Global Gathering of Corporate Recruiting Leaders, in Chicago on September 14-16 2010
Mark S. Andrekovich, Chief of Human Capital and President of MAXIMUS Tax Credit & Employer Services, will be joining Jim Lanzalotto, Principal of Scanlon.Louis, at the onrec.com Online Recruitment Conference & Expo 2010, to be held at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, in Chicago from September 14-16, 2010 where they will be speaking on How Employers Find the Best Talent in the Communities They Serve.
Both Mark and Jim have been in the recruiting industry for 25 years and have experience with effectively finding the right people for the right job - in the right area. Their knowledge on the opportunities that arise from a populous that doesn’t have a technological advantage to compete in this day-in-age of recruiting online will provide a great opportunity for those who attend onrec Expo 2010 that are looking for an understanding of how to tap into obtainable local talent.
onrec Expo 2010 provides a thriving network exposition hall packed with the latest tools and services to help your organization hire the best, and is highly regarded as the “must attend” recruitment event of 2010 where corporate recruiting practitioners and thought leaders will educate hundreds of attendees with cutting edge training (HRCI Credit pending) on innovative sourcing, screening and recruiting techniques and technologies.
onrec Expo 2010 will bring together delegates and exhibitors involved in recruitment from around the world to share their common interests, provide a business driven networking environment, and stimulate discussions, debates, and beneficial partnerships.
Only 45% of households with income less than $50,000 have Internet access in their home. Given this, employers who broaden their community-based recruitment focus will be afforded new opportunities to uncover a diverse array of hard-to-reach candidates - including those who are not wired for the Internet and cannot access job boards, and therefore rely on the resources provided by local community organizations to find jobs (e.g., state job agencies/Veterans & disability assistance organizations). In this session you will learn how to utilize these resources to effectively recruit locally and find the right person for the right job - right in your front yard.
