How is this different?
This isn’t your typical recruiting conference.
- It’s 100% focused on tech. You won’t learn how to hire sales people, accountants, or customer service. All tech.
- We’re hearing from tech/engineering leaders! Not just recruiting pros – which is critical – but also engineering leaders who push and partner with their recruiting teams to recruit world class talent.
- It’s advanced – we’re assuming you know the basics of good recruiting already. So our speakers are being asked to challenge us to go beyond the foundational elements that are typically covered at recruiting conferences.
- The agenda is being built by tech recruiting pros for tech recruiting pros.
- No squishy balls or yo-yos. Yes, we’ll have the opportunity to meet reps from some hand-picked exhibitors and sponsors, but they are banned from doing the trick-or-treat conference bag thing.
