The Modern Technology Professional: Attracting socially connected talent

HR & Tech SF continues to explore the quickly merging realms of social media and recruiting. Sourcing candidates online has been status quo for the last 15 years. Recruiters and companies post jobs, search databases, and find candidates—pretty simple. But social networking has changed the rules of the game. We’ve entered an age when our personal and professional lives intersect. So what challenges does that present to recruiters? How do we interact with candidates where they live? Join us as Mike McTaggart from Dice delves into some of the emerging ways to attract the socially connected technology professional. Mike will present insightful data about candidate behavior online and what it means for employers and recruiters.
On the menu: ideas, exchange, drinks and light snacks. This event is free, but space is limited. RSVP please.
About Mike McTaggart Mike McTaggart has over 25 years of recruiting experience, entrepreneurial success and industry leadership. Mike spent time on the front lines in Silicon Valley in the 1990s working with top employers as the online recruiting space was developing and defining itself. He joined Dice seven years ago. In his role as a senior sales person at Dice, he works with a wide variety of companies and helps them implement their recruiting strategies. Mike helps guide these organizations through the wide variety of Internet offerings and at the same time he is on the front lines of what may be the single most exciting change in sourcing tech candidates since the inception of job boards – the Dice Talent Network.

    Fantastic conversation last night. Thanks to all for participating and sharing their experiences and opinions. The future of how we find jobs and professionals is being redeveloped today. Many challenges, but lots of people reflecting on it and trying out new things. Thanks to Mike McTaggart for spurring and welcoming this debate.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
