Recruitment Networking

This is the area where we connect with each other.  If you are traveling on business, this is a way to meet other recruiting/human resource professionals in your travel city. Since Bill Humbert is a contract recruiter consultant who works nationally, he may run into you at one of these meetings. In his book "RecruiterGuy's Guide to Finding a Job", Bill stressed the importance of networking.

These meetings are a way for us to find out about Recruiting and Human Resource openings. Take advantage of meetings that are held near you to meet other professionals in our industry.

As you may have noticed, we have slightly changed our format. Below the listed meetings are professional associations that have monthly or quarterly meetings that are listed by state. These associations have their meetings listed on their website. For your convenience, you may click through to their site.

If you are aware of other meetings for professional recruiters, please let us know and we will list them.
