Over the past few years, the discussion of candidate qualifications between recruiters and hiring managers during an intake meeting has become much like a Saturday night poker game with friends. The players put on their best poker face and devise a strategy that often involves withholding crucial information from each other, whether intentional or not. That lack of crucial information dramatically affects the outcome and who wins. However, winning the poker game of recruiting, by finding and presenting the right candidate for the right job at the right time, involves much more than simply discussing and looking for required and desired skills.

During this presentation, Eric Jaquith, senior director of Global Recruiting Strategy for Randstad Sourceright and one of the world's leading sourcing and recruiting experts, will detail what information is necessary to gather upfront and how to quickly access and utilize it most effectively. Drawing on the same strategies used to win poker games -- and by thinking differently -- recruiters can dramatically improve their strategy skills and increase their odds of winning.

HR and training & development professionals, hiring managers and executives interested in learning how to enhance the candidate experience by digging deep to find out what hiring managers really want are encouraged to attend this education session.
