Last April, The George Washington University Career Center, college job board CollegeRecruiter.com, and HR solutions provider RECSOLU teamed up to host a half day, non-profit, no selling, purely educational event for hiring managers, recruiters, and other human resource professionals who worked for the federal government. We hoped for 50 attendees but ended up with 72 attendees and a LOT of incredibly positive feedback.
This December, we’re back with an all new agenda on Thursday, December 8th for those who work for local, state, and federal government organizations. We’re also extending the days by a couple of hours so that we can add a lunch and student panel to the agendas!
To ensure maximum content delivery, we’ll again utilize the TedX format of 18 minute presentations followed by 12 minutes of networking breaks. This ensures a fast moving program with a large number of highly relevant presentations along with ample time for peer-to-peer networking among attendees.
Presentations: Steve Ehrlich, TMP Worldwide Advertising and Communications – Why Employers Need To Be Mobile
