Fall 2015 Panel Preview: How to go from Pesky Recruiter to Trusted Resource

By Danielle Boykin

What do you know now, that you wish you had known when you first started out in your career?  Couldn’t we all benefit from the insight of someone more senior than us when we were just starting out???  That’s why I’m so excited to lead a panel discussion at recruitDC’s upcoming Fall event to focus on How to go from Pesky Recruiter to Trusted Resource! 

Please join me, along with Henry Addo from pureIntegration, and Chrissie Hendrickson from Special Counsel, as we share our stories and experiences, what we’ve learned and what we’re still trying to figure out, what we’ve done wrong and our biggest lessons learned! 

Collectively our panel has more than 35 years of hands-on recruiting experience across the IT, finance and accounting, sales, and legal industries.  This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and have an open dialogue with some of DC’s recruiting superheroes!  So whether you are just starting out in recruiting, or are more senior and simply looking for a fresh perspective on the day to day, please come check us out on November 19th at recruitDC! 

For Tickets, please visit recruitDC's Eventbrite page.

Danielle Boykin is currently a Recruiting Manager with Robert Half, focusing on providing Finance, Accounting, and Operational talent for permanent roles with clients across the DC metro region.  With 15+ years of recruiting and sales experience, Danielle has done everything from corporate recruiting to staffing, from temporary to direct hire, and focusing on roles in the administrative, healthcare, sales & recruiting, and finance & accounting fields.  Danielle has built a considerable network of professionals that she relies heavily on for her recruiting needs, and she’s become known in some circles as “the one to know” when you decide to conduct a job search!  She’s excited to have the opportunity to partner with recruitDC to talk about her journey from being a pesky recruiter, to a trusted partner!

Chrissie Hendrickson has been in the recruiting game in DC for the last nine years.  Initially her focus was sourcing and placing high-level executive support staff for rainmakers in DC while she worked at TRAK Services.  She built a network such that, by a few years in to her tenure there, 85% of the candidates she placed were a result of direct referrals. Two years ago, Chrissie took on a role with TRAK’s parent company, Special Counsel, where she now travels around the country advising and training internal colleagues on direct-hire placement, now in the legal field. Chrissie has learned – both the hard way and the easy way – how to avoid being perceived as some pesky, sales-y, in-it-for-herself recruiter, and instead enjoys the perception (most of the time) as a trusted advisor to both her candidates and her clients.

Henry Addo’s career spans over 15 years of consulting, staffing and talent management.  He has specialized primarily in hiring solutions-driven professionals with backgrounds in technology, digital, marketing, business process, and creative.  Henry is well known for his 6 years of recruiting with Profiles, and most recently joined pureIntegration, a business integration company focused on providing customers with bold solutions to their critical business problems.  Henry’s reputation for providing a first class candidate experience is well known in the DC area, and that’s why he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share more about how he does just that at recruitDC’s Fall event!
