AMWA Southeast Chapter Education Webinar: “Is this REAL? Ask a recruiter and discuss the use of recruiters for med writing roles”

You won’t want to miss our next our March Education Webinar: Is this REAL? Ask a recruiter and discuss the use of recruiters for medical writing roles

If you’re active on LinkedIn, you might have received a message with a proposition for a job… from a complete stranger. Many medical writers have expressed confusion over how this exchange works. In reality, few resources are available to provide insight into the process that leads to that initial email (and after, should you move forward) and what benefits working with a recruiter from a firm may have (compared to freelancing directly with the client).

For this reason… we have brought a subject matter expert to AMWA SE’s Open Webinar and are allowing a free-flow of information to ensure any questions attendees may have are answered and that the role recruiters do play is fully explained.

Chloe Cummins is a Senior Consultant for Med Writing Contracts at Real Staffing.

Real Life Sciences is part of Specialist Staffing Group, the US division of the leading global specialist STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) recruitment company, SThree PLC. Operating in 16 countries, Specialist Staffing Group is home to over 3,000 employees and has more than 46 offices across the globe.
