GDI's ongoing career series is designed to bring together our community with recruiters for a casual and candid conversation regarding the job market today. The event will kick off with a moderated discussion with each of the recruiters about what they are looking for, trends they are seeing in their industry, and tips they wish they could tell every candidate.
The event will then divide attendees into breakout rooms to provide one-to-one time between event participants and recruiters. Leading up to the event, GDI will connect with attendees to determine their interest/area of focus to best match individuals with recruiters in their field.
This event is open to everyone as an exceptional opportunity to learn and build new skills; you do not have to be actively seeking a new role to attend. This is your opportunity to ask the questions you've always wanted answers to! If you are seeking a new role, don't be shy! Update that Linkedin profile, grab your resume, and come ready to share your skills!
We anticipate this to be a rewarding and popular event! Please update your registration form if you can no longer attend so we can offer spots to others. Also, please flexibility in your schedule the day of the event with the understanding that we may go past the scheduled time in order to provide personal time for each attendee and recruiter.
Hiring Managers will join us from the following companies:
