What exactly would it mean if candidates and employers were “equals” when it comes to sharing information about themselves during the business process we call recruiting? Would it change how you present yourself as a desirable company to work for? Would we be required to tell the truth about the pay, the challenges, the previous incumbent…and more? Would it make a difference in the quality of candidates that applied? This session will answer these questions and more as we explore who really thinks of candidates as equals.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Monday, June 17, 2013 - 4:00pm to 5:15pm
