Technology may be intimidating to the HR professional who has spent years learning the ropes to deliver quality candidates that meet a variety of requirements. Many times, these individuals have joined the HR department through the Staffing and Recruiting world or are aiming to become true HR generalists. But regardless of the career stage they are in, it is almost impossible to be successful without incorporating new technology tools. During this session, we will share best practices on achieving desired results through cutting edge technology, and discuss the concept of opening doors to connect with great candidates that are hard to reach. It’s no secret that super star candidates are more passive in in perusing new employment opportunities. This webinar will include real-life advice on how to adopt new ways of introducing candidates to job opportunities and making important connections early in the recruitment process and using a “virtual handshake.”
Social media has become a part of our daily lives. And social media recruitment is at an all-time high.

We will move beyond the basics of Facebook and Twitter and address each of the major social media channels, plus a few niche social media sites, as well. Attendees will walk away with actionable insight into how to create and manage an effective social media recruiting strategy.
The talent acquisition game has significantly changed. With an abundance of candidates to choose from…how do you find the right “fit”?

Professionals, who play a role in the development or acquisition of talent will gain a significant understanding of how to quickly diagnose organizational culture and how to determine who the “right fit” is.

LinkedIn remains the main site that almost every recruiter is using on a daily basis. In my own recruiting practice we are consistently finding that about 80% of placed candidates come from an initial contact on LinkedIn. “The” business network offers advanced search capabilities and convenient methods of business interactions, especially designed for recruiters.
While the ways to use LinkedIn do not require any special technical knowledge, they are not used by the majority of recruiters. This presentation will open up unexplored possibilities and will help the audience to use LinkedIn to its full capacity and to find top candidates that others won’t.
