Hirepalooza Thought Leaders

Hirepalooza-Header15-3

At Hirepalooza (San Francisco, June 1-2) thought leaders in recruitment are coming together to discuss: how to stay top of mind and how to differentiate your brand to candidates. In a market that is flooded with opportunity, being top of mind to candidates and enabling them to distinguish your brand is critical. Because in recruitment—everyone who is looking for the same type of talent that you are is your competitor (not just the ones in your industry).

Even though only thirty percent of talent is actively looking for a new job, according to a recent LinkedIn survey, forty-five percent of professionals are researching new jobs and networking ever month.   Because of this companies have to become more cognizant of the talent that is available in the marketplace—and what talent is looking for.

Talent often knows about the companies that continuously advertise that their company is hiring. Take Applovin’s billboards on US 101—if you drive to or from San Francisco, you know that Applovin is still hiring. Regardless if you, are looking for a new role, you’re aware of Applovin—and if seventy percent of the talent market place is “passive talent” that’s a huge advantage for Applovin, because when that talent finally decides to start to look—they’re going to go right to Applovin’s hiring page.

If we go a step further and think of talent as an opportunity pipeline we can begin to see a much larger picture. If forty five percent of talent is researching and networking then we can discern that there’s actually only about fifty five percent of talent that’s not actively looking: meaning they aren’t networking or researching new jobs. Which doesn’t mean that they aren’t being approached or even entertaining new offers—it just means they aren’t actively looking.

Therefore, if forty-five percent of talent is researching and networking each month, forty-five percent has become our new active or “inbound” source for recruitment then we have to start rethinking our approach. There’s no one solution for recruitment—but there are key points or takeaways: remembering that your company is not a candidate’s first priority is key—and distinguishing your brand from its competitors in talent is a critical.

Join companies like Twitter, Lyft, IBM, HP, and 40+ more at Hirepalooza (San Francisco, June 1-2) in discussing how to overcome objections in the recruitment industry and create meaningful connections with talent.

OneStack Launch Event + Integrate Conference Preview

graph-image-sm
The OneStack Launch Event + Integrate Conference Preview was last night, and we’ve partnered with the Galvanize data science team to create a visualization of the “Technology Graph” of how technology products on OneStack integrate together! The above data on this visualization is based on tech companies that have already registered for Integrate 2015 as well as the technology products they integrate with. The larger the product’s name, the more connections it has on OneStack. You can now register, add your technology product, and add / manage integration partners.

mbw-mc-banner
As a part of MobileWeek, the DevNetwork team will ring the NASDAQ opening bell on Monday April 20, 2015 at 9:15a EDT. MobileWeek is where thought leaders in New York City converge to discuss and discover the newest innovations in smart phones, wearable technologies, and hyper-local Internet of Things. In honor of the occasion, Geoffrey Domoracki, Chief Executive Officer, and Jonathan Pasky, Co-Founder of DevNetwork, will ring the Opening Bell. Read more. The mission of MobileWeek 2015 is clear: host New York City’s largest celebration of Mobile technology and the Internet of Things. Smart Phones, Internet of Things, and Wearables are the fastest growing area of technology innovation. Mobile + Device development is the enabler of a connected life. We are facing the second generation of mobile technology, where smart phones and devices are more than just an extension of the desktop web – they are creating new touchpoints across health, communication, entertainment, business, and technology. Smart phones and devices are not “the new desktop”, they are a new way to live and work. In 2015 we ask all participants the question: What would a 100% Mobile Life look like? Will we ever truly break away from the desktop-centric life? The MobileWeek team looks forward to your participation in our 2015 conference and our entire week of city-wide partner events!
