Becoming a Better Recruiter

A FREE how-to webinar series for anyone who is involved with hiring people in an A/E/P or environmental firm!

The BECOMING A BETTER RECRUITER seminar has gone online!

Imagine if every person in your firm knew how to cultivate relationships, develop talent, convey company culture, and market your firm in a succinct and persuasive way that sets you apart from the competition? It’s not enough to have the design or technical expertise to complete projects, you need people who can convey excitement and sell opportunities to just about anyone they interact with. Everyone is not a born recruiter, but everyone can learn how to be more effective at capitalizing on opportunities to identify, develop, and hire the best and brightest people to join your firm.

BECOMING A BETTER RECRUITER is a webinar series specifically designed to help firm principals, managers, HR people, and design and technical professionals in architecture, engineering, planning, and environmental firms become better at hiring top talent. We will help you and your team be more comfortable approaching great talent and learn how to promote the firm, its culture, and career opportunities and advancement.

These six webinars are jam packed with actionable items you can immediately put to use.
