Getting an established job progressive politics can be hard if you don’t have a wide network or understand how many organizations work. Increasingly larger institutions and even smaller ones are using applicant tracking systems and/or Executive Search Firms to identify and screen candidates.
We invited top recruiters who work in Democratic & Progressive politics to give some tips and advice about how to best present your credentials. Recruiters look at talent all day every day. They’ve seen thousands of resumes, they know what employers are looking for and what makes some applicants stand out from the crowd. They talked about resumes, cover letters, applicant tracking systems, networking, references, challenges & opportunities that the pandemic has created, and answered your questions!
Our guests included Britt Cocanour, Managing Director, Search and Recruitment at Grossman Solutions – one of the progressive movement’s premier recruiting firms and Kevin Josephs, ATS Administrator Progressive Turnout Project.
