You’ve built your brand, and you know how to sell yourself. But what do Hiring Managers, Recruiters and Clients really think of your sales pitch? In many large enterprise organizations, getting past the “screening phase” is the biggest hurdle to getting a project – particularly if you don’t already have existing relationships with the client. In this Q&A style event, Chief Talent Officer Amy O’Donnell shares insights from more than two decades of specialized recruiting experience to give real-life tips about what works (and what doesn’t) when applying for independent consulting projects.
This is our final of a three-part series on building and marketing your brand as an independent professional.
