With the new year upon us, the IPSB is taking a quick look back at some of our high points from the past year. The Career Workshop at the 2017 Close Protection Conference and was attended by some of the top companies in the EP industry this past December.
The Workshop was well attended and especially popular amongst first-time attendees and those that are in the early stages of their CP careers. In addition to the multiple networking events that took place over the course of the three days, the Workshop allowed attendees to communicate directly with recruitment staff, have their resumes reviewed, receive professional headshots, and interview for a number of new EP positions.
Bianca Hussey of AS Solution stated the Workshop was a success because the AS team was able to give individual attention to more than 100 prospective employees while also taking advantage of the opportunity to increase brand awareness for AS Solution.
GardaWorld’s Gary Manning echoed similar sentiments and felt that the Workshop was “a great learning experience,” for companies and attendees alike.
In a relatively short length of time staffers at the Workshop were able to review close to 90 resumes, take over 100 headshots and several of the attendees were offered positions and are preparing to join their new companies!
The IPSB is pleased the Career Workshop at the Close Protection Conference was a success. We look forward to offering even more hiring opportunities for companies and security practitioners at the 2018 Close Protection Conference.
