Session Descriptions:

The State of Talent Acquisition (Johnny Campbell)
Diving into the results of Social Talent’s third, annual global recruiting survey, Johnny will highlight the leading trends in sourcing, recruiting and talent acquisition. And as important, he’ll show how you and your team can get ready for what’s coming down the road.

Building Personas for Relational Recruiting  (Maren Hogan)
Artificial intelligence. Big Data. Sourcing Engines. Automated Sourcing. All of these things are fantastic, but is there something that can change your relationship with candidates? Yes, and it’s surprisingly old school. Maren Hogan will talk you through building your talent pipeline, focusing on candidate personas before every picking up the phone or typing an InMail, building out editorial content for your future employees and meeting them where they are. You’ll leave with email templates, an editorial calendar, and content funnel to fill up and a sample persona to get you started.
