Speaker: Kevin Crews; AIRS, an ADP Company.

Topic: “Out of the Box Sourcing and Recruiting Ideas” and “Creative Search Tactics to Find Talent below the Surface”

Learning Objectives
1. Implementing conference calls for candidates
2. How to send interactive multi-media job descriptions
3. Creating a “pop-up” chat option when candidates apply to positions
4. How to send a video email
5. How to access the “deep web” to find candidates

Session Description: Out of the Box Sourcing and Recruiting Ideas: One definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Is that your current sourcing strategy? Do you need a push to be more creative in your research tactics? This session will cover unusual, but effective sourcing channels to find and communicate with great candidates.

What you’ll learn: • Implementing conference calls for candidates • How to send interactive multi-media job descriptions • Creating a “pop-up” chat option when candidates apply to positions • How to send a video email • Useful “GIP” programs • Going beyond standard reference checks

Creative Search Tactics to Find Talent below the Surface: Today’s reliance on LinkedIn has caused some of today’s greatest recruiters to become complacent in their passive candidate search tactics. In order to be a successful sourcing professional in the highly competitive recruiting landscape, it’s necessary to use a combination of resources and creative tactics to find great candidates. This session will remind attendees how to think outside of the sourcing box to locate hard to find and specialized talent. Using deep-web search tactics, social media resources and even mobile apps, it’s possible to locate great candidates who don’t utilize the sites that most recruiters rely on in today’s typical recruiting plans. This session will demonstrate best in class practices for finding candidates below the surface.

Speaker Bio:
Kevin Crews joins AIRS as a highly respected recruiter and trainer with over 20 years in the training and recruiting profession. Kevin brings a hands-on perspective of how to find purple squirrels in today’s talent acquisition environment. Kevin attended Purdue University where he earned two undergraduate degrees, one in Education and one in Management. He also holds an MBA from Kent State University.

Beginning his career in computer programming, Kevin soon found himself working to build a training department and developing and teaching technical courses to an IT staff.

As a recruiter, Kevin has hired and trained for Fortune 500 companies including Aon Hewitt, Discover, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Sears, OfficeMax, ALLTEL as well as the University of Chicago (NORC).

Kevin currently resides in Plainfield, IL (suburb of Chicago).
