I joined Phoenix Executive network as I felt lonely in my search. I found at PEN a group of individuals mirroring an Executive Committee. All the roles are represented. The Monday morning meeting, the weekly progress report are bringing a discipline that kept me in a business mindset. Every time I had a decision to make I asked PEN members for advice. Every time I got very valuable perspectives and a variety of opinion that truly helped me in my thought process. Others questions were also enriching my own thought process as they were sharing their searches. PEN members diverse experience proved to be very helpful in expanding my network. PEN keeps all its members focused and highly motivated as they go through an unsettling search. This is the most important PEN benefit for me. I would recommend PEN to anyone who is looking to speed up their job search.
