Careers » Members in Transition

Members in Transition is a group of unemployed AIA Minnesota members who provide support through sharing resources; identifying opportunities to develop new skill sets; and utilizing the organization to promote their value to firm principals and hiring managers. These objectives are achieved through:

  • Biweekly meetings
  • Presentations and training
  • Development of a quick glance skill-set tool for firm principals looking to hire (see Talent Pool pdf below)

Our meetings are held every second Thursday of the month at IMS from 4:00-6:00p.m. All that is required is an rsvp to Deanna Christiansen by the Tuesday prior.

Our booth at the AIA Minnesota Convention, November 10-12, gathered people together and expanded our MIT group (shown above).

    The Talent Pool has been pulled from the web site in order to be updated with more current information from our unemployed members. The Members in Transition group hopes to have a more up-to-date Talent Pool spreadsheet posted again by January 1, 2013.
