Monthly Chapter Meeting

Session Title:  Proactive Hiring: Get Out and Make Some Friends!

  Thanks to our Sponsor:  Dave and Busters

Date:  Wednesday, June 14, 2017 (11:30 AM - 1:30 PM) - Live Webcast Also Available

Session Overview: 

Help wanted signs and Internet job boards are no longer the ideal hiring strategy. Too reactive, these strategies keep churning up the same candidates looking for a job.

Proactive hiring is easier said than done. Maybe you think you are already being proactive. What does it really mean? Why should you care?

You need this session if you think you are already being proactive – you could be wrong or you could do more. You don’t want to miss the best talent match because you are not looking in the right places or you are waiting for the right candidate to find you, do you?

Let’s turn the talent acquisition model upside down by using social media resources to build relationships in addition to posting or searching. Let’s have candidates waiting in the wings because they think your company is just the greatest and they want to work for you!

We will look at ways to use social media to build relationships with candidates you don’t know yet, candidates you might have overlooked or never found with your current recruiting techniques.

Our objectives in this session are to: 1) Plan which positions are best suited to proactive recruiting, 2) Identify ideal candidates then build and maintain relationships through social media until the time is right, and 3) Consider other measurements to understand whether your talent acquisition strategy works for your organization.
