Panel Session:

Recruiting Trends 2012

How do we find the signal in all of the noise? In this session, we will see over the horizon: What are the trends we need to pay attention to versus the sparks that are simply distractions. What are the time horizons for each; what will be the impact, what is the urgency? See beyond the hype of current and future trends, the truly cutting edge best practices, and bigger trends to gain key insights on: Mobile. Video. LinkedIn. FaceBook, Twitter and others.

With a focus on the practical, this session will provide you with the insights and tactics you need today, in order to be prepared for tomorrow.

With Jason Warner, Yves Lermusi, Linda Brenner, & Kortney Kutsop
