Job Prospecting and Problem Solving

Job Prospecting and Problem Solving


When you’re looking for a job, it’s helpful to know how to find the people who have the problems you solve, i.e., the jobs you want. For starters, you want to find people who are already in the roles that make sense for you and make a list of the places they work. This is where the research begins.

In this online presentation hosted by AustinUP, Gary O’Neal, founder and CEO of HireFactors, will walk you through a tried-and-true job prospecting process. This process can help you find hidden jobs (ones that are open, but not posted) and find people who know they need to hire, but don’t even have the authority to hire yet. The result? You will not only be at the front of the line, you will start the line.

About the Speaker: Gary O’Neal, founder and CEO of HireFactors, is a recruiting and hiring consultant. He has trained and led high-performance recruiting teams that have made well over 10,000 hires.
