Online Meeting
Map and Directions


February 9th, 2022
Start Time: 10:00 am
End Time: 12:00 pm

Join us to learn how to attract the most candidates based on their skills and not their credentials. Attracting and finding candidates is more critical than ever. As workforce dynamics have changed, our hiring practices must change to create interest for job seekers. A skills-based approach to hiring can increase applicants and reduce hiring time. Reducing bias in job descriptions promotes inclusivity and equity in hiring processes and encourages candidates to apply. In SKILLFUL® Talent Series 101: Attract the Right Talent, you will learn how to:

* How to focus your job posting on the skills candidates need to attract the best talent
* Broaden your talent pools to all qualified applicants
* How to focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion while reducing bias in your hiring process
* Source and recruit the right talent that you're struggling to find
