TMG consultant Nicolette Kuba Hurd participated in an executive recruiter panel discussion at UMD Smith School of Business, held at the Greenbelt Marriott on March 3. The event was organized by and for Smith School of Business’ Executive MBA (EMBA) community and addressed how to work with executive search firms — from an organizational point of view as well as a candidate’s perspective.

The panel, followed by Q & A and a networking reception, discussed what to expect when working with an executive search firm; to what extent using an executive search firm can propel companies and candidates forward; the makings of a great candidate; and how an executive search firm can help organizations and candidates move beyond the boundaries of job-specific experience (a parameter of the 20th century)  towards the untapped potential of talent (the preeminent parameter of the 21st century) to create healthy, forward-oriented organizations comprised of the right people to master the challenges organizations are now facing.

The panel was moderated by Rachel Loock, the Associate Director of EMBA Career Coaching, Programming, and Outreach at the Smith School of Business Office of Career Services.
