You can call her “Barbie” if “Barbara” seems too long – but do “call” her, by which she means, send an email (see below). Barbie Holtzman is eclectic, elegantly educated, exceptionally experienced, and excellent at many things, especially adept at analysis, naturally analytic – she often does it without thinking, and sometimes without realizing she is even doing it. Good at the information gathering and data collection that goes with it, expert at expressing material in a way that those she explains it to grasp concepts they need to plan strategically, implement tactically, and achieve well-measured goals – regardless of the topic they have asked about or the task they have set out to accomplish.

Each of the three #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 complementary technology developers and vendors. The events will allow attendees in the college relations space to meet and network in an informal environment with today’s most innovative thought leaders. You’ll enjoy a fast-paced, engaging, and challenging learning experience, all while having a good time.

Topics to be covered will include:

  •     Attracting the best and brightest;
  •     Big data;
  •     Building your internship program;
  •     Career services;
  •     Diversity;
  •     Gamification;
  •     Hiring data and other metrics;
  •     Interviewing;
  •     Management trainee programs;
  •     Military versus college recruiting;
  •     Myths about Gen Y;
  •     Mobile;
  •     Social media.
  •     Sourcing secrets; and
  •     Targeting schools.

Our venues in Times Square, Atlanta, and Dallas only seat 150 people each and a couple of dozen of those are already spoken for by presenters and track leaders so tickets are quite limited.

A very limited number of $100 and $125, discounted, early bird tickets are available at for our events on:

  •     Monday, December 9th at the EY (formerly Ernst & Young) headquarters in New York’s Times Square;
  •     Wednesday, December 11th at the Matrix Resources headquarters in Atlanta; and
  •     Friday, December 13th in Dallas.

I hope to see you in December!
