What’s new for recruitDC Spring 2016?

As we continue down this journey that is recruitDC, we strive to continuously improve and evolve the conference. Whether it’s technology, a tweak in registration, or even how the event is laid out, we like to keep pace with the way the conference experience changes across our industry.  As we march toward our next event on May 26 at the Marvin Center on the campus of George Washington University, I’d like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the changes in store for your recruitDC experience.

First Ever Event Chairperson

Recently, we introduced Teresa Green of CEB as recruitDC’s first Spring Event Chairperson. The role of the Event Chair is to help connect our content with the community and ensure we’re offering relevant material to you, our attendees and customers.  Teresa will kick off our event with some significant remarks about the day’s activities, but also her insights into the recruitment community in general. We’re excited to have her participate in such an important role for the conference.


As we reviewed past event survey feedback, it was agreed that we needed to break our events into educational tracks. That way, our attendees know what to expect as they consider what concurrent session to attend.  This Spring, you’ll see our agenda is broken into three tracks.

·        Back to Basic: whether you’re a rookie recruiter, or a seasoned pro who wants to get a refresher on some of the new expectations for recruiters.

·        Advanced Recruiting Techniques: This track is for the recruiter or branding pro who wants to step up their game, or focus on something very specific related to your efforts.

·        Management and Strategy: This track is for the recruiting leaders in our community. You’ll discover new methods for managing and leading recruiters so that you can provide more value to the talent acquisition function in your organization.

Whova Event App

On the technology side, we’re incorporating a new mobile event app on the Whova platform. This will be a one-stop shop for all your recruitDC conference needs. You’ll be able to access the agenda, plan out your day by choosing in advance what sessions you want to attend, communicate before or during the event with your fellow conference goers, take photos of your day, or even tweet out your takeaways from the excellent speakers we have lined up. You can download the Whova app from your app store of choice. Once you’ve created your account, find our recruitDC event and join us. If prompted to enter an event code, use rdc16spring. We’re excited to see how the Whova platform improves your conference experience!

So there you have it. As if you didn’t have enough to be excited about with the excellent agenda for the day, you have 3 more reasons that will make recruitDC Spring 2016 the best recruiting event you’ll attend this year! Make sure you get your tickets today!
