There was certainly a lot of learning and debating at last week’s Jobsite sponsored TruLondon4 event! As guest track leader Jason Lauritsen said in his recent blog, when you get 100+ recruiters (agency and in-house) together then you are bound to get energy, cpnversatio, passion and conflict!
From Talent Communities to defining what we actually mean by ‘Talent’, the future of recruitment agencies and the future of job boards, there were opinions shared and visions debated.
And in keeping with unconference tradition, TruLondon attendees don’t only share their thoughts through social media platforms, they also write blogs to pass on key learnings and talk about how they are implementing them in their own businesses.
There have been some fine blogs written already around the main talking points at TruLondon 4 and here we share our favourite five:
Are Agency Recruiters Lazy?
This was a recurring theme during the two days, when agency and in-house recruiters talked about their different approaches. This blog from Social Talent’s Johnny Campbell looks at some of the issues and solutions, and concludes that agency recruiters under-value themselves.
Is there a Future for In-House Recruiters?
There was much heated debate about the various methods and approaches of external and internal recruiters, and in particular about which of the two had the healthier future. In this post from the TruLondon blog the main protagonists, Matthew Jeffery and Kevin Wheeler, discuss their differences! Thankfully here’s a referee on hand!
Small Changes, Big Differences
Often it can be the smallest tip, the one that’s easiest to implement, that can have the biggest impact on your business. In this post the founder of Tru Unconferences, Bill Boorman, writes about a couple of small changes that have made a big difference to candidate flows.
Are Recruiters killing LinkedIn, or is LinkedIn killing Recruiters?
The way that recruiters use the LinkedIn network came under close scrutiny, with the fear that post and pray was becoming source and spray. It can be a powerful tool, but only if used the right way. This post from Barclay Jones’ Lisa Jones explores further.
Jason Lauritsen Reflects
Our last blog featured Jason’s takeaways from the tracks he led, but in this piece from Martin Couzins, Tru Events content curator, Jason reflects on some other tracks that he attended, and the unconference format in general.
