RecruitCon Boston Recap

On a warm fall day in Boston a few dozen recruiters and TA professionals gathered to talk shop. Held at the swank ALOFT in Boston, we sat is a purple glow of lights like something out of a Star Trek movie. Put on by BLR, the event brought together industry pros such as myself, Joel Cheesman and Susan Vitale of iCIMS.


I took notes from most of the speakers throughout the day and jotted down some of the highlights/tips they talked about. My session was on career sites and I’ll be publishing that audio on the RecTech podcast in the coming weeks.

Part of the TA team from Definitive Healthcare spoke about their recruiting challenges and successes;

Joel Cheesman from Ratedly Talked about Glassdoor and Company review sites;

Elena Valentine from SkillScout showed off some great job description examples;

Susan Vitale from iCIMS spoke about how to make recruiting technology work for you;
