Amazon gift card.

NRWA Member "Create a Meme" Contest
Let's get creative!
If you’re on social media, you will likely see at least one meme a day. Probably more. Many brands across industries are attracting attention by hopping on the meme trend.
Why not NRWA members?
Many of us have already posted memes to educate and entertain jobseekers. A better way to stand out is to create our own.
Good news, creating memes is a lot easier than creating videos.
*Thanks to Tom Powner for our meme example!
To inspire you, the NRWA is running a Create a Meme contest from April 7 to June 30, 2021.
