Keynote: Fundamental Changes in the Recruiting World

Matt Charney – Chief Content Editor, Allegis Group and Executive Editor, RecruitingDaily


There's a lot of buzz (and even more buzzwords) out there in recruiting and talent acquisition today. But should you believe the hype? This session will break through the buzzwords, BS and B2B marketing and take a look at what real recruitment marketing professionals really need to know to survive - and thrive - in the ever changing world of work. We'll take a look at the talent technology industry landscape as well as VC, M&A and valuation trends and what those mean for the market - and for the end users of these emerging solutions. This session will also break down the top talent trends every recruiting expert needs to know, taking a deep dive into macroeconomic, labor market and academic data to discover what problems recruitment marketing pros need to solve for to do today to get ready to win the top talent of tomorrow - and get a step ahead of the competition.

Finally, we'll take a look at some of the top tools and specific solutions that highlight some of the ways that the talent technology of tomorrow is already living up to its potential to reshape the way recruiters find candidates, and candidates find companies (and some low and no cost sourcing and marketing hacks, too). This session will have no ulterior motives, no company case studies or covert content marketing - just tips and tricks real recruitment marketers can really use. For reals.
