The Near and Far Future of Recruiting: SmartSearch® sponsors webinar on how technology will steer the future of the industry

OCEANSIDE, CA November 14, 2011 — Advanced Personnel Systems, Inc. (APS), the makers of SmartSearch®, announced the sixth webinar in its best practices series for recruiters and staffing industry professionals on “The Near and Far Future of Recruiting” will be presented November 17, 2011.

Connectivity, influence and relationships have long been the foundations of recruitment. Yet as technology forces from outside the recruiting industry steer the future, recruiters will be compelled to embrace new technology to assert more influence, be more connected and spend time building relationships in new ways. The Near and Far Future of Recruiting webinar looks at how “permission-based-engagement” will define recruitment’s future, and cover trends in mobile recruiting, social media for engaging candidates and “proximity networking”, and cloud computing. Participants will also learn how to avoid technology backfires, and practical methods for measuring results in the new paradigm.

The Near and Far Future of Recruiting webinar will be presented by Donato Diorio, Founder and CEO of Broadlook Technologies. As the owner of a top billing placement firm, a personal top biller, thought leader, and a pioneer in Internet research software, Mr. Diorio’s in-depth knowledge and charismatic personality make him a highly sought-after speaker on best practices. Focusing on managing technology and human interaction, his presentations have been well received by numerous organizations worldwide.

The program will also touch on SmartSearch® integration with Broadlook. Space is limited, with SmartSearch users given preference, to register visit
