Algorithm Alchemy: Turning Talent Search into Gold

Parking and Directions

6:00 pm – Registration, Networking Reception & Demos
7:00 pm – Panel Discussion (Q&A)  

** Click here to buy tickets **

In an increasingly connected world, competition for top talent is transforming the recruiting landscape. New matchmaking algorithms, advanced on-demand and video interviewing software, skill testing, job auctions, predictive analytics andsocial recruiting are a mere sampling of the latest platforms and services being offered by startups.  These new technologies are leveling the playing field and reshaping the interactions amongst job seekers, recruiters, and hiring managers.

According to Bersin by Deloitte, the total value for talent acquisition in the U.S. market is $124.0B.  While online job boards and aggregators currently hold the largest slice of the pie, new entrants who have developed compelling matchmaking platforms between job seekers and employers are poised to take away significant market share.

Questions to be addressed by our panel include:
- Will resumes and cover letters become obsolete?
- Do the new tools threaten the work of today’s recruiters or would they provide additional value?
- Will behavioral assessment tools shift the perception of who is considered to be the most qualified candidate?
- Will new marketplaces replace online job postings as we enter a new era of powerful employment matchmaking tools?

Join us on Thursday, June 19th to find out.
