Hi Everyone! We're looking forward to our first Meetup of the year on Candidate Experience.

We’ll discuss the factors that have a huge impact on a positive candidate experience and share best practices for applying these learnings.

Our first panelist, Matt Walker, comes straight from the streets of SoMa and is on a constant mission to find the world's best candidates. He's personally worked with over 100 startups in Silicon Valley and his extensive background in agency recruiter taught him that by putting forth every effort to understand people and technology, you can come to a caring, and more accurate way for connecting and matching companies and candidates to find the best fit.
