  • Maximizing your interview process:  Tips, tricks, interview questions and cutting down time in vetting candidates
  • Retention: Once you have the right people onboard, what are hiring managers doing to retain their staff 

About the Speaker

As an AVP & Branch Manager for Robert Half Technology, Christie Shell has been a “match-maker” for IT Professionals in the DMV area for the past 5 amazing years. She has successfully “matched” and placed over 500 IT Professionals with her clients (some of which are HDI members too!) Her team of dedicated technical recruiters specialize in Infrastructure support professionals (and yes, helpdesk is our bread and butter) and bring her DC, MD and VA’s top talent vetted, interviewed, reference checked and ready to go so that when her clients call, she’s got the right match ready to hit the ground running the next day! So, although Christie will leave “true-love” match-making to Cupid, she strongly believes in helping IT Professionals find a career they’ll love. She was a speaker at the HDI National Conference in 2017 and shared strategies for employee engagement and tips for cultivating a “work happy” culture.

In her free time Christie enjoys watching Ted Talks, attending local Tedx events, spending time with her family, reading (anything Maxwell, Ziglar or Joel Osteen) and supporting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Operation Second Chance. Christie couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the HDI Capital Area Chapter Board as the VP of Membership. She always wishes to extend her sincerest gratitude to the entire chapter for welcoming her with open arms to the family that is HDI.
