Since 1994 Shira Harrington has been helping employers and job seekers successfully find one another. Developing a management and executive recruiting practice within the association industry and more recently a career consulting practice, Shira is keen on helping her clients identify their optimal match. For job seekers, her expertise is in exploring career goals, crafting powerful resumes that catch the eye of recruiters like her and preparing for engaging interviews.

Shira is a regular speaker at Beltway Job Search Partners, MBC Career Network Ministry and 40-Plus of Greater Washington. She is also an active volunteer leader in ASAE (American Society for Association Executives) and founded an executive peer roundtable entitled SAFE (Small Association Forum for Executives) which provides a forum for best practice sharing among small staff association executives.

In addition, Shira plays an active role in the Washington, DC metropolitan human resources community. She is past President of the Human Resources Leadership Forum and was Vice President of Programs for the Human Resources Association of the National Capital Area. Additionally she runs a monthly brown bag lunch for HR professionals in the nonprofit and association sector.

Shira also is a consultant and presenter on managing the multigenerational workforce. As a subject matter expert, she brings her extensive research and her unique, 'real world' perspective of the world at work to bridge the perceived gaps between the generations and prepare executives for the coming labor shortage. Differences in work ethic, life values, work-life expectations, teamwork, communication styles and relationship to authority are just some of the challenges facing employees of each generation. Moreover, as Baby Boomers prepare to retire, employers are likely to be short-handed unless succession planning begins now.

Shira has been published in the monthly magazine of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, quoted in Federal Computer Weekly, profiled in the Washington Business Journal (June 1, 2007), interviewed in Bottom Line Briefing (January 2009) and is a contributing author to a new book, Motivating the Millennial Knowledge Worker (Spring 2009).

Shira earned a Masters degree in Public Relations with a focus on employee communications from the University of Maryland at College Park.
