Online Recruitment for 2009

I was forwarded this press release from Enhance Media for their “Year ahead Conference” which should be of interest with some major speakers, in particular Facebook. They were probably the buzz in recruitment this year, with all the application trying to take advantage of social networking and the promise of a new way to get candidates, personally I would be interested if any worked!

29th January 2009, Royal Geographical Society
This week Enhance Media announced the date and line up for their annual ‘Online Recruitment 2009 – The Year Ahead Conference’.
Now in its fifth year “Online Recruitment 2009 – The Year Ahead Conference” will be held in central London on 29th January 2009. The event is one of Europe’s largest annual online recruitment conferences and this year’s event will address the key issues that HR professionals, media owners, recruiters and advertising agencies will face in the online recruitment space in 2009.
Attending the event will give anyone involved in recruitment an essential insight into direct recruitment, using the internet to source candidates, how to reduce hiring fees and which channels and technologies can deliver manageable, effective online hiring in 2009. The topics and speakers include:
Facebook – Facebook will show how recruiters can use social networking sites to engage with candidates and how Facebook’s own tools can generate high quality applications for a role.
