Navigating Agency Recruiters and Headhunters

About 10% to 20% of all jobs are found via external recruiters and headhunters. There will be a panel discussion composed of agency recruiters telling you how to work effectively with them. Usually, there will be 3 to 4 recruiters at these sessions. Most of the time, these sessions will have a breakout period where each recruiter will work with a smaller group of attendees.

After a recent recruiter's panel 1/3 of the attendees got job interviews with one or more of the panelists. Thus, everyone will leave with a good understanding of how to work with external recruiters and headhunters.

Our Scheduled Experts are:

Cheryl Holmes, who has been a recruiter, sales person and branch manager in the IT staffing field for many years.

Stephanie Eberhart, Managing Partner, Talent Remedy

Kathleen Litschgi, Senior Account Manager, AQUENT


Please Note:

1. All attendees are required to dress as if they are going to a formal job interview. For men this means a suit.

4. BJSP starts promptly at 8:45 AM and ends promptly at 12:00 Noon.

    The participating recruiters provided timely, informative summaries of their business operations, their professional services for local firms and job seekers, and the status of the local job market. Overall a very informative session.

    I thought it was a great meeting. I am very appreciative of the recruiter's comments and the time they took in speaking with the attendees individually.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
