The three-day conference offers expert insight on best practices, current trends, metrics, and statistics in today's talent landscape and how to effectively leverage social recruiting strategies to find the best candidates. The event provides sourcers, recruiters, and HR professionals with information and knowledge to develop, grow, and measure their social recruitment strategies immediately. Other presenters at the show will include representatives from Pizza Hut, Walmart, and Electronic Arts.

Keeping aligned with the SRSC's theme, Vitale will be speaking on "Effectively Targeting and Engaging Millennial Hires." Her goal is to help attendees understand Millennials and how the generation functions within the workplace. Additionally, Vitale will guide attendees through innovative sourcing and screening technologies and how these tools can improve a company's talent acquisition processes. 

In the past few years, social recruitment has become the rule rather than the exception. With an estimated 10,000 baby boomers entering retirement every day for the next 20 years, a new generation has come to the forefront in the workforce, Millennials. With this new generation dominating the workforce, HR professionals need to adjust their original methods of sourcing and recruiting talent.

"As the baby boomer generation retires, more and more Millennials are filling the gaping holes within the job market. An estimated 40 percent of the workforce will be comprised of Millennials by the year 2020," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "As HR professionals shift their focus to a younger demographic, they need to update their talent acquisition techniques. Recruiters who embrace social, mobile, and video technologies are well positioned to attract and engage with this new generation of talent."

Following Vitale's closing keynote speech, iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, invites all conference attendees to a networking reception. During an evening with good company and drinks, HR professionals can learn how iCIMS helps optimize talent acquisition processes.
