#socialrecruiting Summit Coming to NYC

srs-logoIt is my privilege to be the chairperson for the upcoming #socialrecruiting summit on November 16th in New York City.

I was lucky enough to speak at the last event in June at the Googleplex where I shared a venue with thought-leaders such as Joshua Kahn, Shannon Seery Gude, and Chis Hoyt. We made the case for using social networking tools and platforms, and we discussed the growing importance of these tools in our roles as recruiters and HR professionals. Our sessions covered topics such as mobile recruiting applications, employee brand management and monitoring, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and enhanced career websites.

As the chairperson for the next #socialrecruiting summit, it is my goal to bring a community of recruiting professionals together to discuss the real-world applicability of social recruiting.

Our speakers and our audience will be encouraged to deconstruct the hype, understand how social media tools play a role in the recruiting lifestyle, and think about the possibilities as new and emerging technology comes to the forefront.

Most importantly, we will talk about what’s working and cast aside those tools and processes that fail us. We will name names, learn from the best, and leave broken and outmoded technology in the dust.

The #socialrecruiting summit on November 16th will be about exploring and expanding the idea of social recruiting. We will shoot for the stars and break new ground in thinking about technology, candidate engagement, and the future of our industry.

I hope to see you there.
