Proposal Description:

Managing one's career is vital to the short and long-term success of every Life Science professional. Inevitably, a recruiter will contact everyone in this industry at some phase of his or her career (within some functions, you may be contacted constantly). Recruiters have the power to advance careers, increase compensation, and improve lives. Working with a good search firm can lead to a lasting relationship that can benefit you through your entire career. When a recruiter calls, will you be ready? Do you know what questions to ask? This session will describe how search firms work with candidates and how to best communicate with recruiters to your advantage.

Learning Objectives:
- Review the three questions to ask any recruiter that calls you to determine the nature of the search and the type of agreement that they have with the biotech, biopharma or pharmaceutical company they are representing.
- Understand what a recruiter can and cannot let you know at the beginning of your conversations.
- Understand what recruiters and hiring leaders look for on a candidate’s resume or CV.
- Explore what level of transparency should you use with recruiters?
- Answer how best to work with recruiters to maximize the likelihood that you will be presented.
- Review what strategy does a top-notch recruiter use to determine who she/he presents or does not present.
