Hiring people using mobile technology is set to revolutionize the practice of digital recruitment.Smart recruiters know Americans check their mobile devices first, and relish the opportunity to respond to messages while on the go. On 23 September 2013, a mobile recruiting conference in Georgia pulls these threads together. There, visionaries, recruitment leaders and practitioners will share innovative ideas and visions for mobile recruiting in the future. Judging by the 2012 MREC, this is something to watch closely.
The 2013 Mobile Recruiting Conference has amassed innovative thought-leaders from around the world. Keynote speakers for 2013 include Dr. Gerry Purdy (Chief Mobility Strategist, Compass Intelligence), Mathew Caldwell (Director, Global Talent Acquisition, Mozilla), Leela Srinivasan (Group Marketing Manager, LinkedIn Talent Solutions), and Rob Humphrey (Strategic Initiatives Leader, LinkedIn). These share center stage with 30+ speakers from the recruitment industry – each with remarkable insight on a core topic.
MREC is owned and operated by mRecruitingcamp LLC who founded it in 2010. Since then, the showcase event has become a calendar highlight at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center located on Technology Square in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. The conference objective is to highlight the contribution mobile recruiting makes to the search for top talent. This has already taken it to the top spot.
“We are joined this year by thought leaders from prestigious companies including Accenture, Adobe, Amazon, Dolby Laboratories, E&Y, Groupon, LinkedIn, Mozilla, PepsiCo, UPS, and more,” MREC founder and chief mobile evangelist Michael Marlatt advises. “MREC 2013 is a must-attend event for any recruitment professional who needs to contact talent anywhere, at any time.”
The agenda for the 2013 MREC kicks off on September 23 with check-in breakfast, welcome address by Chris Hoyt of PepsiCo, and keynote presentation by Gerry Purdy of Compass Intelligence. A series of think tanks follows interspersed by light luncheon – plus a cocktail reception at the end of an exciting day. September 24 follows a similar pattern, before closing with a panel discussion as master of ceremonies Chris Hoyt wraps things up until 2014.
“This is a great opportunity to gather fresh insight into the rapidly evolving world of mobile, and how it interfaces with the drive to find top talent for America’s leading enterprises,” MREC founder Michael Marlatt emphasizes. “The overarching benefit is the rare chance to network with a roomful of industry and recruitment innovators, whose minds are focused on the topic and are overflowing with fresh ideas.” Booking information is available from http://mrec13.eventbrite.com.
