The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, from 7-8 pm ET (4-5 pm PT). The #TChat radio portion runs the first 30 minutes from 7-7:30 pm ET, followed by the #TChat Twitter chat from 7:30-8 pm ET. The competition for top tech talent is fierce, employers must still find creative ways to entice people with in-demand STEM skills to join their company — getting to know who they’re targeting is critical prior to and especially during outreach. According to Dice’s recent Tech Candidate Sentiment Survey, at least 50% of candidate respondents said that they wish recruiters would do more research on them and their background before calling, but this is significantly down from 2013. The right online research tool combined with continuous relationship building and developing a repository for a ready pool of tech candidates, companies can competitively source the most qualified people when the time is right. Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn about how research and relationship-building win in tech recruiting with this week’s guests: Ashley Fox, Program Associate at Partnership for Public Service; and Pete Radloff, Lead Technical Recruiter with comScore.
Ashley is a Program Associate at the Partnership for Public Service, a non-partisan non- profit organization that works to revitalize our federal government by inspiring a new generation to serve and by transforming the way government works. She manages GoGovernment.org, the Partnership’s online resource for students and jobseekers, and builds workshops on recruiting and hiring for federal employees.
Pete Radloff has 15 years of recruiting experience and has worked with such companies as comScore, exaqueo, National Public Radio and LivingSocial. Pete’s experience and expertise center around in using technology and social media to source, recruit, enhance the candidate experience and promote strong employer brands. Pete also currently sits on the Board of Directors for RecruitDC.
We hope you’ll join the #TChat conversation this week and share your questions, opinions and ideas with our guests and the TalentCulture Community.
