Recruiting In The Digital Age: New Online Profile Elements To Help You Size-Up Star Talent
|Date / Time:
The days when the résumé and cover letter were the gold standard in recruiting are long gone. Recruiters today have the benefit of getting a much more dynamic, 360-degree view of potential candidates via their online profiles.
Whether through Twitter feeds, LinkedIn profiles, Facebook, Instagram, or their own personal websites and blogs, a candidate’s hard and soft skills can become readily apparent to recruiters.
There is plenty of advice out there for jobseekers when it comes to what should and shouldn’t be in your online profile, but, what about advice for recruiters? How should you be using this ever-expanding pipeline of candidate of information most effectively?
A recent survey by Jobvite found that while 94 percent of recruiters use LinkedIn as a major source of candidates, only 26 percent of jobseekers are active on the site. How do you make sure you’re not overlooking a superstar candidate who may just not be paying attention to his or her LinkedIn information? How do you best distill the information and the clues about a potential candidate’s success that are just waiting to be discovered in their online profiles?
Join us for a hands-on, tactical look at how recruiters can effectively and efficiently size up a candidate using the latest online profile elements. Kelly Dingee, director of strategic recruiting at Staffing Advisors, will reveal the top 5 things you need to do right now to source top candidates through online profiles.

|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.
