Miles Parroco, head of recruiting at Eventbrite, will give attendees an overview of what it means to join the team at a startup from a recruiter's perspective. This includes valuable insights both on what an emerging company is looking for in their early hires, the important questions a job seeker should ask potential employers, and how to spot top talent.
The first 30 minutes will be a presentation and activity, the next 30 minutes will be a question and answer period, and in the remaining 90 minutes, Miles and members of his team will be available to work one-on-one with job seekers and recruiters, looking at resumes and answering more specific questions.
- People who are job searching in the startup world, or own a startup and are looking for ways to recruit talent, will get the most out of the experience.
- No prior knowledge is necessary.
What to Bring:
- Job seeker attendees should bring their resumes and something to take notes with.
- Attendees who are recruiting talent should bring a list of their open requisitions and something to take notes with.
