Winning the Engineering Talent War Online
About This Session
<p>With the flood of activity, I realized that I could finally answer some recruiting questions that had been gnawing at me. Through oodles of visual graphs and examples, this presentation will answer:</p>
<li>How do the engineering recruiting practices vary across different types of recruiters and companies?
<li>What do the big guys get right?
<li>Are in-house or external recruiters better?
<li>If you're a start-up, what's the best recruiting strategy to win the talent war?
<li>Is talent moving north?
<li>If you're an engineer, what's the best way to position yourself online?
<li>What are the biggest surprises learned from this experiment?
<p>This is not your typical best practices presentation or a veiled attempt to convince you that Meebo does everything best. This is my own personal side experiment that I initially conducted to find fantastic recruiters. However, I unexpectedly stumbled upon some great insights about the recruiting landscape that I'm more than willing to share with others.</p>
