Staff Announcement: Ruth Moore & Elena Chernaeva

Today is a special blog entry at ‘theWave’ as we would like to take this opportunity to share some exciting news with our blog followers. We are pleased to introduce to you our two newest employees at ERIEC who are quite used to being on the leading edge of ‘theWave’.

Ruth Moore has recently accepted our offer of employment as the Career Mentorship Program Director. Her first day in her new position was on March 1st, 2013. Ruth was hired as our Special Projects Facilitator at ERIEC 9 months ago and was responsible for the development of ERIEC’s 2012-2013 Speed Career Networking events, the launch of ERIEC’s blog “theWave” and most recently our very successful Global Talent Conference which was held at the Fantasyland Hotel Conference Centre at West Edmonton Mall on February 28th, 2013.  Ruth brings extensive professional and program management experience to the team, which includes a background in program development, event planning, social media engagement and relationship management in the non-profit, settlement, technology, and education and training sectors. She is recognized by her peers as an enthusiastic “people person” capable of inspiring others to achieve challenging objectives.

Elena Chernaeva, formerly of the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers (EMCN), has also joined the ERIEC team as of March 11th as our new Project Coordinator for Special Projects. At EMCN, Elena was a Career Employment Consultant and the CIIP (Canadian Immigrant Integration Program) Online Advisor for Northern Alberta.  She brings to the ERIEC team a wide range of experience working with employers, government, regulatory bodies, academic, ethnocultural communities and immigrant service provider stakeholders. Elena also has extensive experience in program development and management.

Welcome aboard, Ruth and Elena, to the mighty ERIEC team! Follow “theWave” for exciting updates and future blogs from these two ‘Wave riders’!
