Shira Harrington, Chief Engagement Officer of Purposeful Hire, is committed to finding the “higher purpose” in every hire. Within her career coaching, small business branding, recruiting and generational diversity practices, Shira creates highly engaged workplaces by focusing on the mutual purpose of both employers and job seekers.
In her career coaching practice, Shira’s expertise is helping job seekers create a powerful career brand including a recruiter-focused resume and LinkedIn profile. She also supports solopreneurs in their launch by developing a targeted business development strategy and compelling website.
Shira is a regular speaker at DC area job seeker groups and association peer networks; and she plays an active role in the human resources community, having served on the boards of the HR Leadership Forum and the DC chapter of SHRM.
Shira also is a diversity keynote presenter with a special expertise in engaging a multigenerational workforce. 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.
A fervent champion of age diversity, Shira launched BoomerWorks.org, a nonprofit program empowering professionals age 50+ to transition into self-employment. Through a divine epiphany in 2013, she became profoundly aware that this age cohort requires new income solutions as they “age out” of the traditional W2 workforce.
Shira earned a Masters degree in Public Relations with a focus on employee communications from the University of Maryland at College Park.
