An annual open house or campus recruiting visit barely scratches the surface of the recruiting opportunities made possible by events. Every event is a recruiting opportunity, after all. Here at Splash, we’ve sourced amazing hires for hard-to-fill positions from events we’ve hosted that had nothing to do with recruiting - or rather, they weren’t traditional “recruiting events”.
Some of the most effective event-driven recruiting strategies are built around providing the types of candidates you’re looking for with value thought leadership and relevant education.
Indeed Tech Talks, for example, is a monthly technical speaker series hosted at Indeed’s Austin office. The talks feature experts sharing their real-world experiences on the challenges of developing great products. The talks attract top talent from the Austin tech community - the exact people that Indeed would want to hire.
Attendees might not be open to a new opportunity right now, but that can change fast in today’s market.
