    What are recruiters looking for? Join us to find out or come to share your insight and experiences.

    Our October discussion facilitator will share important tips for how to prepare for your next opportunity. We'll take a look at what job seekers can and should be doing, and what recruiters should be looking for when seeking new talent for their companies. 

    About the discussion facilitator: 

    Shaw Skurnick has been involved with HR/Recruiting/Onboarding/Sales for over 10 years. He was part of the onboarding team as a contractor with IBM from 2004-05. He moved on in late 2005/2006 to be a recruiting and staffing account manager for Guardsmark Security (now Allied Barton) from 2005 -2011. He also did sales at New York Life, AFLAC as well as office space rentals for a startup online university, Dulles University from 2011-2015.

    His journey back to recruiting came about in 2015 when Dulles University went out of business. He is very passionate about National Security and after listening to a discussion downtown on National Defense, he was able to crystalize his search which in his case was doing recruiting for a DoD contractor, which he has been doing since the summer of 2016 for Advanced Concepts & Technologies International, LLC (ACT-1), ACT-1 is a rapidly growing DoD contractor, most known for its work with the F-35 Joint Strikefighter as well as other DoD and DHS Contracts.

    Shaw is married to his wife Angela of 8 years, and they have 4 1/2 year old twin children, Zachary and Hannah, who keep them quite occupied.
