The mobile world is upon us. Technology is king. And yet your organization’s recruiting and HR teams are often the last one’s that are thought of as innovators in the mobile communication, recruiting, and SEO spaces. What if I told you that you were wrong? That your human resources, recruiting, and talent departments are doing sexy things with technology?
“Is Mobile & SEO Too Sexy for HR?” is the title of a proposed session that me and Carrie Corbin (@thealphafemme) are hoping to lead at the 2012 SXSW Interactive Media Conference. You may remember me writing about the conference in the last two years here & here. Carrie and I also think it’s time that the HR and recruiting teams have a “seat at the table” amongst the PR, digital media, and technology folks at SXSW which is why we submitted our panel.
Carrie works at AT&T and uses technology, mobile, and SEO to find job seekers as part of their Talent Attraction team. They do some pretty amazing things like integrating QR Codes and search engine optimization into their candidate engagement strategies. I, on the other hand, work with companies helping them to understand how to use these tools using my experience in HR and Recruiting as a consultant.
