If you're looking to land a new position to launch the next stage of your career, nothing compares to getting advice from the folks who will be sitting on the other side of the interview table. This was the idea behind "Recruiter Coaching and Salary Trends," an MBA-focused event hosted by Lundquist College Career Services this January. Panelists included Cheryl Collins, director of human resources at Ninkasi Brewing Company, and two representatives from investment management firm Aequitas Capital: Lisa Rivet, director of human resources, and Adam Peterson, recruiting manager. During the question-and-answer session that kicked off the event, the trio of human resources experts shared what goes on behind the scenes when their companies seek to fill positions. "One of the biggest takeaways for me was how little time recruiters spend reading individual resumes. Although my resume remains ultra-important, I know it must also be easy to skim," said Chelsey Hughes, MBA '13. Later in the evening, Director of Career Services James Chang shared his insights about salary trends. With knowledge comes confidence. "Getting an inside look at the key pieces of the interview process gave me information I can use as I apply for future positions," said Tony Cresta, MBA '13.
