How does the recruiting work?
The recruiting at the SEAK conference is much different than just having an exhibiting booth (like most other conferences).  On the 1st day of the conference, we bring each recruiting company in front of the attendees to introduce their company, what jobs they are hiring for, specific physician specialties they are looking for, etc..  Following that, we take a short break from the conference and the attendees signup for one-on-one appointments with the recruiting companies, that they are interested in speaking with.

We provide the recruiting companies with signup sheets and the attendees have the opportunity to sign up for individual one-on-one, 15 minute meetings with our recruiting companies.  You are essentially doing on-site mini interviews while at the conference!  Many attendees bring their CV with them to the conference. This setup allows the recruiting companies to quickly and efficiently meet with large numbers of interested/motivated physician attendees.
