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." Her website AbsolutelyAbby.com was selected as one of the "Top 100 Websites for Your Career" by Forbes. Since 2012, Abby has been on a mission to help one million job seekers and is currently driving around the USA on a nationwide tour to accomplish that goal.

Abby will be presenting:

"Secrets Recruiters Don’t Want You to Know"

Abby, a seasoned recruiter, will take you behind the scenes and provide you with secret insights into the human resources and recruiting process. During this presentation, you will gain insight into what HR recruiters look for when they are evaluating your qualifications. In 2016, you must do more than applying on job boards. There are far more candidates applying for the same positions, so you have to differentiate yourself. You will learn:

  • How to think like a recruiter 
  • What to write in your cover letter and why you need one 
  • Why keywords really matter and how to choose them 
  • Secrets about thank you letters 
  • How to impress a recruiter on the phone 
  • How to handle salary questions on the phone and on an application

Success for the Seasoned Search...The Benefit of Being.

BENG Atlanta Chapter

Members Helping Members

Peter Frost, President of BENG, said networking is critical as job searching strategies and career transition continues to change in this economy. “Those in transition can no longer rely on job search engines to fuel their search, they need to continuously build a network and stay connected to that network,” explains Frost. “Most new members begin to realize all of the networking contacts they let go during years of secure employment and they’re encouraged to become career networkers.”

Business Executives Networking Group "BENG is a non profit organization providing mid to senior level professionals seeking employment, with a forum that will facilitate their job search and enhance their networking skills. This multidiscipline, independent group of mid-to senior-level professionals contains job seekers and employed members and business owners. BENG provides employment information, opportunities for networking, emotional support and tools to accelerate their members job search. We rely upon the spirit of generosity and cooperation of our members, whether in transition or employed, to accomplish this mission."
