CREATING THE OPTIMAL CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE

Full Day

8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Presented by: Ira S Wolfe

Qualified candidates are an elusive, shrinking, moving target. The time it takes to fill key positions is increasing, and cost-per-hire is rising. And yet most organizations continue to greet prospective employees with a friction-filled application, and cold disconnected candidate experience. During this workshop, participants will get hands-on experience from a recruitment marketing expert and SHRM National presenter from posting the job to building a mobile-friendly application.
