Pam Dawson, member of the Southwestern CT Chapter since 2011, graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and spent an early career as art teacher which honed her communication, interpersonal and project management skills. After a move to CT, she began a career as an administrative assistant and worked her way up the ladder to a current position as Senior Executive Assistant supporting C-level executives.
Along the way, she has worked for Georgia Pacific, Spencer Stuart, GE, PWC, UBS, JMW and McKinsey along with stints at smaller consulting firms and an exciting job with a non-profit.
Armed with a “teaching” view to her administrative responsibilities, Pam soon learned there was no training for admins. In many of the firms listed above, Pam volunteered to be trainer/mentor to new administrative staff and became a “best practices” advocate. At Spencer Stuart, Pam spent six years working with resumes and knows the elements that comprise a document that will get attention.
Pam has now volunteered to be the SWCT chapter’s “go to” member for Resume Writing and Career Development for our chapter. She will work with you one-on-one to help you step by step with the daunting task of updating your resume, getting that LinkedIn profile done and setting out a plan to accomplish your goal of either furthering yourself in your current position or setting yourself up for a job change.
We invite you to check out our chapter…become a member…network…and be part of a team that nourishes and mentors your professional life.
