its aliveWant to get your resume added? Don’t worry just email Ben Kittelson at and send him a copy of your resume. He will compile submissions each month and add them to the front of the book.

How do you use the resume book? 
Here are 3 ideas:

Example 1: Let’s say you’re tasked with hiring a public affairs firm to complete a citizen survey. You will be able to look through member profiles for others who have worked on a similar project. You will be able to use this information to contact other members for advice on public affairs firms, advice on crafting the RFP, or ideas for survey questions.

Example 2: Your organization is hiring a city manager. You can look through the member profiles for potential candidates and for those who may know of potential candidates. You also can ask other members for job descriptions, engaging interview questions, or effective assessment centers.

Example 3: You’re looking for a job after graduating with an MPA or you’re looking to change jobs. ELGL will compile all the member profiles (you can opt out) into an electronic Resume Book. The book will be provided to executive search firms, local governments, and private sector firms in the local government arena
