This meeting is an interactive discussion where you have the opportunity to investigate market trends, consider job prospects, and explore behind the scenes hiring behaviors, with an emphasis on reliability engineering in particular. The speaker has worked in both retainer and contingency search environments and has specialized in recruiting manufacturing engineering talent for the past 30 years. Together, we will create a lively discussion and get some answers to the questions and concerns you have about your career. The roll today of the recruiter in the job search–does the fact of the recruiter’s commission help or hurt the candidate’s chances? What value is derived for the employer? How many recruiters should a job searcher connect with? What’s the difference between contingency and retained recruiters and how do I pick one? The latest set of accepted standards for what a resume should look like–what works and what doesn’t work? A resume for visual impact or one to get by screening software? What steps do you take if the job you thought you had forever ends tomorrow? How has social media changed the job hunting process? What are the most common interviewing mistakes to avoid?
