Workplace Application: This session will show you how to establish digital recruitment priorities and discuss ways to think and execute your digital strategy differently.

Digital recruitment might be the key to an effective overall recruiting strategy, but the question is where to begin.

Learn how the Chicago-based company Advanced Group has realigned its recruitment efforts online by using creative and truly out-of-the-box digital recruiting strategies, such as emoji job descriptions, spoof music videos, pay per click and programmatic ad buying. During this session, you will:

·         Learn how to prioritize talent attraction efforts using digital strategies.

·         Learn how to conduct a SWOT analysis for digital recruitment efforts.

·         Learn how to establish digital talent priorities while also establishing smaller incremental goals that can lead to
