Howdy there, folks!

As recruiters, we often zero in on a candidate’s current skills and experience. But what if we’re missing out on exceptional talent by not considering their potential for growth and adaptability?

Well, what if I told you there’s a whole new game plan just waiting for you to discover?

Join us on August 8 at 2 pm ET with our very own star player, Brian Fink, author of Talk Tech to Me and Senior Talent Acquisition Partner at McAfee. We’re going to huddle up and dive deep into the concept of hiring for potential. It’s all about looking beyond a candidate’s current skills and experience and focusing on their capacity to grow, adapt, and drive future success. It’s a whole new way to play the game.

Discover the Power of Hiring for Potential

In the world of recruitment, experience isn’t the only player on the field. Sometimes, the key to finding that MVP lies in their potential, not just their past. This session is your playbook, filled with insights and strategies to transform your approach to hiring.

Here’s What You’ll Learn

We’re going to explore the concept of hiring for potential, its importance, and how it can broaden your talent pool. We’ll discuss how this approach can boost diversity, spark innovation, and ramp up employee engagement. Plus, we’ll talk about the financial implications and the long-term value it can bring to your team. It’s like finding a secret set of tactics that could change the game.

Here’s a sneak peek at our game plan:

Questions to Guide Your Recruitment Strategy

To help you navigate the process, we’re going to get real about hiring. We’ll ask the tough questions: What does this role really need? What happens if we can’t find the right fit? And how long can we wait for someone to reach their full potential?

But we’re not leaving you hanging with just questions. Brian has some solid strategies to share, like how to write a job ad that gets the right attention, why group challenges could be your secret weapon, and how online tools can help you spot talent you might have missed.

So, are you ready to lace up your boots and start hiring for potential? Join us and let’s change the game!
