June 2017 Career Conference Results & Testimonials

The Cameron-Brooks team, client companies, and candidates have just completed the June 2017 Career Conference and have traveled home safely to their respective towns, cities, bases and posts.  We are now actively working on the follow-up process with candidates traveling to visit companies for second interviews and many candidates will be traveling to visit companies as early as this coming Monday.   It was a very busy but productive Career Conference with over 615 interviews conducted with an average of 13.3 interviews and a pursuit rate of nearly 61%.   The pursuit rate is defined as the number of interviews in which the candidates achieved success divided by the total number of their interviews.   Achieving success in an interview at the Career Conference simply means the companies expressed interest in moving forward in the interview process with the candidate.   So, for this Conference, the candidates converted just above 8.1 of those 13.3 interviews into a successful interview.

There were 30+ distinct companies attended but several companies had multiple divisions attend.  Additionally, there were several new companies attending in addition to some long standing Cameron-Brooks client companies.  The size of the companies attending varied from several smaller privately held companies to the largest company on the most recent FORTUNE 500 list.

Some of the client companies represented at the June Career Conference included the following:
