Spencer Stuart executive recruiter speaks on “How to work with internal and external recruiters” plus a round of networking

An early step in every job search is an encounter with a recruiter, whether it’s a headhunter from an executive search firm or a company’s internal talent acquisition specialist. Regardless, it’s critical that you understand how a recruiter thinks, the process they use to find candidates and how companies narrow down the field to 3-5 qualified individuals.

During this meeting, veteran executive recruiter, Chris Nadherny, will help you understand the process that a recruiter goes through to find the most viable candidates. You’ll gain an insider’s perspective followed by a Q&A session where meeting attendees will have a chance to ask Chris questions that they typically aren’t comfortable asking an individual in his role Some of the topics that Chris’ presentation will cover include:

* The upfront discussions that take place between hiring manager and recruiter.
* The research and tools that go into finding qualified candidates & how you can make yourself more visible.
* What to expect from an executive recruiter & how to create an ongoing relationship.
* The talent screening process and how a recruiter assesses good talent.
* How companies analyze candidate finalists based on cultural fit, organizational chemistry, leadership, upside potential, individual value & sincere interest.
* How the compensation package offer and negotiations are handled.

Chris Nadherny is a former executive search consultant, practice leader and partner with Spencer Stuart’s Chicago office for 30 years. He has conducted over 700 searches for many Fortune 1000 firms including PepsiCo and Johnson & Johnson. He led the Spencer Stuart’s Global Digital Practice and his searches covered a broad range of industries such as: consumer goods, service firms, retailers, hospitality, heathcare, marketing service companies, B2B enterprises and private equity. Chris is also getting ready to publish a career guidebook with his insights from his many interactions with executives. Chris is an MBA graduate from the Wharton School of Business and sits on the Advisory Board of GVG Capital, a private equity firm focused on digital/e-commerce.

Our meeting agenda will include:

6:15-6:30   Open networking

6:30-6:45   Meeting announcements

6:45-7:35   Chris’ presentation and Q&A

7:35-8:30   Small group networking session

Please feel free to invite friends or associates to this meeting or any future ones. There are no upfront fees to join NSENG… just pay $20 at the check-in table for each meeting that you attend.

Next NSENG Event:
Mon Apr 17– Catherine Johns (former radio talk show host) speaks on “How to deliver a powerful elevator pitch that makes you memorable”.

Have you ever been frustrated when a recruiter doesn’t call you back? The following information will help you set realistic expectations and hopefully obtain better results.
It’s important that you understand the following realities about Staffing and Recruiting Firms:

1. Most specialize in a specific industry, profession or geographic location.

ACTION ITEM: You must identify if the recruiters you are using specialize in the type of job you are seeking.

2. When companies hire recruiting firms to provide them with talent, they are very specific about the education, skills, experience and job stability they require. This greatly limits who recruiting firms can present to their various clients.
ACTION ITEM: Review your resume or CV. If you do not have the education, skills, experience or job stability required, you may have more success by either changing your job target or applying directly to companies.
3. Staffing and Recruiting Firms also specialize in different segments of the job market. Some place only full-time positions, some specialize in temporary jobs and others focus on higher level long term contracts. There are also firms who consider themselves blended who place in more than one segment of the profession.

ACTION ITEM: Work with recruiters who specialize in the type of job you are seeking. If you want to work as a contractor, identify contract staffing firms in your niche or area of interest.

4. Recruiters don’t have time to provide daily or weekly updates. They spend most of their time reaching out to their clients trying to market your abilities, to schedule interviews for you. They often represent 200+ candidates and if they constantly reached out to them, they would have no time to find you a job.

ACTION ITEM:
Contact your recruiter if you change information on your resume or schedule interviews on your own. This helps your recruiter fine tune their search efforts on your behalf and not duplicate any of your efforts.

Recruiters only earn commissions if they place their candidate in a job – so they have a vested interest to place you. However, if you are not in their area of specialization, want to work in a segment they don’t represent and lack experience or job stability, often their hands are tied.

Take time to RESEARCH the Staffing and Recruiting Firm Recruiter who places in your area of expertise, and you will greatly enhance your chance of success.

2) How Do I Job Search, When I’m Employed? (Free Webinar)

Monday, March 20th @ 2:00 pm EST (11:00 pm PST, 12:00 pm MST, 1:00 pm CST)

You may have heard the adage, “It’s easier to get a job when you have one.” There are many challenges to finding a job when you are currently working. During this session, we will discuss the following:

When to find time to job search

How to maintain your current job (even though you’re not happy)

How not to get caught job-searching

How to interview when working a full-time job

What to list as desired income, when you are currently under-employed

How to make your reason for leaving positive

3) Ignite Your Job Search with Confidence (Free Webinar)

Wednesday, March 29rd @ 1:00 pm EST (10:00 am PST, 11:00 am MST, 12:00 pm CST)

NSENG Meeting

Glenview Library (1930 Glenview Rd)

Tickets: Pay $20 when you attend a meeting at the check-in table

Many changes in the job search process have taken place over the past few years and if candidates aren’t adapting to those shifts, their job search can be a significantly longer experience. Keeping abreast of new job search technologies, interviewing methods and communication tools are just part of the adjustments a candidate needs to make in order maximize their efforts. So, what does and doesn’t work in order to accelerate and maximize your time?
During this meeting, executive recruiter and coach, Greg David, will present on specific things you should and shouldn’t do to improve your activity and shorten our job search timeline. Some of the topics that Greg will cover include:
  • How to create an effective bi-directional job search.
  • Tips to improve your phone interview preparation.
  • How to make yourself more current and relevant in the job market.
  • Key Do’s and Don’ts of a successful resume.
  • The essentials of good interview follow-up.
  • How to demonstrate emotional and business maturity.

Greg David is President of Laka & Company. He has been in the recruiting industry for 25 years and is in his 17th year in the leadership and job search coaching fields. He also advises companies on how to attract, identify, hire and develop talent. Greg coaches individuals on how to implement tactical approaches to better navigate the employment marketplace and tap into unpublished jobs and opportunities that you can create through influence. His “historic recollection” methodology and “mirroring” technique enables candidates to create a greater alignment with hiring firms and interviewers. His experience and knowledge will make for an engagement presentation.

The meeting agenda will include:
6:15-6:30   Open networking
6:30-6:45   Meeting announcements

Career Advice Tips
You will conduct a much more successful job search if you are prepared and plan your calls at the end of each day. When you are in a job search, there are endless distractions, especially family members who are now comfortable putting demands on your time.

When you are in a job search, you are in sales – which is a numbers game. You must send out resumes daily, call on resumes you have submitted prior and do everything you can to schedule either an informational or job interview every day.

This is only possible, when you are focused and spend most of your time figuring out what you need to do, to schedule your next interview. You can submit 500 resumes a week, but if you schedule no interviews, you will not land your next job.

As you complete your plan, focus on the efforts that have the best chance of giving you results. Any action or contact that can lead to an interview is best use of your time and should be at the top of your plan. If you are not planning for success, you are inadvertently planning for failure.

MUST READ The Library in our Career Portal is filled with articles and training sessions covering hot topics. Too often, job seekers will focus primarily on the aggregate job listings and ignore many of the other resources that are offered. This information is relevant, current and will help you find a job!

#1 Re-Think! Shifting for Success in Your Job Search
– Monday, January 16th @ 1:00 pm EST (10:00 am PST, 11:00 am MST, 12:00 pm CST)
When talking to job seekers, I often hear complaints such as, “It’s too hard” or “it’s too frustrating”, or “I’m overwhelmed”. Does the voice in your head habitually complain and say things like, “I can’t do it”?How do you identify the tell-tale signs of this complaining habit, what do you do to overcome it? To get a job offer, you must put your focus, attention, energy, and time on getting hired. This is where you must shift your thinking, because until you do, you’re giving all of your power away.Each and every one of us can take our power back. We simply need the tools and determination.In this results-focused presentation, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to decide and commit to your goal of getting hired.
  • Shift from focusing on “what’s wrong” to focusing on “what works”.
  • Discover how to rise above the circumstances and take powerful action.
  • Be empowered to move through your job search activity with ease.
  • Learn how to powerfully use your time and energy starting today.

Come learn how you can shift your thoughts and feelings of being upset, angry, frustrated, hopeless, burned out, or all of the above. When you know your power, you shift into success immediately!

#2 Make Every Move in Your Search Count
– Monday, January 23rd @ 3:00 pm EST (12:00 pm PST, 1:00 PM MST, 2:00 pm CST)
There is no guarantee that you will find a job if you work hard on your job search. If you’ve been conducting your search for more than 6 months, chances are you’re working hard but not necessarily smart. During this session we will address the following:

  • Getting your resume in the right hands
  • Increasing your networking efforts
  • Other necessary “moves” in your job search
