Your Great Redesignation
Join us for our IIBA Seattle March 22 chapter meeting, in the cloud! We are very excited to have Leah Hollingsworth as guest speaker. Leah will share knowledge and insight on the Business Analysis job market and tips for job-seekers.
Your Great Redesignation with Leah Hollingsworth
In January, Karin Kimbrough, LinkedIn's Chief Economist, dubbed this a "worker's economy." She calls it "a new labor market dynamic we haven’t seen in decades where job seekers are having an easier time finding and securing better job opportunities, with far less competition." It's a great time to get a better job and therefore a great time to rethink what makes you a fantastic hire. Join Seattle IIBA and Leah Hollingsworth, PHR, CAPM, of TokuSaku Consulting for a candid, instructive presentation exploring a new way to think about your value to an employer or client and how to best showcase it. We will consider the job market for business analysts and the toolkit you can prepare in preparation for a new position or complete career shift. The new virtual world of applying and interviewing has changed our interaction experiences, but not the need to come across as a capable professional and land that new role.
Leah Hollingsworth has more than 10 years of experience in communication management, the most recent of which is in business management consulting. Three years ago, Leah joined TokuSaku Consulting, the Seattle-based, minority owned management and technology consulting firm dedicated to driving best-of-class solutions across multiple verticals. As the firm’s Candidate Relationship Manager, she oversees a database of more than 1.5k uniquely qualified individuals, recruiting to the pipeline, directing the interview process, and guiding hiring decisions. Leah cares about making informed decisions, attaining a Certified Associate in Project Management credential to better understand her talent base and a Professional in Human Resources certification to broaden her skillset. Washington born and raised; she adventured to Saint Leo University in Florida for her bachelor’s, ultimately returning to the Pacific Northwest to reconnect with family. Leah is currently interested in using familiar language to bridge the gap between business and technology and across industries.
