Recruiting in
Extraordinary Times

Panel with Q&A, Wednesday conference highlights


 Last year was tough on recruiters. The pandemic and its   repercussions devastated some talent acquisition teams, heaped   new demands on others, and proved to be a historic change   agent as virtual recruiting and onboarding a remote workforce   became the norm for many. Join our employer panelists to learn     how organizations have been impacted by the global pandemic,   social justice and the DE&I movement.  Panelists will share their   insights about what career counselors can do to assist the   people they serve in these extraordinary times.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn how employers are dealing with the current situation, and accommodating to changes in the job market.
  • Learn how companies are dealing with shifting/unfillable positions
  • Discuss the challenges organizations are experiencing now and anticipate in the future.
  • What digital tools are being used to address new hiring processes and creative ways of staffing/responding to the current challenges.
  • Advice we can share with jobseekers to optimize their employment prospects.
