Arbita, the leading provider of global job advertising distribution solutions, is pleased to announce that Don Ramer, CEO and Founder, will be serving as a Learning Track Leader at the Atlanta Recruiting Roadshow on September 25, 2007 at the Bill Moore Student Success Center on the campus of Georgia Institute of Technology. Don will be speaking on the negative effects of "antisocial networking" and impersonal recruitment practices that limit candidate referrals, prolong fill times, and increase the cost-per-hire.

Throughout his lecture, Don will identify the different aspects of antisocial networking, such as slow responses to candidate needs, unclear communication, recruiter passivity, and the emphasis on recruitment technology at the expense of genuine recruiter-and candidate- connectivity. Don will illustrate an essential link between process and acquisition, encouraging the adaptation of recruitment methods to meet the individual needs of the jobseeker. He will outline the necessary steps toward improved workplace conditions and refined networking practices.

"Don Ramer is the recruiting industry’s role model for integrity and accountability," says John Sumser, the Roadshow’s organizer and keynote speaker. "When he speaks about effectiveness in recruiting, it comes from over 25 years in various aspects of the business. His company, Arbita, is modeling and defining the future of the industry. I am really looking forward to Don’s talk at the Roadshow. One of our goals at the Roadshow is to introduce the next generation of recruiting leadership to each other. I know that this is a pet project of Don’s. We’re glad to have his support and participation."

"It’s important that we understand the human needs of our candidates," says Don Ramer. "Candidate retention and acquisition is highly dependent on genuine communication between jobseeker and recruiter. The process and methods of recruitment must not interfere with direct human interaction, and the way in which networking operates greatly influences the success or failure of an organization. I’m pleased to lead a discussion that will focus on a solutions-centric approach toward the establishment of truly inspired workplaces," he concluded.
