Co-Preso with LOPSA-LA: Talent Acquisition Workshop with Lori Barfield
Note: This is Co-Presentation with the League of Professional Systems Administrators (LOPSA-LA). RSVP at the the site... https://www.meetup.com/lopsala/events/252836466/ ... so they can scale the food and drink. About the Presentation: From the LOPSA Event Page... Whether you're a hiring manager or a job hunter, come learn the secrets about candidate selection and job placement. Managers: Is your team’s workload growing faster than you can hire new talent? Do you agonize over which candidate would be best for your team? Do you have trouble persuading candidates to say yes, even when it looks like a perfect fit? Come to our workshop, we can help. The goal of this class is to give attendees a distillation of best practices for creating new job positions and filling them. Taught by a long time engineering leader and hiring manager, it has a unique analytical approach that will resonate with engineers. This workshop will be the mentor they always needed. Hands-On Exercises * The Job Posting * Evaluating Resumes * Ranking and Selecting Candidates Audience Takeaways * Toolkit for making hiring tasks a more routine part of the job * Unique, analytical methodology for evaluating candidates fairly If you contact the instructor in advance, and come prepared, you will also take away: * A completed job posting that’s been hard to finish * A custom, analytical ranking system for filling their most stubborn job opening * A stack of evaluated resumes About the Location: After turning off of Jefferson on to Alla Road, there is free street parking at the first right Coral Tree Place. From there you can enter the Reserve business park at the Gate 1 main entry which is the gate near the end of the road, or via a pedestrian entrance near gate 2.
