Post Recession Recruitment - What Now?

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

A discussion from experts in online recruitment, online branding, and social networking about how looking for a job has changed. The panel will consist of agency recruiters, company recruiters, advisers and job seekers to give attendees an in-depth understanding of what each party in the equation is doing differently today and how it might effect them. The panel will describe how things have changed from years past: how new graduates and those entering the work force have much different expectations that those more experienced; how employers are now looking more for fit rather than pure skill set; how the role of recruiters has changed and how job seekers themselves need to take a much more active role in managing their job search.

We’ll discuss innovative solutions to particular issues within the technology and interactive space but focus on providing detail on how recruitment has changed and suggest some tools, technologies and solutions that exist for job seekers, employers and recruiters.
