During this 90-minute session, Chris will provide practical insight into applying recruiter techniques to open new doors, including:
Techniques that allow you to take control of your job search.
The art of “polite persistence” to help you network without becoming a stalker.
How to take control when you apply online and no one contacts you.
How to make LinkedIn and the telephone an effective part of your job search.
Insider tips on how to find and work with executive recruiters, from someone who has been there.
“With times as tough as they are, it’s even more important to stay focused and rally your resources to launch an effective job search,” said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection teleseminars. “Companies are still hiring, but they are being more selective and slower to act, which is why you need an inside track to find the right contact who can make a hiring decision. Chris understands how retained job search works from the inside out, and we are fortunate to be able to offer his expertise to Experts Connection attendees. This promises to be one of our most valuable sessions to date.”
