November 2022 Career Conference Results

The final 2022 Conference has now concluded, and just two days post-conference we are already onto the follow-up process!  The follow-up process will consist of a mix of virtual and in-person interviews with companies where there was mutual interest in moving forward in the interview process, with the average number of days from Career Conference to offer acceptance being just 12.2 working days!  So, for the next two to three weeks, the candidates will be involved in the follow-up interview process, earning offers and then launching their new careers.  All of us at Cameron-Brooks want to give a very sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of the candidates and client companies who decided to partner with us.

So what were the statistics?

We had 38 candidates, 42 distinct companies, and 48 different hiring groups attend the conference.  Additionally, 30 Cameron-Brooks alumni returned to recruit and find top JMO talent for their organizations.

The candidates conducted over 440 interviews, with an average of 11.7 interviews per candidate!  The pursuit rate for this Career Conference was 78.4%, the second highest in the history of Cameron-Brooks!!  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 candidates got over the “bar” set by our client companies, and the companies expressed interest in moving forward with the candidate.

So, we are off to a fantastic start in helping our candidates with their career transition and pivot from successful military leaders to successful business leaders.

Interested in exploring your options with Cameron-Brooks?  Curious about how to make a successful transition? Check out our website, YouTube Channel and follow us on LinkedIn.  Additionally, our latest podcast (Episode 160) is with our alum, Chris Parks, who shares his transition journey and discusses how choosing opportunity over location led him to become Director of Sales in just a short 5 years!  You can listen to that podcast here.

Stay tuned!!  On December 5th, I will conduct a post-Career Conference webcast that will include several Conference candidates.  Our alumni will share their experiences, recommendations, and answer your questions. Soon we’ll post registration information on our website’s webcast page.

And finally, I want to honor all service members on this Veteran’s Day of 2022.  It has been our honor and privilege to work so closely with our nation’s service members for over 50 years. From everyone at Cameron-Brooks, thank you for your service.
