Catch the Recruiting Technology Wave


“The combination of John’s passion, enthusiasm and knowledge will ensure delegates are in for a high octane, thought provoking session.”

Larkspur, Calif. – June 15,2009 – Recruiting pioneer, John Younger, President and CEO of Accolo Inc., will transport recruiters, human resources professionals, and company executives to the world where recruiting technologies turn into relationship building mechanisms at the 2009 OnRec Conference in Chicago this November.

Younger’s seminar, entitled Catch the Recruiting Technology Wave, will illuminate how the sociological and technological advances already well under way, will change an industry whose processes and approaches have remained largely unchanged for the last 40 years. He will cover how treating each applicant with respect in the recruiting process will no longer be optional, and how nearly anyone will be able to fill even the most difficult jobs.

“When you can reach anybody in the world within two or three clicks of a computer mouse, one must realize that we are embarking on an age where recruiting technologies must move to a relationship building model that goes far beyond the function of recruiting. The nature of the communication and experience changes dramatically,” said John Younger, CEO, Accolo. “Companies who fail to recognize how badly applicants are treated today, the adverse impact this is having on the company’s brand, and how most recruiting technologies only seek to propagate these issues will be at a serious disadvantage.”

The Online Recruitment Conference and Expo 2009 brings together a unique mix of online recruitment leading thinkers and commentators, with HR practitioners and leading industry suppliers.

Managing Director of OnRec.com, David Hurst comments, “I am delighted John is able to participate in our Chicago show. My advice to anyone interested in online recruitment and how it will develop in the future is to attend this session. The combination of John’s passion, enthusiasm and knowledge will ensure delegates are in for a high octane, thought provoking session.” Visitors will have the opportunity to hear their thoughts on the development growth in the US and globally, of the adoption of online recruitment and implementation, now central to so many companies’ recruitment process.

The Onrec Expo 2009 – Global Conference for Online Recruitment will take place November 3rd and 4th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. To obtain additional informational or register for Younger’s talk, please visit www.onrec.com.
