"What Recruiters Want"
with: David Magy
Thursday Evening, July 9th

So much mystery seems to surround working with recruiters...
- Retained, Contingent and (internal) Corporate-based.
David’s presentation will define the terms commonly used (what IS a ‘head-hunter’), and explain the external recruiter’s role in working with candidates and organizations. He will also talk about internal recruiters - and how to develop relationships with them as well. Salary discussions will also be addressed. At the end of the presentation, he will talk about hot business areas to pursue - based on general growth for all career areas.
David Magy, over the past 30 years, has earned the reputation as “expert” in the field of retained search, corporate recruitment and workforce consulting. He has worked extensively with human resource staffing system design from both the corporate and consulting perspectives.
In 1996, David further used his knowledge to help establish Abeln, Magy, Underberg & Associates as a respected partner in recruiting key talent within a large array of business. David is a nationally recognized speaker and blogs on matters related to search, staffing and ethics.
David is very active in the community, working as a “friend of the board” within three non-profit organizations. David enjoys many hobbies and pursuits – he is known as a person who ‘collects experiences.’

with: Heidi Grange
