The Boston Product Management Association (BPMA) will host a Career Night on Sept 18

Being the Director of Program Planning for The Boston Product Management Association, I couldn't resist putting in a plug for the Career Night and networking event starting at 5:30 pm on September 18, 2008 at Oracle Corporation in Burlington, MA. Leslie Ament, the BPMA Director of Employer and Recruiter Relations put together a strong panel of senior-level human resources executives and recruiters to speak on "Memorable Candidates: How They Got the Offer or Promotion." This is a particularly relevant topic at a time when many area companies are cutting costs by freezing hiring, reducing staffs, and eliminating departments.
BPMA is a professional association dedicated to the career development of product management and product marketing professionals, and is a not-for-profit, membership-based association that offers both local events and a comprehensive set of online resources. Membership is comprised of product professionals such as product managers, product marketing managers, product planners, brand managers and other professionals engaged in the management and development of products or services. BPMA offers many opportunities for professional growth and development - including monthly professional development programs.
The senior human resource and recruitment professionals participating on the panel are:
Senior HR Experts:
-- Patricia O'Neill, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, ATG
-- Michael Quinn, Vice President Talent Management & Development, Thermo Fischer Scientific -- Lynne Milbury Tartaglia, International HR Director, iBasis, Inc.
-- Diane Condon, Director of HR, Phase Forward
Senior Recruiters:
-- Dora Vell, President of Vell & Associates
-- Kristin Motta, Director, CM Access.
