August 20th Topic: The Cadence of a Job Search
Presenter: Paul Cameron, Founder, SpeedUpMyJobSearch.com & President, DriveStaff, Inc.
Did you know that most recruiters work on 100% commission? That means if they cannot find a company willing to pay them a fee (usually in excess of $20K) to find a candidate to fill their position, and then actually fill their position after finding it, then they make nothing. They could spend hours and days even working working on a job they do not end up filling.
How do they remain in business? By creating a repeatable, reliable process that works. Recruiters (nor anyone else for that matter) cannot ‘hope’ to make an income each month, but with the right structure the don’t wonder IF they will make a placement, they wonder how many times they can complete the process and how many placements they will make.
Paul Cameron, a recruiter of 22 years, will share his process which he has adapted for job seekers. If you follow the process, you will talk with more employers every week and immediately have more activity in your job search. This process is already available to you at https://speedupmyjobsearch.com/3phases/ and it is free, but at this meeting he will walk you through it so you can ask questions and talk through situations. If you are searching for a job, you won’t want to miss this one!
Meets: Every 3rd Thursday of the month from 12pm to 1pm to discuss best practices to network for jobs. Meetings are FREE to attend.
