There was another first-rate area event put on by RecruitDC at the Artisphere in Arlington, VA this past Thursday.

If you are in recruiting, human resources, employment branding or marketing, or otherwise interested in talent and you didn’t attend, you definitely missed out.

Rocketing out of the gate with a spunky opening session by Laurie Ruettimann on personal brand, the conference covered discussions on the hottest recruiting technology, how improv makes you a better recruiter, OFCCP compliance, connecting with technical talent, and ways some area companies are leading the way in elevating candidate experience. There were solid learning opportunities for just about everyone.

We even saw some serious rapping going down. Temp problems, anyone?

One of the best things about the RecruitDC events is the organizer’s ability to attract national-level speakers. This is a fantastic community born and raised in the shadow of our nation’s capital and should be part of your professional development tool kit.
