ERE Recruiting Conference

The ERE Recruiting Conference is a community-led and driven event that prepares and equips talent acquisition and recruitment professionals with everything they could possibly need to do their jobs better.

Hosted by ERE, the industry’s most-trusted resource of news and information for the last 20 years, this is where pressing TA challenges are solved, aspiring recruiters and talent acquisition managers become leaders, and leaders grow into trusted advisers. The networking opportunities are second to none, and together, through adviser-led hands on training, presentations, and small group discussions, attendees will return to the office with real solutions to their most pressing challenges. They will also leave with a new group of indispensable peers, mentors, and advisers that can be called on to discuss specific topics or to just share ideas and progress updates.

What to Expect

Learn New Stuff, Not Old Hat

Greg Hauser - Ingram Micro

Learn new insights, takeaways, and ideas. We’re no fans of events where you hear the same stuff you got in 2007.

Actually Meet People

Scott Wintrip, CEO - Wintrip Consulting Group

We’ve deliberately built in time for networking, including the popular roundtables and other interactive sessions.

A Big Mix of Speakers

Alicia Buckles

Speakers are from big companies like SAP and Deloitte … and fast-growing midsize ones like SnapHubspot, Redfin, and Homeaway. And they’re from a really wide variety of industries.

Fun and Food

Sarah Wilson - Indigo

Expect delicious and different foods & drinks, not a soggy-tuna boxed lunch. October’s a pretty time in MN, and we’ll take advantage of it.
