We’ve invited a panel of Senior HR Managers from large Halton Region tech companies to help you learn about the employer side of HR. The format is a Q&A interactive style panel, moderated by Bob Nagar and Rick Stomphorst.
People change jobs every 3 years (approx), translating into 400+ Silicon Halton members who may change jobs this year.
This Q&A panel presents you with an opportunity to learn what employers look for and how to be prepared to succeed in getting a job. What do you wish the employer would ask you during an interview? Vise versa, do you know which questions company’s wish you would ask and not ask?
All the panelists are in hiring mode. There will be an opportunity before and after the Q&A to meet with participating companies. Bring your resume!
If you're unable to attend but still wish to provide input, we want to hear from you! The 5-question survey is online here (closed).
Pressed for time? Take the abbreviated 2-question multiple-choice survey here (closed).
