Out of the Box Recruitment

You’ve screened the applicants, scheduled interviews and checked references, but finding the most qualified candidate who is a right fit still feels like an uphill battle. Well, have you considered recruitment outside of the proverbial box?  If not, this session is perfect for you. 

An ad in the newspaper or online is great, but how can we as employers get our open positions in front of veterans, candidates without housing and/or those re-entering the job market?  We will have guest speakers from local non-profits to help us learn and understand:

·        How these non-profit organizations obtain their clients

·        What resources are provided to them

·        How employers can connect with them

Each Panelist will discuss the services their organization provides and what additional resources are needed to connect their clients to employers.  Following the discussion, we will have a roundtable discussion about the information provided and discuss how we as human resources professionals can make sure we are tapping into all available resources to find job candidates who are a right fit for our organizations.    

If you are struggling with recruitment and want to change things up a bit, you won’t want to miss this session.
