Recruiting For Start Ups 2012 (Or any Size Company)


Last year I spoke about how the War For Talent was under way in Silicon Valley with some skirmishes in Minneapolis/St Paul.

Now with IT unemployment in MSP at <2% the battle is on.

This year we are going to talk about:

Career/Jobs page: you have one, right?

Job posts: because yours suck, right?

Creating talent pools: you are being proactive, right?

Employer branding: do your potential employees know who you are?

Retention: you are working to keep your staff, right?

Sourcing, recruiting and closing candidates

I will have screen shots, links and resources for you take back to the office.
