Exciting Career Services Developments
I have been your Career Consultant for a little over a year, and I recently sat down to develop a new set of goals and wanted to share them with you.
- Create additional ways to engage with PGA Members and Associates in ways that are educational, thought-provoking, and inspiring.
- Develop more efficient and accurate methods to identify employment issues in order to provide the most useful services.
- Continue to fulfill the PGA Mission of “Serve the Member”.
With those three goals in mind, I have a few updates. Regarding Goal #1, I have recently completed an update to my personal website and will be using it as an additional hub for career development information. I plan to update my blog bi-weekly, but hopefully more often as I create content. In addition, I have created a bi-weekly email for anyone interested in hearing my message on a consistent basis. If you would like to add your name to the e-mail distribution list, please click HERE. You can also find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook if you are active on social media.
Goal #2 requires a lot of research and analyzing data from the PGA Compensation Report and the Facility Operations Scorecard. There are obviously some gaps in the data, so I may be reaching out to you to ask if you would be willing to share some golf operations information such as payroll, rounds, etc. I hope to use this information to better quantify the value of PGA Professionals and the need for minimum payroll levels to support expected service standards.
Goal #3 is where you come in. I hope you give me the opportunity to assist you with career planning and development, and to get started simply give me a call (919.552.3781) or send me an email.
Finally, I have some GREAT news. The new Rules & Regulations for the PGA MSR requirements have been released, and you can now earn 2 MSR’s in the Required category per fiscal year for meeting with me in person to discuss your career. For those of you that I’ve met with since the end of the last cycle, I’ll be submitting your MSR’s in the next couple of weeks.
If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to call or email. In the meantime, best of luck for the end of the 2018 season, and I hope to see you soon.
