AGENDA
6:30-7pm Registration
7-8pm  Presentation

LOCATION
VMware 1155 Perimeter Center W #100
Sandy Springs, GA 30338

We all have interesting stories from the Recruiting trail. From diabolical hiring managers to bat$h!t crazy candidates, we have seen a lot. Some stories have happy endings, and others have left us bruised and scratching our heads. But through it all, there are some lessons to be learned. Please join your colleagues for a fun evening of sharing, and maybe a little learning sprinkled in. Be prepared to share stories, and if you have a tip or two, or a trick that you’ve developed, the group would love to hear that, too.

Rick Denius will be moderating the January 2018 Session: Recruiting War Stories – Lessons Learned.  Every recruiter and talent acquisition professional has at least one crazy story to tell about a recruiting situation.  From time to time I say, “Wow, Now that would be great reality TV.  You can’t make this up!” Well it’s time to reminisce and learn from the trenches. Come network with the best of the best talent acquisition professionals in Atlanta and share your recruiting war stories, Thursday January 18th at VMWare

See you there!
