Have you ever used an ordinary phone book to call a CEO at home – and gotten referrals from his wife?
Are you familiar with Web 2.0 technology and its power as a recruiting tool?

Have you used LinkedIn to find likely candidates?
How about “stunt” recruiting, like using the release of Halo as a way of connecting with techies?

Those are just a few examples of the kind of unconventional (but effective!) recruiting tips and techniques you’ll take away from this eye-opening interactive seminar.

Designed to provide you with successful but little known “guerrilla” tactics, this event will make you something of a magician at sourcing, boost your career, and best of all, get results!

A glance at the faculty listed above tells you that Recruiting Trends’ Jeanne Sturges has brought together a team of true experts for this event all heavy hitters with deep experience in these special techniques for sourcing difficult categories of candidates.

Sponsored by LinkedIn, this interactive seminar is FREE for you and your entire recruiting team.
