We talk all the time about how Preferred Member recruiters should attend events like the Top Echelon Network Fall Conference. However, this week we’re going to let other recruiters do the talking.
In this case, that recruiter is Karen Akbal-Sturgeon of KLA Industries, who’s bringing ALL of the recruiters in her office to the 2012 Top Echelon Network Fall Conference. Below are her thoughts about the upcoming conference and why she’s attending:
“The Big Biller training is really helpful for the rookies. So much slips through the cracks, and I always learn something new from the upgrades that come up. My senior recruiters also need updated on the changes and the added features.
“The Icebreaker [Reception] is good for team building and networking within the industry and helps recruiters to run ideas past other recruiters and build relationships with future split partners in their area.
“This year’s training by Shally [Steckerl] is huge for developing recruiting search skills that I can never keep up on, and [our recruiters] need to know it! This type of recruiter training was what tipped the scale in bringing everyone.
“I like the Lightening Rounds, so the rookies can learn from the veterans other than myself about the topics important to the industry. I want them to build relationships with recruiters in our niche so they can find candidates quicker and make more placements!
“I want [our recruiters] to see and hear how much money certain recruiters are making and see themselves doing that.
“The whole experience: driving up, eating together, and going out with the gang, is great for team building and morale and building loyalty.”
The Fall Conference is scheduled for Thursday, October 11, and Friday, October 12, at the Sheraton Chicago O’Hare. Early Bird Registration for the conference is currently underway. The price of Early Bird is just $210 per person.
However, this price won’t be around forever. Sign up now and plan to join us in Chicago for a great training and networking event!
