Social Media for Targeted Talent Recruitment


Presented by:

 Josh Powell, Business Development Manager, JRD Systems

Jill Day, Senior Talent Advisor, Gordon Food Service


Hosted by:

Whittaker Associates, Inc.


The availability of quality talent is the #1 obstacle firms in the U.S. and abroad face in regards to their staffing efforts, according to LinkedIn’s 2015 U.S. Staffing Trends report.


Talent Sourcing is the most useful method to overcome this obstacle. Over the past decade, talent engagement strategies have changed significantly with the need to find and attract skilled workers on a decreased budget. It’s no longer effective to wait for replies on job boards. Companies must compete for talent by actively seeking out skilled workers to fill positions and create a pipeline of qualified candidates, and social media provides the platform to source these individuals.


Join the Pro Learning Lab on Thursday, June 25th as our expert panelists, Josh Powell and Jill Day, show you the tools to source, connect, and attract top talent for your organization!


You will learn:


  • Why is talent engagement changing?
  • What is Talent Sourcing?
  • Who are active and passive candidates?
  • What strategies to employ to build relationships?
  • How to use social media to engage with candidates?
  • Where to store information for strong succession pipelines?


Josh Powell has over 7 years of experience in Recruiting and Staffing. He is currently the Business Development Manager of JRD Systems, a Michigan-based Technology Solutions and Staffing firm that specializes in placing Technical Talent in permanent and contract positions.


Jill Day has over 15 years experience in Corporate Talent Acquisition and works as Senior Talent Advisor for Gordon Food Service (GFS). GFS is the largest, privately-held, broadline foodservice distributor in North America with over 14,000 employees and $15 billion in revenue.
