Small studio with large aspirations

Pros: Probably the strongest talent Bryan (the CEO) has is to find people that truly mesh incredibly well together. The team is stronger here than I’ve ever been a part of. The company culture is also stronger here than I’ve ever seen, the management is highly motivated to create a studio that isn’t just “average”

Cons: Turnaround times on projects are always very fast, much faster than needed to reach the quality desired. Working efficiently is a must, else the project will suffer.

Sound like a cool place to work?

Reach out and let them know why you think they are awesome!

    Recruit from Your Head and Your Heart

    Kara Yarnot | Vice President | HireClix

    To be an amazing recruiter, you need to win the minds and hearts of everyone involved in the process – your candidates, your network, your hiring managers, and your leaders.  Using the best technologies and applying analytics to your recruiting is just the basis for amazing recruiting. You must stay connected to the hearts of others.

    Kara will share a personal journey that reminded her how personal touch matters in creating first impressions, building your network, and staying connected to people. At the end of this session, you’ll be inspired to:

    • Create a candidate experience that inspires people to be an ambassador for your brand

    How to be an effective, one person Recruiting Team

    Veronika Henderson | Recruiter | American College of Radiology

    Let’s get down to the bottom of recruiting, the really exciting part that goes beyond just order taking and sourcing. My session would cover smart recruiting approach to data and communication.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Setting expectations with both hiring managers and candidates;

    2. How and why it is important to utilize the recruiting data (I will show how to create Google Analytics accounts and run the reports);

    3. Recruitment Branding

    How to Build Community to Get Clients, Candidates, Dates and Fame

    Chris Comrie | Founder | Glance AI

    "Learn why building your network is the single best thing you can do for you, your company, and people you want to help. The rules have changed, it's not as hard as people want you to think. This talk applies to both megastars and those early in their careers.

    This is for you if:

    • Candidates aren’t answering your email, phone, InMails or DMs.
    • You want to show you are not a TRANSACTIONAL Recruiter or Sourcer and care about giving back.
    • You want to learn how to join the Recruiting and Sourcing Influencer "Gold Rush" before it’s too late.

    What you get:

    • Learn the exact steps to get in front of potential candidates and clients in a more meaningful way.
    • Learn the psychology of why people like to buy and nobody likes to be sold.
    • And what you need to learn from Justin Bieber, Facebook, and the 80/20 Principle.

    Gut Check: Candidate Behaviors Can Predict Quality of Hire

    Ryan Healy| Founder & President| Brazen

    There is no doubt predictive analytics can play a big role in helping talent acquisition teams target the best candidates for their organizations. However, without statisticians or business analytics professionals on the team, making sense of all the data can be next to impossible. Learn how recruiting teams can learn more about candidates from the behaviors they display. Gain insight into leading organizations' recruiting processes that enables top talent to find them as opposed to the other way around.
