#socialrecruiting summit streams here on Monday… and you can help shape the agenda

Next Monday, a few hundred recruiters are set to gather in Minneapolis for an industry discussion on social recruiting at the third #socialrecruiting summit. But if you can’t make it (and there are still 18 spots left as I write this), you aren’t totally out of luck.

As we have over the past few years with ERE’s events, we will be streaming the event live here on the ERE.net homepage for free for those of you who can’t be in attendance. We kick off on Monday morning at 9:15 a.m. CDT! You can view the entire agenda and what will be streaming here.

The goal for this event is not to tell you WHY you should be using social recruiting tactics, but to help you learn HOW you can successfully implement them into your recruiting function. Our session leaders will all share stories from their successes (and things they have learned from their failures) that have all been tried at their organizations — organizations like Best Buy, Facebook, Principal Financial Group, DAXCO, AT&T, APCO Worldwide and Marriott, among others. You can see more about all of our session leaders here.

The event will also feature several unconference sessions, where the agenda will be shaped directly by those in attendance… and you. While these events won’t be featured on the stream, you can still submit topics of interest to you and the industry. You can also snag one of the remaining few spots at the summit as well. To submit your topic idea, just enter it into the form here:


The stream will take place on the top of the ERE.net homepage through Ustream. There is nothing that you will need to download; just come to the site on Monday morning, shortly before we kick off the event at 9:15 a.m. CDT, and you will see the box. You just need to click the play button and you will be all set. There is also a chat component there, so you can talk to others watching the stream, and even those in attendance in New York.

You will also want to check out Twitter for more great conversation from the event by following the #socialrecruiting hashtag and the @socrecruiting handle. The past two events featured well over 1,500 tweets during the event, much of which are from those in attendance, so this is another great way to join the conversation even if you can’t make it to Minneapolis.

So make sure to clear your calendar for Monday, as this is certainly something you won’t want to miss. And if you able to make it out on Monday, there are still (at least as I post this) a few tickets left to attend.
