I have just confirmed my attending the Social Media in Recruitment conference, planned for 22nd April, 2010 in London at the British Library Conference Centre.
Last year, I kinda missed the conference, but it did generate a lot of interest amongst recruiters on the subject of Social Recruiting.
This year promises to be an interesting event, with possibly more insights from speakers and presenters on actual successes from UK companies, that are implementing a Social Recruiting strategy.
The subject areas to be covered at the Conference will include:
- Strategies for using LinkedIn as part of your online recruitment plans.
- Insights from Google to help you recruit using social media.
- How to maximise the use of Facebook pages as a recruitment tool for your company.
- Key strategies for using Twitter effectively in recruitment, including the use of automated tools.
- How online communities can play a part in your social media recruiting strategies.
- The legal issues surrounding social media and employment.
- Social media strategies for Generation Y job seekers.
This year, Ariel Eckstein, Hiring Business Head for EU at LinkedIn will be discussing how LinkedIn can be a part of a company’s Social Media Recruiting strategy. Also presenting will be Luke Mckend, Head of Careers at Google.
I recently had a conversation with Mike Taylor, the conference organizer and he is quite optimistic that this year’s event will attract over 200 attendees, based on the current registration drive.
