Virtual Event 

During an economic downturn, it can be challenging to navigate both for job seekers and potential employers. For candidates, the competition is fierce, especially if you are looking to transition from an adjacent industry into the cleantech or sustainability space. For companies looking to hire new talent, weeding through the pool of potential candidates can be overwhelming to manage and the competition for top talent remains frustrating.

Join Paige Carratturo, Founder of Enertech Search Partners and Partner at Cipactil Partners for a fireside chat to discuss the current state of cleantech talent landscape from both the Candidate and Employer perspectives. After the chat, attendees will be offered the opportunity to join two breakout sessions led by Enertech Search Partners’ and Cipactil Partners’ representatives (one for candidates and one for employers) to answer specific questions participants might have.

For employees the fireside chat will cover:

  • ZOOM, the new normal – (Video interview best practices)
  • Follow the Money (Strong cleantech industries to target)
  • Strategic vs. Tactical – How to leverage recruiter partnerships to support the entire arc of your career, not just the one job you want now

For employers the fireside chat will cover:

  • The current state of the Candidate Market – Opportunities and threats for hiring top talent – don’t be fooled by the perceived oversupply of talent
  • Teams in the Post-COVID Paradigm – What you should be investing in now to help extend your runway and optimize productivity
  • Employer Brand – not just for Big Company’s anymore – The importance of managing the candidate experience through the interview process
  • Reinventing the recruiting model – new paradigms that support early-stage companies

This event is limited to 100 attendees and is open to people of all genders. Refunds provided up to 24 hours in advance.
