Please join us for our next program on Recruiters.  Our panel includes veteran contingent and retained firm recruiters (John Bresnahan from Robert Half, Paul Brennan from Stone Staffing, Richard Pooley from Heidrick & Struggles, and John Gouthro from The Addison Group).  They will discuss their industry, the 2019 market outlook in the Boston area, where recruiters should fit into an FEI member’s search strategy, how and when FEI members can and should establish relationships with recruiters, skills that clients are asking for, how best to work with recruiters, tips on resumes and interviewing, tricks that recruiters use to learn from, etc.  This evening will benefit not only those in-transition, but also keeping your knowledge and contacts fresh in regards to recruiters as a key for those of you “in-between” searches.  It’s a perfect time to establish relationships, learn about the market and think about your next career steps.
