Join Absolutely Abby and PSGMC at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18, to “go under cover” to gain insight into what HR recruiters really look for when they are evaluating your qualifications. Abby Kohut, who is known in the job search world as Absolutely Abby, is the President of Staffing Symphony, LLC and author of "Absolutely Abby's 101 Job Search Secrets." 

Take a backstage look at the recruiting world - a view that you have never seen before and will never see again. You will learn:

  • When wearing the color yellow can help you get an offer;
  • When you should and should not mention the Chicago Cubs during an interview;
  • Deep dark secrets about why keywords really matter and how to choose them;
  • Why you should avoid a swivel chair and the fishy handshake during an interview. 

There are other secrets. For example, did you know that HR spies may take a peek at the clutter in your car while you are in an interview? That piece of paper lying in the stairwell might have been put there on purpose. Oh...and if the recruiter says that it's OK for you to take notes, find out why they might be confiscated at the end of the interview. Perhaps your body language is speaking in foreign tongues.
