    Guest Speaker:    Brandon Carroll, VP, Koofers Campus Recruiter, Koofers, Inc
    Topic:                   "How Technology is Changing HR: Sourcing and Screening

    Brandon Carroll will explain how technology has completely changed the way potential candidates interact with companies. Qualified candidates no longer have to find jobs; they find them. With tools like LinkedIn, Koofers Campus Recruiter, finding qualified candidates has never been easier. Posting on job boards is not effective anymore in finding the best talent to fill an open position. Video interviews have replaced the phone screen and online profiles are quickly replacing the resume. What has changed, why is it all changing, and how can HR professionals adapt to this new world.  This presentation will walk HR professionals through the current landscape and provide them with strategies on how to stay ahead.


    Learning Objectives: 

    1) Demonstrate an understanding of the various HR technology tools available for HR professionals to utilize.

    2) Understand the changing landscape of HR, especially as it relates to sourcing and screening candidates.

    3) Understand strategies to provide the highest quality applicant pool, all while maintaining compliance and alignment with the organization’s strategic goals.
