Jobs2web Founder to Present at 13th Annual HR Technology® Conference and Exposition

Leading Interactive Recruiting Expert Doug Berg Will Help Attendees at This Year's Event Fully Leverage the Possibilities of Social Media Channels

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  Jobs2web, the leading provider of interactive recruiting solutions, today announced that Founder and Chief Recruiting Geek Doug Berg will be a featured speaker at the 13th Annual HR Technology® Conference and Exposition, the world's largest exposition of HR technology products and services. Berg will speak on Wednesday, September 29, 2010, from 3:15-4:30 p.m. at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Called "the world's best conference on HR technology," the HR Technology Conference planners have broken with their 13-year tradition of no vendors presenting alone by inviting Berg to share his insight, experience and savvy at putting together all the Web 2.0 pieces that go under the collective name of "Social Recruiting." In a session titled "Get the Best Advice on Social Recruiting!" Berg will present specific social recruiting methods that work -- and those that do not -- as well as share metrics that support them.

"We're honored to be chosen to represent a business-critical function that is experiencing rapid change. As a self-professed 'recruiting geek,' I am passionate about sharing what's now possible using proven techniques that are starting to fulfill the promise that social media provides regarding talent acquisition," stated Berg. "I'm also looking forward to meeting with my colleagues in the HR technology field and discussing how we can all better capture the opportunity of the web."

"After 13 years, I am a stickler for my own rules," said conference co-chair Bill Kutik. "But Social Recruiting is an area where so many companies are experimenting, floundering and failing, that I just had to feature the one person I've met who has figured it all out."

In addition to founding Minneapolis-based Jobs2web, Berg has worked with hundreds of companies to leverage the internet for recruiting on the web and is a pioneer in the interactive recruiting industry. Prior to Jobs2web, Doug founded, a leading technology career site that had nearly 1 million IT professional members nationally and won PC Week's number 1 career website in 1999. Berg was also founder and CEO of Quantum Consulting & Placement, a Minneapolis-based IT consulting and placement services company. Berg holds an honorary doctorate degree from Capella University.

The HR Technology Conference & Expo will take place September 29 - October 1, 2010, at Chicago's McCormick Place. Some registration discounts expire on July 30.
