Yes! recruitDC is this week. Are you ready for it? Lots of new things going on to make the spring event fun, creative, inspirational, and most importantly better connections with your colleagues.
recruitDC events are about learning best practices but also connecting with new friends! We have two great ways to connect and reconnect. First, check outthe Whova – a mobile event app in the app store of your choice. Once you’ve created your account, find our recruitDC event and join us. If prompted to enter an event code, use rdc16spring. Also at the event, you will be getting Networking cards. These cards are important because you have to answer the questions by finding folks with the right answer. Once the cards are complete, you turn them into the sponsor tables. Why bother? Well the networking cards are going to be used to draw the day’s winners for great prizes from our sponsors and the special graphic images created throughout the day. So find out who has season tickets, who was a past presenter or who commutes in from West Virginia!
Bring your creative energies to create your own name badge. Yes, that’s right! You can write your name, Twitter handle- anything you want ( keep it clean) on your name badge. We will have creative stickers so that you can personalize your name badge. No more boring name, what you do and company you are with. This is the time to show off who you really are!
The Washington DC area is home to many great schools and George Washington University isone of the most iconic universities in our area. Having our event at GWU allows us to keep the cost lower and allow more attendees. However, we do have to have the event on two different floors. So all you FitBit, Jawbone, Misfit, and Garmin wearers you will definitely getting your steps in. You will also want to wear comfortable shoes. Most of the activity will be occurring on the third floor – registration, coffee, lunch, the Back to Basics and Advanced Recruiting Breakouts and of course, the AfterParty! The keynote sessions and Strategy and Management breakout sessions will be happening on the Ground Floor in the Betts Theatre.
We have Inkquiry Visuals joining us to graphically record some of the day’s keynote sessions and breakout sessions. You will have a chance to win any one of these images. We are also asking the community if they have a testimonial about recruitDC to share this on a testimonial card that will be given to the artist and she will create a full pictograph of how recruitDC has changed the community.
Yes we are bringing back the Pixilated Photo Booth and this will be set up by lunch time through the end of the After Party. Stop by, multiple times if you would like, to take pictures with your friends and colleagues to share.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Indeed and HiringSolved we will have a great Mediterranean buffet lunch available. During lunch you will have a chance to either network, or join a table with specific topics so you can continue the networking and learning over lunch.
