Webinars Let You Pick IT Recruiter's Brain

Susan Hall

Minnesota Headhunter blogger Paul DeBettignies is offering online seminars called "Be Your Own Headhunter," with sessions Wednesday and Nov. 26. He is charging $30 for the 2 1/2-hour sessions, though it's an honor system, so you can pay what you can afford. That's a big plus at a time when so many are unemployed. Sessions start at noon.


He plans an extensive agenda:


  • Current economic and job statistics.
  • Conduct a personal online audit.
  • LinkedIn: optimize profile, search strings using keywords, title, company, skill-set and location, how to connect.
  • Social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, etc).
  • What to say and online to attract recruiters.
  • Selling and marketing of you, would you hire you?
  • Creating, using and supporting a network.
  • Company source of hire, where do recruiters find candidates.
  • Finding a job is a job and a contact sport.
  • Where to find job postings.
  • What are these hidden jobs people talk about, how do you find them?
  • Research companies, decision-makers, hiring managers and recruiters.
  • Email: what to say.
  • Follow up: when and how often.


Afterward, he plans to answer as many questions as possible.


DeBettignies' bio says he is managing partner of Nerd Search, a Minneapolis IT search firm, co-Founder and coordinator of Minnesota Recruiters, so he ought to have some valuable information for job-seeking IT pros.
