In August, we hosted Allison Dietz, veteran corporate and college recruiter, to "spill the tea" on what recruiters and hiring managers look for in candidates and how to stand out in a competitive job market. As part of our conversation, we covered the following topics:
How to network prior to applying for a job so you come in with a referral
Little-known tips from a veteran recruiter on how the application and interview processes really work
Common pitfalls and how to avoid them to land your dream job
How the pandemic changed recruiting - and how hiring leaders as well as candidates should respond
We also practiced building relationships through mutual connections. If you'd like a free resource document with sample starter questions from Allison, we've made that available here.
