If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

Global Diversity CFP Day

Saturday 3rd February was Global Diversity CFP Day. It was a day to help underrepresented groups with talk topics and proposal writing. Workshops were held all around the world. The Sydney chapter was led by Kris Howard and a group of mentors from the Sydney community (including myself) was there to help out.

On the day, we went through a short video on how to write a talk proposal, then divided the room into two groups: those with a talk idea started working on their abstract, and those without worked on coming up with a few ideas.

We also had a short session on how to write a bio, with some excellent tips from experienced speakers. As it’s often difficult to write about ourselves, people were paired up to interview each other and then came up with a bio about the other person. What a great idea!

Towards the end, anyone with a talk idea was encouraged to share it with the room. I was truly impressed by all of them!

As a meetup organiser, one of the hardest job is getting speakers. I really hope the workshop has given people some useful takeaways and that I’ll see their talks at a meetup or conference in the near future!
