Earlier this month, Blue Signal had the chance to be represented at Career Connectors’ August Staffing Panel by one of our top Executive Recruiters, Trevor Gamble, to touch on and debunk the Myths about Working with Staffing Firms.
The event began with Career Connectors CEO and founder, Jessica Pierce, introducing the four panelists to the room of over 80 professionals. The panel consisted of CEO LT Ladino-Bryson with vCandidates, our own Executive Recruiter Trevor Gamble with Blue Signal Search, CEO Graham Greytak with HireRising and Area Manager, Brendan Naper with NESCO Resource.
After introductions, the panelists were asked a variety of questions ranging from “How Candidates Can Build a Relationship with Recruiters” to a “Favorite Success Story.”
With such an open forum for questions and ideas, attendees were able to ask the panelists questions about their own experience and how to deal with niche industries and skill sets. With the array of staffing firms and industry experts in the room, attendees were able to get a clear and concise look into the world of recruiting from a recruiter’s point of view. Although recruiters are well-known in business industries, the average person may not be aware that staffing firms give them more options and take off some of the pressure when searching for a new career. The informative panel gave people who have and who have not worked with recruiters in the past a more positive outlook about the benefits of working with recruiters.
In addition to the great benefits attendees received from the panel, recruiters also received some insightful information that could help them with their own searches. They were able to openly discuss the different styles and tactics other recruiters use to source candidates and the type of relationship they build with candidates.
”The topic of the event was as relevant for the job seekers as it was for people in steady careers looking for a change. The audience got to hear from recruiters across different industries and ask the tough questions about what it is like to work with staffing firms – the advantages and challenges. I feel the group left the event with much more information and tools for their career search toolkits,” Trevor recapped from the event.
Regardless of if you were an attendee or panelist, the information presented served as a valuable resource for all who attended.
