The Kennedy Information’s 2008 Conference & Expo is officially underway. Today marks the last day of the Expo, and the Sourcing and Retention Summits begin tomorrow. Gautam’s presentation was a hit yesterday, with as many (if not more!) people standing to hear him speak as there were people sitting. He’ll make two more appearances in tomorrow’s Sourcing Summit doing a presentation on Online Recruiting Web 2.0 Best Practices and participating in a Town Hall “Ask the Experts” discussion on all sorts of sourcing issues that might come to the table. Here are descriptions of the sessions:
Wednesday, November 19 - Sourcing Summit

Hearing directly from an expert in the trenches, this session uncovers the latest Web 2.0 online recruiting insights and walks you through a practical “how-to” guide for tapping into the “new again” online recruiting market. You’ll get tips on how to start your online recruiting initiatives that you can implement today to attract and retain the new generation of talent. With the knowledge from this session in hand, you’ll learn how to gain significant recruiting efficiencies by effectively utilizing Web 2.0 technologies as an element of your recruiting mix.
