Digital Profiles: The New Résumé: How To Search Online Profiles For Recruitment Success
|Date / Time:
Is the traditional résumé dead? It may not have fully disappeared yet, but its importance seems to be waning.
Nowadays, savvy hiring managers are finding that the best source of information about job candidates’ qualifications can often be their LinkedIn profiles, what they post, comment on, or blog about, and the social media groups to which they belong.
Today’s sophisticated jobseekers understand that they’ll be “checked out” online, so they are likely to establish searchable profiles to attract employers. In fact, the latest advice to jobseekers is to make sure that they have a good online presence to show off their skills, work history, and passions.
Make sure you know how to find and evaluate this valuable online intelligence.
Join us to find out how employers are using accessible online profiles to determine whether to hire job applicants and what legal and practical pitfalls you’ll encounter if you kick traditional, paper résumés to the recruiting curb.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
