#tru Conferences, the global leader in recruiting unconferences, and CollegeRecruiter.com, the leading niche job board for college students searching for internships and recent graduates hunting for entry-level jobs and other career opportunities, together are bringing to New York City and Dallas a day each of learning, engagement, and challenge for those in corporate recruiting, third-party recruitment, human resources, talent acquisition, branding, social media, technology developers, and vendors.
If you’re tired of flying halfway across the country for three days of sessions which mostly bore you to death, then join us. One of our attendees at a past event said that the information came at her like water from a fire hose. Another attendee said that if he had known just how interactive the sessions would be, he would have skipped his morning coffee. If your idea of a recruiting conference presentation is a 60 to 75 minute, 25 slide PowerPoint deck, delivered by someone who clearly has never taken a public speaking class in their life then you’ve never been to one of our events.
Both of the #truCollegeRecruiter events are aimed at corporate recruiters and other talent acquisition leaders who are involved in the hiring of college and university students and recent graduates as well as complimentary technology developers and vendors. The events will allow attendees in the college relations space to meet and discuss in an informal environment with today’s most innovative thought-leaders. You’ll enjoy a fast-paced, engaging, and challenging learning experience all while have a good time.
Topics to be covered will include:
- Attracting the best and brightest;
- Big data;
- Building your internship program;
- Career services;
- Hiring data and other metrics;
- Management trainee programs;
- Military versus college recruiting;
- Myths about Gen Y;
- Social media;
- Sourcing secrets; and
- Targeting schools.
Rules are few and far between but there will be absolutely no selling or pitching by the presenters and track leaders from the podium. There’s no dress code but most attendees will likely come business casual.
Mornings will follow the TedX / Ted Talks format of 20 minute presentations so successfully used by CollegeRecruiter.com at its three FedCollege conferences in Washington, D.C. and the College Recruiting Bootcamp conference it co-hosted with LinkedIn at its corporate headquarters in May 2013. Anyone who has been to a traditional recruiting conference knows that the typical 60 or even 75 minute presentations tend to be filled with anecdotes and stories which can only be described as tangential to the meat of the presentation. If you could force those presenters to strip their presentations right down to their core and strictly prohibit them from any type of selling or pitching then you’d be left with about 20 minutes of real content. And that’s exactly what you’ll get in the mornings at the #truCollegeRecruiter events in New York City and Dallas.
Afternoons will follow an unconference format of one hour discussion tracks with several tracks running concurrently so you can pick whichever one is of most interest. What’s an unconference? The #tru unconferences are a series of moderator-led, discussion-based conferences organized worldwide, where the emphasis is on conversation and the free exchange of ideas and experiences. The unconferences are aimed at recruiters and human resource enthusiasts. Want a more nuts-and-bolts description? Well, picture a room with chairs pulled into a circle or semi-circle and a discussion leader whose job it is to introduce their topic and then moderate the discussion so no one person dominates the conversation and that the conversation stays more or less on track. And picture that room with no handouts, no PowerPoint, and lots and lots of interactive discussion amongst the attendees. What you’ve got is a gathering of minds, experiences and opinions where the attendees (or active participants) lead the conversation, all spiced up and (dis)organized by Globaltru founder Bill Boorman in New York and partner Craig Fisher in Dallas. Each session lasts for about an hour and that hour will feel like about 15 minutes.
For those who really want the nitty gritty, agendas are available for:
The Presenters and Track Leaders
We’re incredibly fortunate to have a world-class group of presenters for the morning sessions and track leaders for the afternoon sessions. Most have delivered outstanding presentations at regional, national, and even international recruiting conferences and have agreed to give up their day and in some cases travel across the country because they understand that these events will help improve how recruiters and other human resource leaders recruit and retain today’s college and university students and recent graduates. A full line-up of our gifted presenters and track leaders is available on our truCollegeRecruiter Speakers page.
“I wanted to personally thank you for hosting such an incredible event. I flew out from Atlanta, Georgia and it was well worth the cross country flight. New York will be closer for next time!”
– Luke Scanion, University Relations Talent Advisor/Program Manager, Kaiser Permanente
The $99 Gift Certificate
One of our many incredible presenters is Shally Steckerl of The Sourcing Institute.
