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 exactly how you and your team can get ready for what’s coming down the road and equip you for action.

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.

A Reality Check For Recruiters, From Candidates  (Jason Buss)
So many companies and recruiting professionals talk about candidate experience, career sites, interview best practices, best-in-class onboarding and more. Here’s a chance to hear from 4 recently Twin Cities-based hired employees who were just candidates on their take about these and other relevant recruiting-related topics.

Curious about why someone will reply to one InMail but not another? Or what kind of research is being done on your interview team and company? Jason Buss, VP of Talent Acquisition will moderate a do-not-miss panel and open-ended questions from you!

Make It. MSP. (Matt Lewis)
Over 150 companies, cities, universities, and nonprofits across the Minneapolis-Saint Paul region came together in 2015 to launch a new effort to retain and attract the world’s best workforce.  That initiative – Make It. MSP.  – is now generating original insight on key talent segments (e.g. professionals of color, tech, newcomers to the region) and new tools to help recruiters sell this metro to prospective talent.  Peter Frosch, one of the creators and leaders of this initiative, will provide attendees with an overview of the work and put these new tools in your hands.
