In the past year, Advisor Group has made significant updates to their career site. We recently spoke with Leigh McCluskey, Senior Vice President of Talent Acquisition for Advisor Group, to learn about the important elements of an effective career site for one of the nation’s largest networks of independent wealth management firms.

When you began thinking about updating your career site, what were the goals you set for yourself and Advisor Group? What were some of the “must-haves” for you?

Once again, several members of the NAS team attended the HR Technology Conference & Exposition last week in Las Vegas. We saw lots of familiar faces, met many new people and learned a ton. Here are some of the highlights:

Keynote Address
The keynote address was delivered by Barbara Corcoran, investor and judge on ABC’s Shark Tank, who shared her secrets for success in a highly charged, very personal narrative of her storied career. She shared her five key lessons on building a successful business, which namely involves focusing on the power of your brand. Corcoran was able to build a brand from essentially nothing by pushing boundaries on advertising, thinking outside of the box, keeping employee satisfaction a priority and positioning her business (purposefully or by mistake) as the elite – and it paid off when she sold her company, The Corcoran Group, for an astounding $66 million.
