Arlington, VA, United States, 2006/04/05 - ESGR North Carolina Volunteer Area Chairman assumes additional volunteer duties with Raleigh-Wake Human Resources Management Association Chapter.
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense agency, congratulates Mr. John O’Connor, ESGR North Carolina Volunteer Area Chairman, on his appointment as Workforce Readiness Director for the Raleigh-Wake Human Resources Management Association (RWHRMA).
When asked about this additional volunteer obligation, O’Connor said “I consider this appointment an honor. It allows me to help an organization that has the respect of industry leaders nationally, regionally and here in North Carolina”.
O’Connor will be responsible for developing workforce readiness initiatives and programs for the nationally recognized Raleigh-Wake Human Resources Management Association chapter (RWHRMA).
“It should come as no surprise that my volunteer work in developing ESGR Strategic Partnerships with the national office of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) will also be of benefit to our 450 chapter members and the other committed SHRM members in North Carolina,” added O’Connor.
Mr. O’Connor is the President of Career Pro, Inc., a Raleigh, North Carolina-based Executive Search, Talent Acquisition and Consulting Firm. In 2004, Mr. O’Connor became the first private practice Certified Federal Search Trainer (CFJST) in North Carolina.
He has been featured in and is the author of many articles, in the Raleigh News Observer, Resume Writing Digest, The Gladiator, Execunet, Career Masters Institute Monthly Newsletter and Monster Career News.
RWHRMA is a premier chapter of SHRM having been nationally recognized for its many award-winning programs. Members have access to a wide range of professional development, community service and networking opportunities offered by RWHRMA.
As the 1.2 million members of the National Guard and Reserve continue to perform an increasing number of unique missions that require extraordinary actions on the part of everyday citizens, ESGR will continue to be the informational agency for the employers of America’s new Minutemen.
Mr. O’Connor is one of 4,000 ESGR volunteers nationwide that stands ready to assist employers and their employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
