Everyone is looking for digital talent these days, from established tech firms, startups, advertising agencies to the biggest corporations. The ever-broadening makeup of the attendees of SXSW is a huge indicator of this. There’s a bigger crossover of technology and marketing than ever before. In many ways, we are all looking for the same talent. And it’s not just developers. We look for highly conceptual people who can come up with amazing ideas and inventions. As a result, creative technologists, digital strategists, designers and writers are in high demand. In this panel, recruiters from a variety of firms will discuss who they look for and how they find that talent. How can we improve our pipeline and process? Where are there new places to look? How can the talent make themselves easy to find? Are schools keeping up with the demand? This panel will be for companies and jobseekers alike, a look behind the curtain of how the matchmaking of employer and employee happens.
