Recruiter David Bayuk - next Friday (March-15) at Metrowest Networkers Group


The Metrowest Networkers Group welcomes

David Bayuk

Working with a Recruiter

Strategies for Success

 

Friday, March 15

 

The three main ways people look for jobs are by applying online, networking, and working with a recruiter. Most job seekers talk to a recruiter, apply, and then wait for an answer. But, is that best practice?  Of course not--You can't simply give a recruiter your resume and expect them to find you a job you covet.

So, what are the best practices? Are all recruiters the same? What are the kinds of recruiters?

And how do you know a recruiter is really good?

Join us to learn the answers from David Bayuk, an experienced recruiter and career professional who has worked for multiple recruiting agencies.

Why you should attend: After networking, the next best strategy for landing a role is to work with a recruiter. If you want the recruiter to really help you, you should learn how to best help them help you. It is vital for you to present your best self, know your responsibilities, and understand the role of the recruiter.


1st & 3rd Fridays of the month: 10 am - Noon

7 Bishop Street, Framingham, MA 01702

At the headquarters for the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC)


David Bayuk has extensive experience working in the recruiting and placement industries. He has worked on both the company and client-facing sides for notable companies such as The Eliassen Group, Winter Wyman, Alexander Technology Group, and Experis. He is adept at business development, recruiting, employee training, and account management.
