6:30 PM - How To Successfully Work With Recruiters - The Secret Sauce


Facilitated by Tom Colosimo, Career Coach and Former Executive Recruiter

Working with recruiters can be stressful and frustrating.  Why don’t they call me back or keep me informed better about job openings?  It seems they just don’t care about me and my job search!  It seems to be a waste of time to work with agency recruiters who say one thing but do something else.

The feeling of being neglected or not valued as a candidate is common when working with recruiters.  The key to understanding why this happens is to know what recruiters want and how they want it

  1. What are you saying to a recruiter when you first meet them?
  2. How do you stay in touch after you’ve met with them?
  3. Why do they not reach out to me more often with updates?
  4. What are the different types of recruiters and how do they differ on how you work with them?
  5. How can you make yourself standout as a business professional to be someone with whom they want to engage?

Tom Colosimo, career coach, former recruiter and former corporate executive, will cover these questions and more. He has worked within corporate accounting roles for over 20 years, agency recruiting for over 6 years, corporate recruiting roles for 2 years and a career coach for 10 years.  Tom believes that networking is key to finding the job of your dreams and also can be applied when working with recruiters for success.  He understands what recruiters are looking for and why they handle candidates the way they do.  It’s the New Secret Sauce!
