Recruitment Engineering in the Transhuman Age

Michaela Madová & José Kadlec

Learn the ropes of recruitment engineering from a recruitment practitioner and a former software engineer who founded the talent sourcing center and recruitment agency with over 140 employees in 5 years, awarded as the 415th fastest growing company in Europe by Financial Times.
Josef hasn’t written a self-help book yet, but if he did and merged it with the recruitment industry it would be called: “Recruiters are from Mars, Candidates are from New Jersey.”
Recruiters create artificial robots and fly around in augmented reality but candidates are subjected to boring LinkedIn invitations or a telephone call.
We hear it from everywhere – virtual reality, mixed reality, chatbots, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and others. But what is really your competitive advantage in today’s sourcing market?
This will be completed by a case study on digital tools and gamification by the Talent Acquisition Manager at Coca-Cola HBC.
In this session:
  • How to dominate the recruitment market through people & tech
  • Which operating sourcing model is the most optimal and what is the data behind the most successful sourcers and 360-degree recruiters
  • 5 practical rules on how to become a competitive recruiter or sourcer
  • Recommended sourcing & recruitment stack
  • The future of sourcing and what emerging technologies are applicable already today
  • Business personal branding as the most underestimated element of today’s HR marketing
  • Case study: Gamification in the recruitment process of Coca-Cola HBC

Sourcing Behind the Mask: What the Pandemic Means for the Modern Sourcer

Johnny Campbell

Sourcing is hard, and despite the new consensus from hiring managers (thanks again, pandemic) that it is easier right now, it absolutely is not. We're facing day-to-day challenges that did not previously exist.
Many things have changed since the beginning of this year, obviously.  Sourcers have new obstacles to overcome while still pummeling through common problems they faced before the year from…well…began.
In this session we’ll cover:
  • Why sourcing is harder
  • And why Hiring Managers think it’s easier
  • Hot is cold, cold is hot
  • DE&I and how it factors into the current state
  • Lay off lists​ and how to use them
  • Old is the new New!
  • Start at home
  • Boomerangs​ – what does that even mean?
  • Changing your priorities
  • Referrals 2.0

    Virtual Career Fairs

    Eugene Garla

    It’s not always possible to meet face-to-face with all of your candidates - but don't let that stop you from missing out on the best talent.

    Virtual Career Fairs are scheduled online events where recruiters can engage candidates in real-time over live chat, text messaging, video conferencing or any other channels from anywhere, 24/7.

    In this demo, see how you can leverage XOR’s Virtual Career Fairs solutions to:

    • Create amazing virtual hiring experiences for high-volume hiring
    • Engage talent over live chat, video and text messaging to increase conversions
    • Manage candidate conversations to hire better people, faster


    Eugene Garla is Director of Sales at XOR who specializes in helping recruiting teams use modern recruiting communication, such as virtual career fairs, text messaging, chatbots, and artificial intelligence, to meet their hiring goals.

    Can I have a side of respect with that phone screen?

    Giselle Saatchi

    Remember the Golden Rule… a principle of treating others as you want to be treated.

    Remember the last time you went to a fast food drive-thru, you drive home and you realize you are missing part of your meal because no one bothered to check your bag before you left to enjoy your meal.  How did you feel?

    You took the time to drive to grab something to eat and the restaurant employee didn’t bother to ask you if you needed condiments or check your bag to ensure your order was complete.  Frustrating these days, huh?

    Same concept, make your candidate feel valued, informed, and want to continue the conversation. Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of our candidates. I know we all are really busy with intake meetings, reviewing resumes, sourcing, etc. but at times we forget how important an effective phone screen is long term.

    In this session I will discuss:

    • The importance of a phone screen.
    • What are the key components of the phone screen that are important to a candidate.
    • How to become a brand ambassador of your company.
    • How to leave your candidate well informed and make them a brand ambassador for your company as well.
    • How to leave your candidate feeling respected and informed.

    Fish in a Barrel (Source Where the Talent Is)

    Mark Tortorici & Erin Mathew

    Sometimes we make sourcing too hard on ourselves. With all the tools, tricks and technologies, it can be easy to get lost. You can also feel stuck if you focus too much on your go-to sourcing method. Or even worse, you've fished all the candidates out of your part of the ocean.
    User groups, forums, coding groups, meetups, organizations, alumni groups, study groups, etc., are great because of the high amount of candidates with similar backgrounds.
    The only problem is searching some of these.  Some of these sites have very little information on the profiles and some of the networks absolutely require you to be logged in before you start messaging the users.
    Never fear! In this special sourcing lab, Erin Mathew and Mark Tortorici will show you not only how to find these candidates but also how to contact them.
    No matter which job reqs you work on or which industry you hire for, there are groups that you can source from.
    If you are having trouble generating candidates or even finding out where they are, then go fish (source) where all the candidates hang out!
    The number of passive (or active) hires will increase when you expand your search to these areas.
    In this session:
    • Understand the unique challenges of high volume recruiting
    • Receive recommendations on how to solve for those challenges
    • Learn which high volume hiring tasks can be automated to increase productivity and efficiency
