    In the noisy digital world we inhabit, it's only the personal messages that get heard. Everything else is filtered out. This has made hiring more personal now than ever. This program will offer resources and tactics that work for how to attract better people, by better understanding how candidates think and act when looking for jobs.

    We all have the internet in our pocket—an instant connection to the world. It used to be a pager or a Blackberry—a corporate device. But now it's a PDA—a personal device. We use our smart phones in a more personal way. We research, comment on, and share anything we want. We're untethered from a wall connection, independent of our employers, and more free to be ourselves. American Idol taught us all to be a critic and a reviewer. Social media gave voice to our opinions on hundreds of digital platforms. And Amazon has taught us to be more trusting of anonymous reviewers than of anyone working in an official capacity.

    Amidst this explosion in user generated information, we've all learned to filter out the irrelevant. In the noisy digital world we inhabit, it's only the personal messages that get heard. Everything else is filtered out. That's what made hiring more personal now than ever.

    If you've ever wondered what candidates are thinking these days, or where they are looking for jobs, or wondered how you could attract better people, this program will offer resources and tactics that work. You'll not only see the latest research on candidate behavior, you'll learn with to do about it, right now, on a budget. And once you understand what candidates are doing, you'll be able to organize your recruiting efforts to be more effective.

    Learning objectives:

    In this session, you will learn:

    • What to write in your job advertising to attract better candidates.
    • Where to post your job advertising to reach more people.
    • How you can adapt your hiring practices to be more effective
