November Breakout Sessions
Jocelyn Hodack: Effective Use of Recruiters
You’re looking for a new position. One that will utilize your talents and challenge you to do more, become more. And you want to work for a company whose culture and values match yours. But searching through hundreds of job postings, submitting résumé after résumé, and following up with employers are time-consuming tasks. Let a professional recruiter do the leg work for you. Professional recruiters will match your skills and experience to available jobs and market your talents to potential employers. You just have to be prepared to interview and sell yourself.
Joy Chapman: How to Apply for the Advanced Tax Credit and Shop for Health Insurance on the Marketplace
Overwhelmed by all the confusion about signing up for health insurance and the new tax credit? Joy will explain the 2-step process to apply for the Advanced Tax Credit and then how to select an insurance carrier and plan. She will explain how working with a Licensed Health Insurance Enrollment Agent to guide you through the process is easier, more reliable and provides direct answers to your questions regarding the ACA, rather than navigating healthcare.gov on your own or the call center confusion.

Ken Soper: Employee Referral: An Employer's Best Talent Acquisition Tactic
