The goal of each individual Recruiting Roadshow is to cause members of the local recruiting world who may not have easy access to the industry’s network infrastructure to have access to each other.
Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) August 23, 2007
RCI Recruitment Solutions has teamed up with one of the recruiting industry’s most prominent leaders John Sumser, to underwrite and coordinate a series of local events under the newly-created Recruiting Roadshow organization, starting with the Atlanta Recruiting Roadshow on September 25th, 2007.
John Sumser said, "For a very long time, we have behaved as if recruiting were a profession that is practiced identically from setting to setting. The trouble is that the labor market is different from town to town with differing levels of demand, differing levels of supply and deeply differing manners and procedures. While the recruiting industry is globalized, the real labor market is excruciatingly local." John continued to say, "The goal of each individual Recruiting Roadshow is to cause members of the local recruiting world who may not have easy access to the industry’s network infrastructure to have access to each other."
The Recruiting Roadshow is being delivered along the lines of an "unconference" where the content of the sessions is driven and created by the participants. The Atlanta Recruiting Roadshow is a prototype for planned events throughout the U.S. and is entirely supported by industry and community activists. These are people who share Sumser’s vision to keep the focus squarely on the recruiters coming together for a day of learning, networking and community, free from sales pitches and thinly-veiled hype.
The Atlanta Recruiting Roadshow is being held on the campus of Georgia Tech and runs from 8:30AM through 5:30PM. The day’s events include keynote presentations from John Sumser who will be discussing intergenerational recruiting and a presentation by Steven Rothberg, Founder and President of CollegeRecruiter.com who will be sharing insights about using social networks like MySpace and Facebook for recruiting.
During the day there will be networking opportunities centered around a variety of activities which include learning tracks led by Atlanta-based recruiting celebrities like Shally Steckerl and Eric Jaquith, and roundtable sessions led by seasoned local recruiting leaders like Alan Lee (formerly with HomeBanc Mortgage, Wachovia, Bank of America, Coca-Cola and others), and Frank Speer (formerly with Tom James, Acuity Brands and now with the RCI Recruitment Solutions.)
Alan Lee and Frank Speer will be joined on that day by other key figures from the local recruiting industry and veterans like Don Ramer, who is highly regarded as a thought-leader and teacher in the recruiting space.
