Develop your interview + hiring strategy. Hiring managers and candidates will be separated by a thin sheet of glass as they gain invaluable insight into the ins and outs of the hiring process. This is a unique panel-based event: we'll start out together, separate to focus, then reconvene to network.

Hiring Managers: 1 panel discussion will help hiring managers think through the hiring process—how and when you hire; timelines; need identification; interview strategies to differentiate candidate attributes... It's a thorough, thoughtful, discussion to enlighten even the most jaded manager.

Candidates: The 2nd panel discussion will help candidates develop situational awareness during the interview process. You'll also gain insight into process; do's and don'ts; and best practices to manage communications, stress, and negotiations. This is a strategic interview refresher course that you can apply both to your own job search and to your career practices. (Note, this is primarily for design-based interviews.)
