Algorithm Alchemy: Turning Talent into Gold

*Click HERE to buy your tickets*

**Note**: RSVP on this MeetUp page DOES NOT register you for the event

Startups are turning the tables on recruiting  with targeted prospecting algorithms.  Applicant search is transformed into precise talent-matching through the collection and curation of data from numerous sources. The new platforms level the playing field, reshaping the interaction between job seekers, recruiters, and hiring managers.

There is a new gold rush in the global talent acquisition market! According to Bersin by Deloitte, the global talent acquisition market is now worth over $150B annually. While online job boards and aggregators continue to hold the largest slice of the pie, new entrants are poised to take away significant market share.

Join us on Thursday, June 19th to find out how today’s alchemists are exploring new frontiers in the job market, disrupting an industry that has become inefficient and unwieldy:

Will resumes and cover letters become obsolete?Do the new tools threaten the work of today’s recruiters or augment their value?Will behavioral assessment tools shift the perception of who is considered the most qualified candidate?Will new marketplaces replace online job postings in an era of powerful employment matchmaking?

    Being an HR Job Matching SaaS startup in development, it was priceless to be in the same room with industry innovators and leaders, to listen, learn, and be validated. That being said the program was excellent, balanced panel, good presentations, and gracious 1 on 1 follow up at end by presenters. In was able to make meaningful connections as I always do at VLAB events. Thank you for you hard work, and thoughtful programs provided to a grateful audience.
