Social Media, Social Networking, Web 2.0, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter – How are these “social media” sites changing the landscape of recruiting? Gone are the days of placing an ad in the paper or on a job board, receiving resumes and beginning the interview and selection process. In today’s world of recruiting, it’s all about networking and connecting with passive candidates.

On Thursday, June 12, 2008, Susan Burns, Founder of Talent Synchronicity, will lead a one-hour Professional Development Seminar — Make Your Talent Strategy Come Alive with the Power of Today’s Social Networks — that will take you behind the curtain of these popular new networks and show you how to put them to work for your organization’s talent strategy.

The edge of the social media wave is just beginning to be felt, says Susan Burns, and with it comes the potential for sweeping change. Navigating through this vast, ever-shifting landscape is no longer an option but a must to ensuring competitive brand positioning and attracting the best talent now and in the future.

The art and science of social networking is the common thread to broadening your reach, engaging talent and differentiating your brand – all while executing a cost-effective strategy.
