On May 11, 2017 Harmer sponsored its 3rd annual LBDN, or Little Black Dress Night. The event, hosted by CNA Insurance and ChiTech’s Young Women’s Leadership Society (YWLS), is a networking event that raises funds to support ChiTech’s women in tech program. A featured panel of women influencers give attendees the opportunity to grow their network and learn from other women in the tech industry. The evening was a great success; with over 350 attendees and 20 table sponsorships, the sold out event was one for the books!
Exciting changes are afoot at Harmer: we’d like to take the time to welcome two new associates to the staff: Jake Gregus and Meredith Stevens.
Jake joins us after spending time at Onward Search and Robert Half. This Wildcat played football at Northwestern and after graduation started his career at Aldi. In his spare time, Jake is the lead guitarist and singer in a rock band. Jake will be joining Harmer Consultants, Account Executive team.
Meredith joins Harmer Consultants, Recruiting team after spending 4 years at Geneva Technical Services. Meredith is originally from Connecticut and went to college at Miami University. She is the proud owner of a Cavapoo named Junior and a husband named Jimmy.
We’re excited to welcome these two new employees and look forward to working with them!
In conjunction with ConnectVets, Society of Talent Acquisition and Recruitment (STAR) Chicago, Exelon, and ADP; Harmer hosted a networking event for Veterans and Military Spouses before the Hiring Our Heroes Career Fair. Veterans and Military Spouses had the opportunity to meet some Military Recruiters and members of STAR Chicago a day early to prep for the large Hiring Our Heroes Career Fair which was held the following day at the United Center.
The event offered Veterans the chance to get a last second resume review as well conduct 1-on-1 mock interview training sessions prior to the career fair. The event was well attended and offered candidates and companies alike to network and talk further about how we can better serve our Veteran population.
We all need to treat ourselves sometimes. With this in mind, Harmer’s own Kelly Littlejohn and Matt Jones gathered up a few of our clients for a night of beauty, pampering, and fun. Our goal was to thank them for their business in a relaxed, spa like atmosphere. To get the event rolling, we contacted Blink Mobile Spa, a company that delivers premium beauty services on site.
On Thursday, January 5th, Harmer invited our client to partake in a variety of complimentary beauty services, including blowouts, manicures, massages, and makeup applications. Appetizers and refreshments rounded out the evening of pampering. It was a great night filled with food, fun, and — because at Harmer, we know that sometimes the best investment you can make is the one you make in yourself.
