Yesterday we hosted our inaugural technical recruiter happy hour. We invited top talent managers from startups in NYC to join us for a knowledge exchange re: challenges in recruitment / sourcing, personnel retention, the latest software and tools, and engineers’ motivations and passions.
Some specific topics / mentioned resources included:
- Twilio’s engineering apprenticeship program
- Seekout – a sourcing tool
- Mixmax – an emailing / scheduling / follow-up tool
- Training programs / thoughts around unconscious bias in hiring
We were fortunate to be able to host such a thoughtful and knowledgeable group, and look forward to the next one!
