About the Organizers

TechRecruit Conferences are all-day conferences that educate Recruitment, Talent Acquisition, Human Resources, Operations Executives and Hiring Managers across all industries on how to use innovation to attract and hire talent. LAX TechRecruit - Los Angeles 2018 TechRecruit - Orange County 2018 What Past Attendees Are Saying: “We encourage our team to seek out opportunities for ongoing professional learning and development. I use this as a selling point when chatting with prospective candidates. I am happy to report that I was able to experience this first hand at LAXTechRecruit. A lot of discussions around recruiting products, Artificial Intelligence, culture fit and how to establish processes that can prevent biases which can become a detriment to your team. Thank you!” "I learned so much in one day at LAXTechRecruit then I ever learned at those multi-day conferences." "The Boolean & Advanced Search workshops were incredible! I have so much to bring back to my team." "Very skilled recruiters and talent leaders presenting their techniques to other recruiters. I was able to learn about some real recruiter needs/problems, and also meet several other "influencers" for the first time." "The "How To Build/Scale Talent Acquisition Teams" panel was real. It's comforting to hear other company representatives (in particular the moderator) experiencing the same challenges us younger companies experience day to day. This discussion was a difficult topic for most companies and the information/answers provided were very helpful." “The panels and corresponding hosts were well chosen, well spoken, and informative. I was especially impressed with the choice of panel hosts/facilitators and their efforts to keep the momentum going and drive the conversation through each panel.”
