If there's any group that knows better than most how pathetic the job market remains, it is the Greater Valley Forge Human Resource Association, a professional group for human resource people. As companies downsized, many of these people lost their jobs. Many had the tough job of laying others off and the. Whole recruiting departments were wiped out and have yet to be replaced. 

However, this is the same organization that should, more than most, have an understanding of how to land a job and that's why it is sponsoring a free event. Ford R. Meyers, author of the book "Get the Job You Want Even When No One's Hiring" will be the main speaker at the event, which takes place from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 15 at Villanova University's Connelly Center. It is open to the public.  

Frank Powell, from the outplacement company Lee Hecht Harrison, will moderate a panel. Panel members are Sally Stetson, of Salveson, Stetson, a retained executive search firm; Tom Sciorilli, vice president of human resources at De Lage Landen; Sean McManus, chief human resource office at ModSpace, and Jodi Kaelin, human resource business partner at Merck.
