I have been so involved in the planning process I failed to keep people up to date here. Response to the invitation below has been phenomenal. We have space for 100 attendees and have been on a waiting list all week.
The attendee number does not take into account presenters, sponsors, and our Best Buy colleagues. We had to add tables for all of us in order to accommodate the number of requests.
13.5 hours to the beginning of the event...
The Minneapolis Recruiting Unconference:
Online and Real World Networking with the Recruiting Roadshow
Local career and recruiting professionals are partnering with John Sumser, editor of both Recruiting.com and Interbiznet.com, as he starts his ten-city Recruiting Roadshow in Minneapolis.
The Recruiting Roadshow tour and “unconference” style is the first of its kind. It provides an opportunity to learn about successful recruiting strategies, effective industry tools and best practices from local professionals, many of whom speak regularly at national conferences.
What is a “Recruiting Unconference”? Simple, this is an event where you won’t be sitting in an audience listening to people speak. We have volunteers to lead the discussions and speak about their experiences but we want you the attendees to drive the sessions, ask questions, to be involved.
Session topics are:
MySpace, Facebook, and Other Social Network Sites: Best Practices for Recruiters
Blogging as a Recruiting and Employer Branding Tool
”Bringing Sexy Back” To Your Career Website
Learn how to better use social networking sites, blogs, and RSS feeds to attract top talent and passive candidates. Gain insight on recruiting Baby Boomers and Millenials. New and improved ideas on making your corporate career page more effective in attracting active and passive job seeking professionals.
Just as important, this is an opportunity to see old friends and make new ones.
