    For the first time, TPC will be exhibiting at the Massachusetts Conference for Women, an annual event attended by 13,000 women gathered to learn from dozens of expert speakers about issues that matter to women, including personal finance, volunteerism, business and entrepreneurship, and more.

    TPC will be participating in the exhibition of products and services geared toward professional women, and we are intending to make some of them new members. Odds are in our favor, as all 13,000 tickets sold out within 24 hours!

    We are now in the process of staffing our booth in 1½ to 2 hour shifts on December 5 and 6, 2018. In addition to a memorable time, we will provide each volunteer with factual information, talking points, and conversation starters, to ensure that we are each telling the same, accurate story about TPC.

    We are looking for 3-4 TPC members for each shift. Please identify your top two choices, and we will do our best to accommodate your first choice.

    We have been asked once again to provide volunteers to conduct Mock Interviews for former TPC Grantee, BEST Hospitality Training. Mock interviews are part of BEST’s Job Seeker Program, in which students attend an Introduction to Hospitality/Housekeeping Pre-Apprenticeship class. Students will be applying for hotel housekeeping positions after graduation. The Mock Interviews are meant to simulate a “real” employment interview to help build the students’ confidence and identify additional training opportunities. Interviews are videotaped and each student will have an opportunity to view their interviews at a later time with his or her career coach.

    Each interview will take about 10 minutes with a selection of questions provided. After each interview, you will be asked to provide written notes and feedback, which will also provide valuable information for the career coaches to review with the students.

    Any questions, please email connect@thephilanthropyconnection.org.
