(September 06, 2008) On September 25, 2008, the Recruiting Roadshow will be returning to Frisco, Texas (a Dallas suburb near Plano) for our second annual visit. As usual, the event, including Breakfast and Lunch, is free of charge.

The Recruiting Roadshow is a continuing education project designed to meet the needs of local recruiters in local markets. The event is sponsored by a group of Recruiting Industry vendors who hope to strengthen the industry’s infrastructure. Each Recruiting Roadshow is a half day event featuring four presentations and an interactive networking experience.

Registration begins at 8:00am. The event starts at 9:00am. Presentations are finished at 1:00pm. Lunch begins at 1pm.

The presentations begin with “Spiky and Flat: Why Local Recruiting is Critical in a Flat World”. John Sumser, Founder and CEO of the Recruiting Roadshow, describes critical changes in the Labor Market that offset the trend towards a flat world. The material is a logical follow-on to last year’s Multigenerational Recruiting presentation.

“Next Level Strategies for Creating a Next Level Workplace” is Jeff Kay‘s contribution to the proceedings. Get a birds-eye view of the best practices your competitors are using to woo and retain employees. Jeff runs the world’s largest single site Recruiting Office as the CEO of Kaye/Bassman International. His presentations are always full of energy and useful guidance.

There wouldn’t be a contemporary Recruiting Industry without the work of Hank Stringer. Founder of two major online Recruiting ventures (Hire.com and itzbig.com), Stringer is one of those visionaries who can’t keep the dirt out from under his fingernails. Hank’s presentation, Elements of Excellence in Search Relationships, is his latest take on the Recruiting Landscape. He promises to deliver a list of things you should expect in any excellent Recruiting relationship.

The final piece of the puzzle is an offering from Dennis Smith. (Dennis is also the host of the Dallas Roadshow). Dennis built his career using out-of-the-box thinking. He is one of the leading voices in the world of Recruiting Blogs. He will share his experience using “Advanced Social Sourcing Tools”.
