This event is sponsored by Crosworks career and talent strategists - empowering people with clarity and focus to do their best work. They believe that every employee, at every level, can and should do work that both provides personal fulfillment and moves the organization forward.


Come hear an all-star panel talk about talent acquisition and job hunting. Today it's much less about posting a job and finding the right candidate. It's also much less about applying for a job and getting that offer. Candidates and employers have many sources available to help during this process to shorten the cycle on both sides. 


Finding a job is harder than ever. While the majority of open positions are posted on company websites and job boards, it seems that applicants submit their information into a black hole only to wait, and wait, and wait some more. So how do you get that call back? Come here some tips on how to use your resume, your network, and your social profiles to stand out from the crowd.


Filling jobs is harder than ever. With the decreasing unemployment rate, demand for higher wages, and competitive environments, applicants almost have their pick of employers. Whether you are hiring entry level college grads or experienced staff, positions are becoming harder and harder to fill in timely manners and on budget.
