Recruiting Innovation Summit at Facebook HQ

It was an honor to speak at Facebook. My session, "Innovative Recruiting in a Conservative Corporate Environment", gave me an opportunity to share insights regarding my social media role at Waste Management and some of the lessons that I have learned thus far.

Here is a link to the PowerPoint presentation and slides:Innovative Recruiting In A Conservative Corporate Environment at Facebook HQ - Jenny DeVaughn

Thank you to Lance Haun, David Manaster, Kate Wilson, Amy Berry, Brendan Shields, Susan Strayer, Richard Cho, Matt Millunchick, the other speakers, sponsors, my colleagues and onsite/virtual attendees for their support.

Three Recruiting Conferences That You Must Attend

Most of us in recruiting and social media have a limited travel budget, several ongoing responsibilities and other time constraints.

Here are three events that you cannot afford to miss this year:

1. mRecruitingcamp in San Francisco, CA - September 30, 2011
This conference's Founder, Michael Marlatt, has been an innovative mobile leader for many years now. I remember when I first heard Michael speak at an ERE event, he was revolutionary. On September 30th, mRecruitingcamp will make its industry changing debut as the world’s first comprehensive mobile recruiting conference for HR and recruiting professionals. The lineup of speakers is second-to-none and I'm honored be the emcee. Registration to the event includes a step-by-step guide on mobile recruitment strategies and campaigns. Sign up here: http://www.mrecruitingcamp.com/register.

2. LinkedIn Talent Connect 2011 in Las Vegas, NV - October 17-19, 2011
Last year, I was able to attend the inaugural LinkedIn Talent Connect event. The technical and logistical aspects of the conference were exceptional. LinkedIn provided a variety of networking events and surprises to keep us engaged. The keynote speakers were inspirational. There are also four different learning tracks now, so the content should be even more relevant. Contact your LinkedIn representative for more info or visit http://talentconnect.linkedin.com/pricing-registration.

3. Recruiting Innovation Summit at Facebook in Menlo Park, CA - October 24, 2011
Formerly known as the Social Recruiting Summit, this is the ERE event that showcases emerging recruiting trends. I'm excited to be a speaker and also to visit the new Facebook's brand new campus at Menlo Park, CA. In the past, the networking at this event has been top notch, since it usually has a good mix of new attendees and industry favorites. The early bird pricing is in effect until August 26th: http://recruitinginnovationsummit.com/fb2011/register.

By strategically attending conferences, you invest in yourself and build beneficial relationships in person. Maximize your time while you are at these events to get the most out of them for you and your organization. Hope to see you there!


Infographic: The Tech Talent Wars

Udemy just posted this infographic regarding the tech talent wars. The accompanying blog post states, "Hiring a great team is the #1 most important thing you’ll ever do for your company. Are you ready? Do you know where to find amazing co-founders or how to lure away those rock star MIT computer science majors who were just offered $300,000 to work for Google?"

What is your company doing to retain this talent as well?



Risk More to Gain More in 2010

Today, I'm honored to join an amazing team of people at Bernard HODES Group as the Director, Social Strategy. It has been a wonderful first day thanks to my new colleagues, due in a large part to leaders like Kevin Hensley, Vince Vitti and Shannon Seery Gude. I'm humbled by the article about my new opportunity with HODES that was written by John Zappe and published today in the ERE Daily.

Of course, I'll keep on blogging under Social Precision. Please continue to reach out to me for speaking engagements, conferences, on-site training, webinars and step-by-step workshops.

Here is the slide deck for my presentation at the TAG Recruiting Society meeting tonight in Atlanta:

Follow your true career passions. Risk more to gain more in 2010!



Using Facebook to Identify and Recruit Talent

Facebook has over 350 million users from over 70 countries. Many companies are not effectively recruiting from Facebook and are missing out on its massive traffic.

This is a copy of my slide deck from my webinar: Using Facebook to Identify and Recruit Talent. You can also search the tweets with the webinar's hashtag: #FBrecruit.
