Recruiter Training Program

live training webinars every week

 unlimited Sessions for just $99/month


REcruiters need training

but they're too busy for training...

You need a flexible alternative that works for your team. It has to be high quality training that fits into your schedule. And it has to work for the experienced and the newbie. We can do that.   


We built a subscription model that trains recruiters on live requirements, without taking your entire workforce off the phones.

How it Works

The Recruiting Worklab is a training system for recruiters that improves your sourcing, messaging, and management of candidates. 

Each week, members send in open positions. We train on all phases of the hiring process, from sourcing and contact to interviews and salary negotiation. And it's all live.     

Every Monday, from 1-2:30 pm CST, a host and a speaker demonstrate the best methods to solve your recruiting problems.
That’s right - we’re going on the hot seat and putting our reputation on the line to make sure you get the freshest, most relevant training in the industry.

It's an incredible value

Monthly billing for the worklab is just $99 a month.

$99 gets you a private registration each week to access the worklab and access to all of our products and content. Upon registration, we'll send you a welcome package on the best ways to use your membership and will follow up with a call to understand your specific needs. 

This is simply the best value of any training dollar you can spend. Consistent improvement over time allows you to measure changes in performance. And one membership can be spread out among multiple recruiters. 

$99 for 6 full hours of live training a month. That's just one job posting, one box lunch, or one recruiter license to always have access to training. 

There are no long-term contracts. There is no premium package where the real work is done. It’s just $99 a month. 

Feeling adventurous? Do you like discounts? Buy the full year, and you’ll pay just $989, a savings of over $200!'s time to decide

That was the best use of money in ages! Jim Durbin is an awesome presenter! Definitely learned a lot! I was writing names down as fast as I could.
— Susan L.

Think of Jim Durbin as the recruiting industry’s Seth Godin. Nicknamed the “social media headhunter,” his core competency is working with digital natives in marketing and technology.
— David Perry, author of Executive Recruiting for Dummies and Hiring Greatness

I closed a $45,000 placement with a brand new client after learning Jim’s specific methods of sourcing and name generation. His insight has proven consistently valuable to my business and I owe him a portion of my success in retained search.
— Richard Moore, Impact Direct Search
Jim’s attentiveness and dedication as a headhunter were evident when he helped me land my first “true” job in social media. From meeting with me to understand my strengths and career goals to coaching me through the interview and following up afterward, it was clear that Jim respected the clients who hired him and the job seekers he coached.
— Laura S.

Jim has been a fantastic mentor. Early in my career, Jim trained me on the key components of sourcing and screening. Over the course of two years, as the positions I worked on grew more complex, he continued to provide me with new tools and tactics that matched my experience.
— John C.

Jim is willing to go out of his way to assist people with their job hunt. I wasn’t even a candidate that could work with Jim, but he still provided guidance several times and responded to any questions I had promptly. This conveys a lot about Jim’s character. Jim has been very helpful and I highly recommend him.

Take a journey with our team

There's a joke here about a train. We're not going to tell it. And we're certainly not going to ask if you are…

wait for it... 

on the right track...


Looks like you have a decision to make.

I’ll make it fun for you: You've read this far, and I don’t want you to go away empty handed. If you are sure that you don’t want to sign up...

Let me give you a gift. I’ll send you a survey. Just five questions. Answer it and I’ll send you either the LinkedIn Search Guide or the Interview Framework Guide.

I should be selling these for $40, but instead I’m giving them to you because I want you to be successful, and I think this will help.

Follow this link to the survey then we'll send you the PDF. No tricks. No asking for you to sign up. Just a thank you for reading, and two minutes of feedback.
