ADJ Recruiting Mixer

After hand selecting your most flattering shot and lovingly editing every single one, photographer Erik Binggeser has released all of your stunning headshots from the last ADJ Recruiting Mixer. December is all booked up, but he’s taking appointments for January if you and/or your team are ready to get SHOT (wait, that sounds bad… but you get it…).

He has very generously offered you all full license to your image so you can use your headshot online as your profile picture anywhere, so please do (you look great)!

I legitimately have no clue how he made us look good standing against a sterile, boring wall, but he DID. That’s what I call talent. Or magic. Or sorcery. I’m not going to ask, though.

And if you didn’t get a chance to tip while you were at the event (we know, it started sprinkling, many of us ran away), it’s not too late – click here!

ADJ AMA: Ask the Recruiter Anything [replay]

If you missed the live session last week, the ADJ AMA was bonkers – we learned so much and our guest debunked a LOT of “common knowledge!”

Published

If you weren’t able to make the live event, there’s good news – we recorded it for you!

Michele Olivier is a partner at O&H Consulting which offers recruiting and career coaching services. She’s a vetted badass and blew my mind in so many ways during the hour and a half we spent together.

Apparently a lot of what I’ve been told is wrong, which means a lot of what you have been told is also wrong!

We chat about the application robots, recruiters, how it all works, and how it has all changed. Get up to speed by listening to the AMA (Ask Me Anything), but beware – there are curse words, so maybe listen with headsphones on!

Pro tip: Michele’s bio and social media links are all listed below the video!
